What’s Next? Set realistic goals for the second half of your breastfeeding relationship.

A 90-minute workshop to get clear on your breastfeeding goals from 6-12 months.

You’ve achieved 6 months or more of breastfeeding! Way to go mama!! You have accomplished what fewer than 50% of mothers who started breastfeeding are able to achieve. That is not a small or easy feat as you know. I hope you are damn proud of yourself.

So what’s next?

Many moms say 12 months! That’s an excellent next long-term goal, but you are going to need some short-term goals in the meantime.

For example: do you plan on being done breastfeeding entirely on day 365 of this child’s life?  If so, you will need to start preparing for that around 9-10 months. Are you simply sick of the pump but you aren’t quite ready to stop direct nursing at 12 months? You can do that!

This 90-minute workshop will give you the opportunity to explore your options as you enter into the second half of breastfeeding. You will leave with a customized plan for yourself and your unique breastfeeding relationship and the confidence that you have concrete steps in place to achieve your next breastfeeding goal.

Of course, as with every Balanced Breastfeeding course, you will get an opportunity to look at yourself as a mother and a woman to discover what YOU need in your life as well. After all, you are so important, mama. You must take care of you.

Bring your baby along or leave her at home. Whichever makes more sense for you.

When:

Fridays at 4:30 pm

Cost:

$45

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!
