Breastfeeding Basics and Postpartum Planning

  • Yoga Haven 72 Main Street Tuckahoe, NY (map)

Becoming a parent is a tremendous life transition. This workshop will help you to understand the physiological and emotional changes that occur in the first few weeks and months after birth, and how to prepare, plan and care for yourself during these amazing, but also challenging weeks. We will also cover the basics of breastfeeding. You will learn how the body makes milk, what happens when mature milk comes in, how to position and latch your baby properly, troubleshooting common breastfeeding issues, swaddling and baby's hunger cues. Don't wait until your baby is born to begin learning! ($75 per couple as stand alone class. $50 per couple if you also register for Childbirth Education at Yoga Haven)

Pregnancy is surrounded by fear as much as it is associated with joy. It is so easy to give in to the fear, especially as a new mother, experiencing labor for the first time. Kelly gave me valuable knowledge of pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum shift, but most importantly, she offered me a safe and compassionate space where I could take the power away from my fear. By the time my baby was ready to be born, I was empowered and excited for the uncharted waters ahead...not afraid. She also prepared my husband, who tirelessly supported me during my labor. I am so grateful for Kelly as a friend and teacher, and would recommend her guidance to every woman and her partner.
