You can’t predict how breastfeeding will go. Luckily you don’t have to do it alone.
Breastfeeding, like motherhood, is hard work. And the first two weeks are some of the hardest work of all.
In the Breastfeeding Basics Workshop, we’ll talk about setting small goals, recognizing common risk factors that could cause complications, and planning for the deeply emotional task that is the first two weeks of breastfeeding.
But, most importantly, you’ll be invited into a community of mothers, caregivers, and healthcare providers who believe that breastfeeding should be safe, realistic, and kind above all else.
Back to Workshop
Let’s get pumped for going back to work! Or at least figure out how the heck you’re going to do this.
You’re getting ready to do something hard, mama – leaving your brand new baby with a trusted caregiver and getting back to business is no easy task.
In the Back To Workshop, we’ll help you start to unpack those big emotions as well as review the skills that can help you adapt your breastfeeding relationship to your work life.
You’ll also have a chance to connect with a group of local moms preparing to go back-to-work, and build a community of support for yourself through this transition.
Set realistic goals for the second half of your breastfeeding relationship.
You’ve achieved 6 months or more of breastfeeding! Way to go mama!! You have accomplished what fewer than 50% of mothers who started breastfeeding are able to achieve. That is not a small or easy feat as you know. I hope you are damn proud of yourself.
So what’s next?
This 90-minute workshop will give you the opportunity to explore your options as you enter into the second half of breastfeeding. You will leave with a customized plan for yourself and your unique breastfeeding relationship and the confidence that you have concrete steps in place to achieve your next breastfeeding goal.
Weaning doesn’t have to feel like a break-up. Let’s end or adjust the end of your breastfeeding relationship with kindness.
Your weaning experience deserves as much time, attention, and effort as early breastfeeding.
In the Weaning Workshop, we will create a safe, supportive space to not only reflect on and celebrate your breastfeeding journey, but also to acknowledge the sadness that can accompany this transition.
We’ll also explore how to determine the best time to wean, what to do if baby disagrees, and the gentlest, most effect strategies for weaning when you’re ready.
January workshop date coming soon!
What Breastfeeding Taught Me
Take 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. Let’s do that together. If you are no longer breastfeeding, but you ever gave it a chance, join us.
