Hey! Are you planning on breastfeeding your baby? Most people do! The WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding for babies until they are 6 months old. But, only about 25% of families in Canada make it that far, and about 10% don’t make it past the first week.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I have helped hundreds of families reach their breastfeeding goals. Often when I see families for the first time I do a lot of education. There are some things that have come up over and over and over that I keep thinking “if families knew this before birth, breastfeeding would be going a lot smoother”. This is especially true if you are planning on giving birth in a hospital because the systems in place there often don’t promote breastfeeding.
So, this course is for you if:
You are planning a hospital birth
You are planning on breastfeeding
You want to be prepared and empowered to make the best decisions for you and your baby to start your breastfeeding journey out right.
This course gives you quick, easy to understand videos as well as downloadable handouts. We will go through the basics of everything you need to know to get through the hospital system including starting out right, options for supplementing your baby, how to make enough milk for your baby. Enjoy!
