Are you a first time mom determined to learn as much about breastfeeding as possible but don’t know where to start?
Are you an experienced mom who’s initial breastfeeding journey didn’t go as planned and you want a better experience this time?
Have you met with lactation consultants but still feel lost in your breastfeeding journey?
Did you end your breastfeeding journey early, but wish to try again?
Then you’ve come to the right place! My Lactation Navigation offers courses on breastfeeding and pumping, but not just your average courses. We cover topics such as making more milk as a combo feeder or exclusive pumper, relactation and breastfeeding after breast surgery just to name a few. I've created courses on topics that aren’t covered by most lactation consultants but are .
When I was pregnant with my daughter I attended the breastfeeding course at my hospital and thought I was well prepared for my journey. After delivery I had access to a lactation consultant in the hospital, at my pediatrician’s office, and at a local community center and I STILL struggled with breastfeeding? WHY? I was being given the same generic information that didn’t account for my specific situations and I felt each lactation consultant would just try to solve one problem instead of looking at my breastfeeding journey as a whole.
Social media breastfeeding groups were full of conflicting information, but also not very inclusive: from the groups banning talk about using formula, pumping or trying galactagogues, to other groups existing without any trained professionals, many of the groups left me feeling excluded, shamed and outright confused.
I researched and studied lactation to address my own breastfeeding challenges which culminated in me obtained my certification as a Breastfeeding Specialist. With this knowledge and experience I was able to help my friends in their breastfeeding journeys and I decided to share my knowledge and experience with other mothers like me and created these courses!
By the end of each course you’ll gain more knowledge and resources about the breastfeeding topic. You’ll have a better strategy for your breastfeeding journey and feel empowered in your next steps.
These courses are for you if:
• You want to learn more about breastfeeding, but are overwhelmed with all the available information
• You want more personalized breastfeeding content for your goals
• You don’t have access to a lactation consultant or are waiting on an appointment
