At a place where breastfeeding mothers can meet, these periods of conversation allow questions to be asked, discussions with other parents, a break from isolation and the possibility of learning about a variety of subjects regarding the perinatal period.
Consult the calendar to find the schedule of breastfeeding drop-in centres in your zone.
Facilitated by both a CLSC nurse and a Nourri-Source Laurentides breastfeeding coach, the prenatal breastfeeding workshop is the perfect opportunity to talk about breastfeeding with expectant mothers and to learn more about the subject before the baby’s birth.
Here are the subjects covered:
- History of breastfeeding
- Preparing to breastfeed
- Factors for success
- Breastfeeding physiology and anatomy
- Breastfeeding and healthy living
