Description

Join us as we explore the tools you need to support new families, prenatally and in the first few days.

Taught by Ngozi Tibbs and Amber McCann, both well-respected birth and breastfeeding professionals in the Pittsburgh area, this class is intended for those training to be birth doulas or those who would like to be better equipped to support the families they serve with breastfeeding.

The class will include information on the following:

  • Breastfeeding as biological norm for infant feeding

  • The biology of the breast and the baby

  • Positioning, latch, and breastfeeding assessment

  • Supporting families before, during, and after birth

  • Common breastfeeding challenges in the first three days

  • Use of supplementation as a tool to support breastfeeding

  • Finding community resources for new families


This three-hour class meets the requirement for DONA birth doula training. We are not currently offering CEUs.
