What Breastfeeding Taught Me
November 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$75
Have you taken some time to really think about what your breastfeeding experience or experiences have taught you? Many of us faced and survived some of the scariest, darkest, moments of our lives when we were breastfeeding. Many of us discovered a strength we didn’t know we possessed.
It would be a shame to not take some time to really honor the gift breastfeeding gave you. To think on it, write about it, then own it. Live from those lessons from here on out.
So, here’s what I propose. Let’s get together and reflect upon what breastfeeding taught you. You will have a chance to think, breathe, reflect, feel, remember. We will listen to one another’s breastfeeding stories. You will ask yourself, “What did breastfeeding teach me?” You will share these gifts, strengths, and new awarenesses with one another.
We may find parts of our stories that are still too hard to process. We will promise to ourselves to take extra special care with these parts of the story. You may consider sharing it with a therapist.
I hope you will join us.
This workshop is for you if:
You are not currently breastfeeding at all or the baby you are breastfeeding is older than one year.
You set the goal to breastfeed in pregnancy and breastfed or pumped for any amount of time.
This is important: even if you breastfed for a shorter period of time than you had hoped, or in a different way than you hoped, breastfeeding taught you a lot. In fact, you may have learned even more through the process of failing to meet your goals and learning how to be flexible.
You are interested in becoming a Balanced Breastfeeding Mentor. This is a prerequisite.
I’m just saying, we don’t learn as many lessons when the path is clear of obstacles.
When and Where?
November 5th and 12th from 7:30 pm to 9 pm on Zoom. Registration for this event closes on October 30th.
