"I met Amanda through a mutual friend when my son had issues with thrush. Since then I always go to her for any of my breastfeeding issues. Without her help I don't think I would have made it this far with breastfeeding. Not only has she been extremely reassuring during situations of doubt while feeding but she has become a person I feel I can truly trust and is reliable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any mother in need." Alyssa, Elgin County
"(Amanda) was very helpful answering my wife's detailed questions about breastfeeding. Thankfully, with Mindful Mothering's help the parenthood experience has been very positive and enjoyable for both me and my wife." Dr. L., London, ON

We help you set the stage for breastfeeding success. You will learn how to prepare for breastfeeding during pregnancy, how common childbirth and newborn care practices will interfere with or support your breastfeeding experience, and what your newborn will expect in the moments following birth. We will also learn what type of breastfeeding help you can expect from midwives, nurses, doulas & doctors, and where to turn for help when you have breastfeeding questions.
We will focus on postpartum wellness, getting breastfeeding off to a great start, early feeding cues, overcoming common difficulties, positioning and latch, and sleep and the breastfeeding family. You will also learn hands-on Baby Wearing techniques in a slinging workshop, where you will learn how to nurse your baby in a sling. The sling is our favourite mothering tool, especially if you have other children at home!
Cost is $120 for a private 3 hour class.
