Want to maximise your chance of successfully breastfeeding? Studies have shown that attending antenatal (before birth) classes can increase how long you breastfeed for

Taught by Justine - mother, midwife, neonatal ICU nurse, and lactation consultant.

This class is perfect for first time parents-to-be (although anyone is welcome).  The aim of this class is to prepare parents for their newborn baby and breastfeeding.

 

In this class we will discuss 'normal' newborn behaviour from a biological and practical point of view up to 3 months old, so you can understand what they need from you, and prepare for the changes that will happen in your life. 

Newborn & Breastfeeding class

The first 3 months after birth is sometimes referred to as the 'Fourth Trimester'

This class is perfect for first time parents-to-be (although anyone is welcome).  The aim is to prepare parents for their newborn baby and breastfeeding

In this class we will discuss 'normal' newborn behaviour from a biological and practical point of view, up to 3 months old.  So you can understand what they need from you, and prepare for the changes that will hapen in your life, and how to look after yourself

Things we will discuss:

  • What should be done immediately after birth to optimise breastfeeding and bonding

  • Good breastfeeding positioning and attachment

  • What is normal, and what is not

  • How to know baby is getting enough

  • Expressing for work or time away

  • Common myths and issues

  • What your baby needs from you

  • Why they behave like they do

  • How to maximise opportunities to sleep 

  • Parents self care

Note - the same information is presented in the HypnoBirthing classes and/or if you see me for antenatal care

You are welcome to ask as many questions as you want.

Classes are scheduled monthly*, are 2 hours in length, and will be held in a comfortable, central location.  You may do the class at any point in your pregnancy but 36 weeks is ideal - so the information is still fresh when baby arrives.  Classes are limited to 4 couples

Price - $50/couple

If you need a lactation consultant appointment after baby is born you will only pay the 'follow-up' fee of $90/hr

*Extra classes may be put on if there is demand.  Private sessions are also available for $150/couple
