Now Baby On Demand
Nowbaby’s Breastfeeding Course
Our breastfeeding On Demand course is brought to you by midwife Marley Hall and International Board Certified Lactatation Consultant (IBCLC) Miriam Feen. Breastfeeding can bring a lot of joy when done successfully, and for many people, it can be an easy, uneventful journey.
Many others however, face challenges when feeding so having all the information you need before you start can be extremely valuable.
If you are or have decided to breastfeed, this evidence based course aims to inform and support you and your baby to get the best start. During the antenatal class we explore common issues related to breastfeeding and what can be done to deal with any challenges.
What you’ll learn
The on demand breastfeeding course covers the following:
- Anatomy & physiology of breastfeeding
- Understanding breastmilk – how it changes and why
- Establishing feeding (positioning/latch etc)
- Understanding the mother – baby dynamic
- Responsive feeding
- Hand expressing, pumping & storing milk
- Colostrum harvesting
- Breastfeeding problems
- Cluster feeding, appetite and growth spurts
- Maintaining milk supply
Once you complete the course, you’ll find that having all this knowledge will give you a head start in your breastfeeding journey.
This programme is led by Marley Hall (Midwife Marley) who is a leading UK midwife, author, speaker, and mother of 5.
Lactation Consultant Miriam Feen been supporting families for 15 years with all aspects of infant feeding from the antenatal period to wherever they choose to end their feeding journey and anything in between. She is particularly passionate about antenatal education.
The knowledge you will gain from the course will help you to make your own informed decisions about your birth and provide you will a range of tools that you can practice with at home in preparation for the day you will meet your baby.
