Breastfeeding made easy

breastfeeding class

Many antenatal classes advise you to sit upright when you start breastfeeding—but learning how to breastfeed ‘laid-back’ can make feeding much easier and more relaxing. In this breastfeeding class near Chalk Farm, Janet Balaskas shows you how.

It all begins in the first hour after birth. Using ‘laid-back’ feeding positions, you will learn how to activate your baby’s innate reflexes to find the breast and ‘self-attach’.

Many of the most common problems women experience with breastfeeding can be avoided with the information you will get in this breastfeeding class near Chalk Farm.

‘Laid Back’ Breastfeeding and the concept of Biological Nurturing was developed by Dr. Suzanne Colson – a consultant midwife. As a physiological approach to breastfeeding, it is a natural extension of the philosophy of Active Birth.

How to understand your baby

Breastfeeding is at the heart of your baby’s contentment. It offers both comfort and connection as well as the best possible nutrition.

  • breastfeeding classJanet will explain the primal needs of a newborn baby and give you insight into newborn behaviour, sleep and wake patterns and other practical tips that every new parent needs.

  • There will be practical exercises and short films to give you simple yet effective guidance as you prepare to meet your baby.
