Weaning Workshop – October 6, 2019
October 6, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Weaning Workshop is a chance to come together in real life with other Marathon Mamas and have an experience with one another. And with me, too!
You have to come without your child. For three hours. Hooray!!
You will have the space and time to sit.
We will cry and eat chocolate and other yummy things. I will tell you what I remember from some of your bravest days, if I had the privilege of witnessing it.
You will decide what things matter most right now. You will make a plan to prioritize those things, including changing or ending breastfeeding.
It is my hope that you will leave this workshop a little more ready to let go of what is and make space for what’s next. And you’ll have your “what’s next steps” in hand.
Can’t make it live? Start the home study anytime!
The ideal time to take this course is around 6-12 months or later, when you are first starting to consider weaning. Or, whenever breastfeeding is beginning to become frustrating to you and you would like to make a change.
Workshops are for mamas only. Please leave your little ones at home so you can take the time needed to think, reflect and plan to reach your weaning goals.
Sundays 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
About Katie Madden, RN, BSN, IBCLC
I’m Katie Madden RN, BSN, IBCLC, Director of Lactation at The Birth Center, & founder of BalancedBreastfeeding.com
I teach new mothers to breastfeed with confidence so they can enjoy their nursing relationship without pain, exhaustion, or fear.
I have over ten years of experience helping women learn to be mothers through breastfeeding. It is my passion and my gift. I have a knack for making breastfeeding work and building a mother’s confidence.
I believe that breastfeeding is about balance. There is no one right or wrong way to breastfeed your baby. It is my job to help you meet your breastfeeding goals.
I have the privilege of providing private in-person consultations at The Birth Center in Wilmington, Delaware, where I also teach breastfeeding classes and lead a number of free breastfeeding support groups throughout the month. I was born and raised in Maryland but currently reside with my husband and 11-year-old daughter in Pennsylvania.
I was given the gift of breastfeeding my daughter Lucy for almost three years. This experience changed how I care for women and how I care for myself. It was life altering and powerful; everyone should have the opportunity to experience it. Read more about my personal journey.
Balanced Breastfeeding was born out of my desire to reach more women all over the world. The Internet is an overwhelming and often misleading place for a breastfeeding mother. Balanced Breastfeeding gives you a place to learn simple, implementable lessons about breastfeeding in a way that is not overwhelming, while also building a community with like-minded women, all under the guidance of a skilled, seasoned Board Certified Lactation Consultant—me!
