Breastfeeding Support Specialist Training Course

Help new moms provide quality care for baby by helping them with one of the most challenging and rewarding responsibilities, feeding baby.  Many families admit that they would continue breastfeeding longer if they had the support to ensure baby is latching properly and was getting enough.  If mom doesn't have serious complications, a Newborn Care Professional trained and experienced in Breastfeeding support, can offer much needed support, assistance and reassurance. 

Many families hiring doulas and newborn care specialists, request someone with breastfeeding experience.  If you haven't received foundational Newborn Care Specialist Training, we recommend you consider enrolling in this course first which goes into all the areas of professional newborn care including Breastfeeding Support.  If you already have newborn care training and would like to continue your education, this course may be right for you, to further your skills, credentials and confidence in supporting new moms.
