Most mothers agree that breastfeeding can often be challenging, especially during the first weeks and months. Having access to expert support is particularly beneficial and enables mothers to meet their goals. This weekly group is for both, first and second-time mothers and their babies, aged 0-6 months, with a focus on breastfeeding.
The group is led by Jaudon Rogers, MS, RN, IBCLC, CCE. Jaudon is a Board Certified Lactation Consultant and maternal-child RN. She has many years of experience working with mothers and their babies in a variety of settings. The group will meet weekly for 5 weeks. Each week Jaudon will address your breastfeeding challenges and provide guidance. You will be able to do pre- and post-feeding weights to assess milk intake. Jaudon will also have a loose topic for the group to discuss each week.
Some topics include:
• Pumping-how, when, and why
• Clogged ducts and mastitis
• Building a freezer stash
• Growth spurts and weight gain
• Sleep patterns
• Introducing bottles and pacifiers
• How to prepare for returning to work
• Distracted nurslings
• Nursing strikes
• Oral hygiene
• Starting solids
In addition, other topics relevant to the group will be discussed as they arise. This group will also provide new moms with the opportunity to form relationships with other breastfeeding mothers and bond over your shared experiences. To have weekly support from a breastfeeding expert, as well as from your peers, is invaluable. Please feel free to reach out to Jaudon at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
