Each family has different needs and wants when it comes to feeding their baby.  There are many factors to consider when making this decision, which can make it a difficult one.  In this course you will learn typical feeding behaviors of a newborn, feeding positions, proper latch, how to use a pump, proper storage, as well as trouble shooting, bottle feeding techniques and so much more.

Your Postpartum and Lactation Educator

I am a CPD (certified postpartum doula) and LE (lactation educator) with years of experience supporting families during their postpartum journey.  Additionally, I am a mom to two busy boys, now 7 and 11 years old.  I had vastly different lactation and postpartum experiences with them both, so know very well how each and every family and baby are different, requiring their own unique care and attention.  My experiences, and natural want to support and care for others, drove my passion to help create better outcomes for more families.  Teaching classes does just that as I only have so much time to provide postpartum doula support.

These courses lay the foundation for the postpartum experience you want and desire for your family.  Preparation and knowledge lead to better outcomes.  Knowing when and who to reach out to for professional support provides you with reassurance.  Are you and/or your partner heading back to work and want to know how to best prepare?  Want to know the best way to introduce your new baby to siblings/pets?  Interested in learning different activities to do with your newborn?  There is so much that encompasses the postpartum period and I cannot wait to help you achieve the experience you are striving for.  We will spend some time addressing whatever questions you have at the time.  When joining my class you will learn the many benefits my education and experience can bring to you during such a transitional time.

"Colleen helped me prepare for what breastfeeding was going to entail (beforehand) and was there for us when we got home from the hospital to make sure everything was going well.  She follows up immediately on anything and is so knowledgeable and patient, can't thank her enough."

"She (Colleen) played a key role in my hard but successful journey to exclusive breastfeeding with her lactation services.  I could immediately tell Colleen is passionate about her work and truly enjoys helping families."
