Breastfeeding Basics and Postpartum Planning

  • Yoga Haven 62 Main St 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! You may attend this workshop with your partner, or alone. Recommended for women who are 27+ weeks.

During my pregnancy, I would hear so many horror stories and conflicting information on breastfeeding that it scared me. Although it’s completely natural, nursing your newborn can be very challenging, especially if you don’t have all the right information. After taking the breastfeeding class, I understood how important breastfeeding is and how difficult it can be on a new mom in today’s world. This class prepared me for this challenge and gave me the strength to exclusively breastfeed my son right from the start.
