Where: Zoom
Where to Register: https://themamacoach-carolynmarshall.janeapp.com/#/discipline/9/treatment/18

As mamas, we plan for our births.
We know that knowledge is power. The more you know, the easier feeding can be. We know that feeding support may look different in the hospital during Covid-19. Women are going home as soon as possible after delivery, and sometimes feeding isn’t fully established. Taking this course will help you feel more prepared to nurse your baby!
Join us for our 90-minute virtual live class on prepping for breastfeeding. Carolyn is a former NICU and Pediatric RN. 
Also included are an extensive feeding ebook and a 15 minute 1:1 private prenatal breastfeeding consult with Carolyn to discuss any specific concerns.
In the class we will be covering:
* Anatomy & Physiology of the Breast
* Colostrum and Milk
* Breastfeeding Positions
* Latching
* Newborn Feeding Cues
* Effective Feeding
* Pain
* Common Feeding Concerns 
* Breast Care
* Bottle Feeding & Supplementation
* Pumping & Storing Breastmilk 

Price: $50
Please note that there is some common content in the newborn care course feeding section.

  • Whether this is your first baby or the newest addition to your growing family, this class is for everyone! We recommend attending in your third trimester.

If it’s your 2nd (or more!) baby and challenges with previous babies include not latching on, needing to supplement, exclusively pumping or not breastfeeding for as long as desired- this class is for you!
  • We will go over common pitfalls in the early postpartum period, if supplement is needed, risk factors and what to do about them.
