About

Australian research has shown that new mothers wish they had received more preparation for breastfeeding and the early months of parenting prior to the birth of their baby. Attending an ABA Breastfeeding Education Class complements the knowledge gathered at antenatal classes, and gives you the opportunity to:

* Learn some of the skills you will need to care for your new baby
* Realistically prepare for the changes about to happen in your life
* Discuss questions and concerns you may have about breastfeeding
* Develop a support network before giving birth

What is covered in a class?
* How breastfeeding works
* Establishing breastfeeding and the first feed
* Importance of skin-to-skin contact in the first hours and beyond
* Positioning and attachment (how to hold and attach your baby to the breast)
* Understanding your milk supply
* Discussion of what is 'normal' for a breastfed baby
* Role of partners in breastfeeding
* Adjusting to parenthood - survival tips for the early days and weeks with a new baby
* Common concerns and problem solving

Breastfeeding Education Classes cost $90 which includes 12 months of ABA membership, providing you with ongoing support and information on your breastfeeding journey.
