WEEK 3: Childbirth Education Course. This course is 3 weeks long. Classes will be held on Saturdays from 1-4pm.
We will discuss strategies to ensure a successful breastfeeding relationship, including education on the 9 instinctual stages of the Golden Hour, and methods to encourage the breastcrawl in the initial breastfeeding experience. We will also discuss methods to promote a positive postpartum experience/’babymoon’. We will practice using slings and wraps for babywearing.
We will also discuss issues that often arise in the later postpartum, including information about cloth diapering, life with a new baby, strategies for transitioning from a couple to a family/adding another sibling to your family, and building community with other families. There will be a question and answer session.
