Whether you are a health professional, volunteer or birth worker I’m guessing you are here because you want to learn more about breastfeeding. I’ve been helping families to breastfeed for over 17 years now and it’s a job that I absolutely love! I feel extremely privileged to work alongside these parents at such an incredible time of their life. There is nothing more uplifting than seeing the look of pure joy on a new Mother’s face when her baby is feeding for the first time. Or when she is experiencing the first pain-free latch in 3 weeks. I see families transform and fall even deeper in love right in front of my very eyes. I often find that for some parents, no matter what practical changes they make, breastfeeding is still difficult for them. That, emotionally and psychologically they still struggle. Parenting a new baby is often overwhelming and I find that parents are forever worrying that they are doing the right thing. Sometimes a friendly ear and a chat through any feelings is enough, but I wanted to given more to the families I work with.
In 2017 I spent some time with Ray Dodd, a hypnobirthing Teacher and Breastfeeding Counsellor. Together we wrote an online course for expectant families in Mindful Breastfeeding. It’s a mixture of all the practical breastfeeding information you would from an antenatal class expect but with lots of mindfulness tools thrown in too. Since working alongside Ray I have been using these mindful techniques with my clients and they have been working like magic!
Now I want to share these techniques with you. I want to give other professionals the opportunity to enhance the breastfeeding support they already offer to families. I want you to see how working with families on their mindset when it comes to breastfeeding, is just as (I’d even go as far as to say, more…) important than the practical side of things.
