Family Bonding Series (Part 3)
The First 7 Days: Infant Feeding
with Ashley Treadwell & Brave Birth Doulas
In this section of our Family Bonding Series, you’ll learn:
What to expect in the first seven days after birth
How to get breast/chest-feeding off to a good start
How to know if your baby is getting enough
When and how your milk will come in
Positioning for feeding
When to seek additional support
Curious about bottle feeding? Some families decide that breast/chest-feeding isn’t for them for one reason or another. We’d love to offer support around what it looks like to supplement with formula, dry up supply, etc. Please contact Ashley Treadwell at Cascadia Lactation for a feeding consult.
Ashley Treadwell is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and is skilled in assessing your baby for tethered oral tissue ("tongue and lip tie"), helping babies transition from bottle to breast/chest, pre-mature infants, low milk supply, painful breast/chest-feeding, and anxiety and insecurity surrounding breast/chest-feeding challenges.
The cost for this class is $25. It is open to Brave Birth families as well as the community. If you have hired a Brave Birth Doula for support you are entitled to two complimentary classes in this series. Payment is due with check/cash to the instructor the evening of the class.
