Parents often prepare their whole pregnancies for birth that lasts about a day, this course is about preparing for breastfeeding that lasts for many months thereafter. While Preparing for Birth is Smart, Preparing for Breastfeeding is Brilliant!

If you can only do one thing to prepare yourself ahead, or to learn how to breastfeed after baby arrives, taking this course is that one thing.

Why? What makes it unique?

Course instructor Laura Meikle has counselled parents on breastfeeding starting in the mid 90’s. With a pre-med education, and working as a Health Care Practitioner since 2003, she is a retired La Leche League Canada Leader who has helped people just like you learn how to successfully breastfeed. As an experienced grandmother, and mother of 3, she has many years breastfeeding experience since 1994 and knows what stands the test of time. Laura has a science-based approach mixed with practical experience. She shares gems on how to approach birth empowered, and combines her extensive education in human anatomy and physiology, as well as knowledge of body/mind connections to offer you a more encompassing education. Some call her a Lactation Expert—she prefers Lactation Facilitator, or Birth and Breastfeeding Educator. She brings you evidence-based material, and enriching resources to teach you the essentials! Unique to this course is the concise birth planning portion which will propel you toward breastfeeding success—that’s right, birth has an impact on breastfeeding!

The course draws extensively from leading world experts and their organizations who have given special permission for their over 60 years of proven methods to be used here, as well as pro educators and best selling authors allowing you access to their expertise through excerpts from their publications, making this course unparalleled in other education classes!

This resource gives you the ongoing support that makes all the difference in your success!

Equip yourself with the knowledge you need in time for when you need it, prevent pain and prevent baby cries!—that’s correct, studies have shown babies whose parents have prepared ahead, cry less.

Why is this?: A parent can then recognize sooner and respond prompter to what baby’s needs are, so investing in prenatal education impacts baby’s amount of crying.
