Life with a Newborn Workshop (plus breastfeeding consult)
Preparing yourself to trust yourself.
Because that’s what parenting education should be all about.
Maybe you’re already attending pregnancy and birth classes in Perth. Or maybe your baby is brand new and you’re starting to think you should have invested in breastfeeding experts, a relationship coach, and a sleep consultant – all at the same time.
Stop. Breathe. You can do this.
Prepare the one source you can always trust for answers – yourself.
Learn how to get breastfeeding and healthy infant sleep off to the best start.
Plus some strategies and tools to help you thrive in your new roles as parents.
My approach is very different from traditional hospital breastfeeding/parenting classes. They are designed as a prenatal course because the first few hours and days are so important, especially for initiating breastfeeding.
There has been some amazing research done on lactation and breastfeeding in the 2000s which has completely changed how we should be supporting breastfeeding women and babies. Not all hospitals have kept up with this.
My classes are based on the latest evidence on the biomechanics of breastfeeding, the physiology of lactation (I am currently working towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Lactology at UWA) and not dulling babies’ beautiful mammalian breastfeeding behaviours (which we have been doing with our approach to initiating breastfeeding for decades).
And because you can’t separate biologically normal infant sleep from biologically normal breastfeeding I cover newborn and infant sleep in my workshop too.
I also cover what we know about the importance of the first 1000 days and healthy newborn neurodevelopment.
Finally, I cover some strategies to adapt to and cope with the inevitable disruption and doubt new parenting brings. It is a 3-hour workshop and I think it focuses on what we should be focusing on to support new parents to find joy in early parenting.
Come along to my next Workshop to find out how to get breastfeeding, sleep, and parenting off to the best start.
