Class Description: “Prepare Your Nest Breastfeeding Class” with Mama Bird
The transition into motherhood is one of the most profound experiences in a woman’s life. Join us for an evening full of educating your mind, body, and most importantly, your heart. Learn what your baby expects and how your body works to continue to nourish and care for your baby outside your womb. This intimate, small group class opens up discussion for expecting families with hands on activities by physically going through the motions of caring for your baby in the early days of parenthood; giving moms (and their partners) the knowledge and confidence that will carry through their motherhood journey.
Class includes: Responding to your baby’s needs and hunger cues, understanding how your body makes and maintains milk, how to recognize when your baby is transferring milk, latch and positioning, weight gain & diaper output, maximizing rest, breastfeeding items, creating a safe and practical sleep space, taking time to heal and above all, enjoying your baby!
We begin and end each class with a quiet meditation- If you have a yoga mat, please bring it.
Partners are encouraged to attend :)
