Event description

Description

Arm yourself with expert knowledge in this three hour workshop facilitated by The BFC's director Dr Sharnie McCooke - Internationally certified lactation consultant.

During this workshop, Sharnie will optimise your breastfeeding success by navigating you through the superfluous and sometimes conflicting information relating to breastfeeding during the prenatal, birth and postnatal periods.

This workshop will cover:
  • hand expressing
  • maternal nutrition
  • helpful inclusions into your hospital bag
  • the birth and the breast crawl
  • different breastfeeding positions
  • optimal latch and how to achieve it
  • what to do when the latch is painful
  • how to identify your baby’s getting enough milk
  • conditions that affect breastfeeding
  • when to pump
  • which bottles to use
  • sleeping and settling
  • navigating the advice (oh the advice!!)… what is helpful and what is not so helpful.

This workshop is aimed at expecting parents. Workshop prices: $150 per person or $200 per couple. There will also be plenty of time for a individual questions and answers over a cuppa.

Be sure to call The Brisbane Family Clinic on 07) 3358 1585 or email hello@thebfc.com.au to register your spot.
Places are limited and bookings are essential.

Here's what previous workshop attendees have said:

"Sharnie, thank you for opening up your space and knowledge. This talk was FANTASTIC. I found it much more informative, empowering...educational than the other breastfeeding workshops I have attended around Brisbane. HANDS DOWN. I raced back to the car and tried to note down as much as I could remember!! I truly believe EVERY pregnant and new mama needs to attend this workshop.... I could not stop talking about it for the entire day.. This review is not doing how I feel justice!! But please know that I left feeling confident and empowered... armed with a toolbox of knowledge."

"I found this workshop so helpful and loved all the information. I have heard that breastfeeding is very much a practical, 'learn on the job' skill, but I feel like everything I learnt today was super important to know before starting to breastfeed. I loved that Sharnie could relate and explain things so clearly due to her own recent breastfeeding/newborn baby experiences. I also found the other little tidbits of info about things to take to hospital, good products (ie hydrogel breast discs), some baby sleep habit info etc all great as a first time expecting Mum. I'm also stoked to now have a lactation consultant / osteopath's details on hand if I need help postpartum. Thanks so much!"
