About this event

We're taking a whole new approach to lactation!

The mind/body connection... mindfulness... embodiment practices. What do these concepts have to do with nursing a baby? Everything!

Breastfeeding/chestfeeding is often taught by giving parents the goal of learning positions (such as the "football hold" or the "cross-cradle"). But learning to nurse is not like learning to perform a gymnastics move.

It's much more like learning to walk and then run--through a combination of instinct, body awareness, patience, learning what works across cultures (and even species), and watching others.

If you're already nursing but experiencing pain, anxiety, resentment toward your baby, or exhaustion, join us to learn ways to reverse these issues. If you're expecting, come learn the secrets to help prevent such challenges and prepare for pain-free, joyful, and rested nursing. Family members and birth professionals also welcome!

Upcoming dates:

  • Monday, February 13, 6:30-8:00 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. Topic: "Breast-sleeping" -- Sleep and Nursing for Crib-sleeping and Co-sleeping Families.
  • Tuesday, March 14, 6:30-8:00 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. Topic: Introduction to a Mind/Body Approach to Nursing
  • Tuesday, April 11, 6:30-8:00 PM Eastern Time on Zoom. Topic: Pain while nursing: Acknowledging it, Preventing it, and Resolving it.

These workshops are offered for free as a community service; donations are welcome but not required! One "ticket" order admits you and a support person watching Zoom on the same screen.
