Date:  9th October (Mon)
Time:   6:30 - 8:00 pm
Location:   The Woodland Montessori Academy, Mid-Levels


We would like to invite you to a breastfeeding workshop conducted by Yvonne Heavyside, Lactation Consultant.

The session will cover advice on how to successfully breastfeed your baby and the importance of getting off to a good start. There will be a question and answer session at the conclusion of the talk. We will discuss ways to get off to a good start by immediate skin to skin contact and frequent undisturbed feeding as well as the following topics:


 •  Breasts - Does size matter?
 •  Implants, breast reduction, inverted nipples - How may they affect feeding?
 •  How milk is made and supply maintained
 •  Effective latching
 •  How to build up good supply
 •  Returning to work and breastfeeding
 •  Common problems and how to prevent them


Please sign up early as places are limited and first come first served.
