Introduction to Breastfeeding Class
What happens in the Class?
It is a 3 hour informal class, where you become empowered and confident to breastfeed your baby, when they are born.
Even though, breastfeeding is natural, it is a learned skill.
By learning these skills, you will be a lot more confident and competent in breastfeeding your baby.
It is powerpoint led presentation with slides and video's. There is a practical session where I help you with some dolls and breastfeeding cushions to imagine what it feels like to get baby into a good breastfeeding position.
We discuss reasons and benefits to breastfeed your baby,
latching your baby,
what to expect in the first 40 days and especially after birth,
how to know when your baby is hungry,
how to know your baby is getting enough milk
and lots and lots of other practical tips and information
to help you get off to a great start and recognise and avoid some of the common speed bumps.
Partners/Dads to be are most welcome (and encouraged to come) at no extra cost.
Fee for the class is €80.
Most Health Insurance companies will reimburse for a Breastfeeding Class. Check with your provider
Fee Includes my 36 page booklet for you to take away
Herbal Tea's/ Barry's Tea & Coffee's including decaf provided with biscuits
You will leave the class feeling confident that you have the tools to breastfeed your baby.
When should you attend the Class?
I usually recommend from 30 weeks onwards.
At this stage, you are starting to prepare for baby's arrival and it is a good time to take in this information.
You can attend at anytime though, as I know some Mums like to be prepared early on in the pregnancy.
The Mitchelstown Class is held in Mitchelstown Enterprise Centre,(opposite The Firgrove Hotel),
Dublin Road, Mitchelstown,
The Cork Class is held in the Regus Building, Citygate Central Mahon Cork (beside the Vhi Swiftcare Clinic)
