About Human Milk Feeding 101

This is a 2-part Human Milk Feeding 101 class being held on August 9th & August 16th. 

In class one (August 9th from 1 - 2pm PT), we will talk about anatomy, benefits and risks to infant feeding methods, lactation hormones, skin to skin benefits for family, optimal latching/positioning, expected colostrum/milk/diaper amounts, and safe sleep environments.

In class two (August 16th from 1 - 2pm PT), we discuss cup-feeding, mammary compressions, labour medications and lactation; preparing for medical-interventions at birth, when medical supplementation may be needed, engorgement, and infant sleep schedules. 

These sessions will not be recorded for the confidentiality and privacy of the participants.
