Background on the course:

Latch and Attach was created to promote the physical, emotional, and mental health and wellbeing of babies, lactators, and their families.

Evidence reported in a systemic review has confirmed that peer counseling, lactation consultation and formal breastfeeding education during pregnancy have been found to increase duration [of breastfeeding]. So know by taking this course, you are much more likely to succeed with lactation.  [Lumbiganon P. Martis R, Laopaiboon M, Festin MR, HoJJ, Hakimi M. Antenatal breastfeeding education for increasing breastfeeding duration. Cochran Databse Ssyt Rev. 2012; 12(9):CD006425. [PubMed]

Initiation rates, and duration rates of breastfeeding and chestfeeding increase when parents prepare ahead of time for lactation: this comprehensive course gives you that preparation.

Parents seeking early breastfeeding education offer babies much benefit as there is nothing like being prepared ahead of time for when we will need the knowledge. This course is like a prenatal gift you are giving yourself and your baby because being educated ahead of need makes sense: in the moment of struggling with breastfeeding, baby crying, birthing parent crying, things not going well, that can be a harder time to start the education process. That’s when, if you have your support system already in place, you know who to reach out to and can get help sooner.

This course is to help expecting parents get off on the right foot–or breast if you wish–to find one’s way more smoothly on the lactation journey. With birth having such a significant impression on breastfeeding, there is a deep need for those expecting to not only plan for their birth, but plan it to include a positive initiation of breastfeeding: planning for the one day of birth is smart, planning for the months of lactation thereafter is brilliant!

To prepare for lactation is one of the most important initial acts we can do for our children, and planning for a gentle birth is the most judicious way we can set successful lactation in motion.
