Who is it for?

This course is: 
  • Perfect for new mothers who want to breastfeed.  
  • Great for parents who are unsure how to feed their baby and want to learn, and for those who want to make an informed decision about infant feeding.
  • Valuable for mothers who already have a baby and want to learn more about breastfeeding for this baby or have a refresher.
  • Excellent for your partner or closest supporter.

It is convenient. You can take this at your leisure, from your couch, and in the comfort of your home. If you are a busy pregnant person, you may not want another commitment on your calender. And if you like to take in information at your own pace, this Prenatal Breastfeeding Course is for you.

This course is not for you if you do not like online courses, though if you only cover some of the material, you will still benefit. 

Dodge being overwhelmed and disheartened. Be ready. Be confident.
