Breastfeeding Basics

As an experienced Lactation Specialist, doula, and mom, Gillian brings her honesty, humor, and knowledge to create a Breastfeeding Class that has been described as fun, necessary, and refreshing by past students.

This class isn’t just about teaching you how to breastfeed, first it focuses on what the first hour after birth looks like, and explains in detail why that time period is so important biologically to breastfeeding. Then we discuss what normal, successful breastfeeding should look like, what might be wrong when it’s not going as planned, and the inherent rules of the breastfeeding dyad.

Partners, who are strongly encouraged to attend, leave feeling like they know how to support the best possible beginning to breastfeeding, as well as struggles that may arise.

Aside from handouts, and a password protected site for students to get even more resources and videos, families leave with a personal list of support cultivated in class together.

This class can be registered for at Sage Mama, and usually takes places the first Wednesday of every month, or can be taken as part of the Comprehensive Childbirth Education series.
