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 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/22972092/]

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.

While true 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 can be taken at any time postnatally as well and be hugely beneficial.  This course offers a support system, comprehensive resource, and helps you know who to reach out to so you can get help sooner.

This course is to help expecting and new parents get off on the right foot–or breast if you wish–to find one’s way more smoothly on the lactation journey. For those still expecting, with birth having such a significant impression on breastfeeding, it is helpful to plan a birth that has a positive initiation of breastfeeding.
