When we create life and journey through such a sacred life transformation, it can be overwhelming and can be very challenging at times particularly in the modern world we live in when there are many demands at one given time. Creating balance and being able to self nourish is extremely important in providing for our newborns. Breastfeeding is truly a magical gift but quite often it is not supported enough. Like Pregnancy, Birth and other big life experiences it affects the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well being of the Parent who is providing for their newborn. Breastfeeding is a life giving source and is something that should be respected and honoured more.
There are many myths and misconceptions about Breastfeeding and quite often we can receive the wrong messages, or be given the wrong information or even conflicting information. This can leave us feeling depleted, exhausted and sometimes traumatized.
I often say that planning for an Empowering Postpartum is as essential as planning for an Empowering Postpartum and that includes creating the breastfeeding plan you want. As a Mum who struggled on her breastfeeding journey I was inspired to learn more about myself and become a Breastfeeding professional through the Newborn Mothers Collective where I learned invaluable tools and information that made me feel empowered about this magical gift. My goal is to support mothers and parents on their journeys as they learn about themselves and find what works for them. I believe in individuality and that what works for one parent will not necessarily work for another.
If you are looking for support in breastfeeding and want to boost your confidence and personal power please view what my services includes for supporting breastfeeding Parents.
In person or Online Workshops and Empowerment planning sessions are available and these can be tailored to your needs. We can include other elements from my Birth
Preparation workshops alongside further Postpartum Support. An initial session would be around 90 mins to 2 hours. I also offer in home visits which can be added to my Postpartum Doula support packages or my Empowerment planning sessions with a 6 week guide and plan with weekly check ins and support beyond breastfeeding.
