Event Details

Our class

If you are expecting twins, triplets or more — congratulations! You are about to join a very special group of Australian families.

Women who are expecting more than one baby can feel many different emotions, often all at the same time! You may feel joy that you will be welcoming more than one baby to your family, but you may also be worried about how your pregnancy and birth will go, and how you will cope caring for your babies once you get them home. You may be wondering how you will feed your babies and if it is even possible to breastfeed more than one baby.

The good news is that it is not only possible, but many women before you have succeeded in breastfeeding multiple babies. We have drawn on their experience to create our special 'Breastfeeding Multiples' class.

 

In our Breastfeeding Multiples class you will learn about:

  • How breastfeeding works
  • Positions for feeding two babies at once
  • Overcoming challenges
  • Managing the early weeks with your babies.

You will have an opportunity to speak with other mothers who have successfully breastfed multiples. Plus, we will send you home with complimentary handouts and a $10 gift voucher to spend in the Australian Breastfeeding Association shop. Our shop is where you can purchase our booklets that go into greater detail on specific breastfeeding topics.
