About the event

An exciting opportunity to get up-to-date, evidence-based and realistic infant feeding information from International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Clare Watson.

Clare supports parents with breast/chest feeding on a daily basis so is very knowledgable about what the most common pitfalls are as well as being highly trained in lactation generally. This combination of science with practical tips makes for a unique and valuable set of workshops.

The course is split into 4 (60-90min) sessions and, though you are welcome to attend any one individual session, we would strongly recommend booking the course as an entirety.

The price covers admission for you and up to 2 supporters as having a strong team around you can make a real difference. A pack of course materials and complimentary access to the online Natural Breastfeeding course is included for those booking all 4 sessions. Refreshments will be provided.

Week 1 (2nd May) - Making Milk and Mammals: How we make milk, how to maximise it, what are breastmilk and colostrum, role of oxytocin in brain development, responsive feeding and parenting, the role of the other parent and supporters.

Week 2 (16th May) - Getting Off to a Good Start: Birth behaviours, when and how long to feed, skin to skin, hand expressing, what to expect in first few days, contingency plans.

Week 3 (30th May) - Positioning and Attachment: What is good attachment and how to get it, baby-led positions, mother-led positions, preparing your home, gadgets.

Week 4 (27th June) - What to Expect: Growth spurts, infant sleep, barriers to breastfeeding, common issues, how to tell if it is going well, where to get help.
