About this course

One of the very best things we can do for our new person is to give them our time and care and breastfeed them. Unfortunately, breastfeeding is in trouble. Mothers often have a fear of not producing enough milk. Many are concerned their milk may have toxins that outweigh the benefits. And they also don’t know what to do when things don’t go as planned. The wisdom that has been past down through generations has faltered.

With falling rates of breastfeeding, you are in a perfect position to give new mothers clear, reliable support they need to be confident and prepared to give their baby the best start they can.

You will see below in the program outline that this 3-part short course covers all of the aspects we need to give sound advice.

Dawn Whitten is a highly experienced clinician, and qualified lactation consultant and very passionate advocate of natural breastfeeding. She has spent considerable time preparing this course for clinicians to enable us to confidently step in to support mothers to give their babies the healthiest start in life.
