LACTATION SUPPORT AND BABY-LED BREASTFEEDING
Our approach to breastfeeding education is based on understanding the newborn’s natural reflexes and the maternal hormonal cocktail that occurs at the time of birth. Anatomy and physiology of the newborn and the breast will be discussed in detail. Ways to support the newborn to self-attach will be discussed. Couples will learn how to know if the baby is latched well and how to know if the baby is getting enough. Couples will learn what to expect in the first days and weeks of breastfeeding.
