At this hour-long private appointment, Katie will identify if you have one or more breastfeeding risk factors, and create a breastfeeding care plan with support materials specific to your individual and family needs. Our first breastfeeding goal: 2 weeks!
In this 60-90 minute visit, we will complete a feeding cycle together no matter how you are feeding your baby: directly nursing, bottle feeding, and/or pumping. You’ll leave feeling empowered with a safe and realistic plan to follow. We encourage a breastfeeding support partner to attend if you desire!
I’ve been working with new families for 18 years in Hospital, Birth Center, and Home settings.
I help the families I work with understand that there is no one right way to breastfeed, nor does it need to be done perfectly.
I approach breastfeeding with the humor, tough love, and compassion that you would get from a close friend (you know, the one who calls you out when you aren’t being your best self).
A really important question that all pregnant families need to consider: How are you planning to feed your newborn baby?
This class is a realistic approach to breastfeeding (including pumping & bottle feeding) for expectant parents.
Plan to take this class right as your enter your third trimester – around 28 weeks pregnant. Don’t leave it until 32 weeks or later if you can avoid it. You need to know what to do if baby shows up early!
