Optimise Your Breastfeeding Experience

  • Ovens Valley Physio and Pilates Shop 5, 153/159 Myrtle Street Myrtleford, Victoria 3737 Australia (map)

Arm yourself with expert knowledge in this FREE three hour workshop facilitated by The BFC's director Dr Sharnie McCooke - Internationally certified lactation consultant.

During this workshop, Sharnie will optimise your breastfeeding success by navigating you through the superfluous and sometimes conflicting information relating to breastfeeding during the prenatal, birth and postnatal periods.

This workshop will cover hand expressing, maternal nutrition, helpful inclusions in your hospital bag, the birth and the breast crawl, different breastfeeding positions, optimal latch and how to achieve it, what to do when the latch is painful, how to identify your baby’s getting enough milk, conditions that affect breastfeeding, when to pump, which bottles to use, when you need to compliment with formula, sleeping and settling, and navigating the advice (oh the advice!!)… what is helpful and what is not so helpful.

Whilst this workshop is aimed at expecting or new parents, anyone can attend. There will also be plenty of time for a individual questions and answers over a cuppa at the end.
