Join us for an informative and in depth introduction to the principles, techniques and latest research involved in the amazing world of lactation. Meet others working in the field of birth and postpartum support, share resources and insights, and deepen your understanding of how we can best support families in one of the most profound (and potentially challenging) gifts they can give themselves and their babies.

In this thorough 4 hour Breast, Chest & Bottle Feeding Class for Doulas, participants will learn:


  • Several lesser known health benefits of lactation
  • Anatomy and physiology of the lactating breast/chest
  • How to support new parents in navigating correct positioning and latch
  • Tips for guiding a partner in supporting the lactating parent
  • Laid Back Breast/Chestfeeding - why it works and how to elicit it
  • Common challenges and how to avoid or address them
  • Addressing milk production with placenta, herbs and foods
  • Alternatives to bottle feeding when a baby needs supplemental milk
  • How to support an ambivalent or poorly resourced lactating parent



PLEASE NOTE: We will meet for two short sessions on the same day - 10am-12pm and 2-4pm, with a break in between for lunch.  This class will meet virtually via Zoom, and I will send out the link in your confirmation email.



This class is designed to meet the requirements for DONA certification for Birth & Postpartum Doulas.


Cancellation policy

Please note that this is a small group event, and every member is valued.  If you discover that you are unable to attend for any reason, please contact me asap as this may affect the balance and timing of the series.  Refunds are available up to two weeks before we begin; once we are within that window fees are non-refundable (but may be transferable to a future class).  Exceptions may be made if I have to delay or change dates or in the case of a family emergency, but it is requested and much appreciated that each member track how the date of the series will work for you and to communicate with me promptly if issues arise.
