Module 7 Breastfeeding
This class aims to cover all you need to know to start breastfeeding; learn about the first days and weeks of breastfeeding your baby and how to continue with confidence. We explore in detail all aspects of breastfeeding and don’t shy away from talking about some of the challenges and how to overcome them.
Breastfeeding is entirely natural, but it’s also a skill that needs to be learnt. Which is why we here at Now Baby feel that our antenatal breastfeeding class is essential for all parents-to-be.
Our online class is live and interactive, from the comfort of your home – with a recording of the class sent to you, so you can revisit the advice anytime you need a refresher. As with all of our classes, there is plenty of time to get your questions answered by our expert midwives who all are trained to advise and support with breastfeeding, and their support continues long after the class ends via email and zoom if you need it.
Our breastfeeding class is ideal for parents-to-be to explore breastfeeding in the antenatal period and what options they can choose to feed their baby. There are plenty of practical and interactive examples used by our midwives to help you cut through the jargon and really understand aspects such as latching on, how to hand express milk or what positions to use when. All of our advice is evidence-based to ensure you are getting the best advice to guide you in your baby’s feeding journey.
