TEll ME EVERYTHING
What should I know about breastfeeding + COVID-19?
Can I take this online course instead of the breastfeeding class at the hospital?
Yes! Simply Breastfeeding is a comprehensive course that covers everything you need to know to get started with breastfeeding along with visual demonstrations so you'll know you're doing it right.
Won’t help from the hospital nurse or midwife be enough to help me breastfeed?
Even under normal circumstances, nurses aren’t trained adequately about breastfeeding and can even give incorrect advice and create unrealistic expectations that lead to breastfeeding problems in the future. Even if you are fortunate enough to get good help, you will be sent home before many of the potential difficulties occur.
That’s precisely why we created this course. While most parents prepare for the delivery, very few prepare at the same lengths for feeding their babies. With proper training and dozens of videos of real moms breastfeeding at your fingertips, you’ll be fully prepared to overcome any challenges you might face. Knowledge is power, mama!
Couldn't I just read a book instead?
There are lots of good books about breastfeeding. What they lack, though, are video tutorials and demonstrations of moms breastfeeding correctly. In my three decades of experience, it’s these visuals that make all the difference in successfully equipping moms to breastfeed.
Should my spouse or partner watch the course with me?
Yes, yes, yes!! Partners often feel helpless when moms struggle to breastfeed their babies. By sharing this knowledge with them, they feel empowered to help. And, frankly, they often have a better angle to see what’s gone awry. We encourage couples to treat this course just as they treat a birthing course: It’s absolutely essential.
What if I’ve already had my baby? Is it too late for this course?
Absolutely not! You will find tremendous value in the content covered throughout the program, even if your baby has already been born. Often it is the lack of knowledge about the most basic facts that will steer you off course unnecessarily.
