Workshops that make light work of breastfeeding
I run a variety of 1-2-1 and group breastfeeding workshops. Each one is designed to empower you with the knowledge and the tools to overcome feeding problems, resolve your worries, and the confidence to enjoy a happy and balanced journey together. Take a look at the options below and contact me for more information or to book.
Antenatal Breastfeeding Workshop
This introduction to breastfeeding is perfect for expectant mums and their partners who want to find out more about breastfeeding before they give birth.
From what to expect in the first 24 hours after you give birth to how long your baby might feed for, how to store breastmilk, who you might need to support you and the essential equipment you’ll need to have ready, this simple workshop is designed to prepare you and your partner to take the first steps on your breastfeeding journey.
Introduction to Solid Foods Workshop
This introduction to solid foods workshop is designed to help parents better understand the world of starting solid foods.
Registered Dietitian and paediatric nutrition expert, Tamar Mallett, RD and Heidi Nowalany, IBCLC will guide you through the process of beginning solids: including what and how to feed your baby, introduction of common allergens and discussion about the key nutrients required for healthy development. We discuss how to make this transition to solid foods whilst continuing to breastfeed. This consultation is ideal as an overview for all parents, even if your child has already started solid foods.
Back to Work Whilst Breastfeeding
This personalised mini workshop aims to help you in your transition back to work as a breastfeeding mum.
The workshop takes a step-by-step approach from newborn to three months, helping you plan for and work towards meeting your baby’s feeding demands, understand and work your own body’s natural abilities to manage lactation (milk supply) as well as product guidance and info. You will also benefit from helpful tips on settling into a new routine alongside preparing you for expressing milk in the work environment.
Of course, the questions don’t stop there, and having arrived at the point of being able to meet demand and face the potential return to work, it is only natural to have questions about sharing your feeding role with a care giver, and making the most of your time breastfeeding in the longer term. In tackling each step comprehensively, your consultation will give an in-depth look at the various factors and needs to consider. It also acts as a useful resource and guide for you to follow, or simply an informative approach which you can adapt to your individual needs.
