Both first-time and experienced mothers will learn tips and tricks to make the transition to breastfeeding and parenting your new baby as smooth as possible. Practical advice given by experienced breastfeeding mothers makes these classes and cafes both popular and effective.
Breastfeeding information is offered as a component of both our 1 Day Prenatal Class, and our Fast Track Prenatal Class. We highly recommend attending the whole class as an investment in your future breastfeeding relationship. However, if you want to focus on just breastfeeding, we offer a Private Breastfeeding Class.
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!
Birth Partners are encouraged to attend. Cost is $120 per mother for a private 3 hour class.

Breastfeeding Just Got Easier!
Private Breastfeeding Help in home or hospital.
"Breastfeeding my baby was very important to me and I made that choice before he was born. After experiencing some troubles and concerns, I came in contact with Jodi and she was quick to visit me in the comfort of my home. She offered me the help I was looking for, answered all my questions and addressed the issues I was experiencing. I highly recommend Jodi, so glad to have found her and I will continue to recommend her services." Mother of two, Delhi
"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
