20 years ago I began my career as a Women’s Health RN which led to a degree as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner and later a Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Over the years as I have cared for breastfeeding moms, I could always tell which moms had taken a breasfeeding class. They were more confident with the various holds and positions, knew how often their babies should be feeding and most importantly — they knew when something wasn’t right and when to ask for help.
I want all moms to feel this confident with breastfeeding and to know the little tips and tricks to make things easier. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret — no one is going to educate you about breastfeeding unless you take the initiative to do it yourself! It’s true. Your medical providers, the nurses in the hospital - they want you to be successful but they unfortunately don’t have the time to tell you everything you need to know to get off to a good start. So mamas, do yourself a favor and learn all you can about breastfeeding BEFORE baby arrives! You'll be thankful you did!
