Breastfeeding is not something you might expect to do your research on while pregnant, but there is certainly a lot of value in preparing yourself as much as you can while you have the time and space to do so. When your little one arrives you’ll thank yourself for being prepped as much as you can.
I’ve been asked loads to do a podcast on breastfeeding and I’ve resisted because I wanted to stay focused on the birth prep, but I’m getting way too many requests to ignore it – so here we are!
Today I’m speaking to Cindy Leclerc. Cindy is a Canadian Registered Nurse and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She has helped over 12,000 families get started with breastfeeding. In addition to her nursing practice, she teaches prenatal breastfeeding classes both in-person and online. Together with a colleague, she hosts a website (cindyandjana.com) and an app (NuuNest) which provide reliable information to answer the questions new parents ask. NuuNest can be downloaded for free on their website.
During our chat Cindy shares the 5 things that every pregnant woman should know about breastfeeding.
But we don’t stop there! We also talk about
- breastfeeding positions
- growth spurts
- what to expect the days after birth in terms of milk
- how to know if your baby has fed enough – and it’s not to do with time spent on the boob!
During our chat, Cindy talks about her free breastfeeding course as well one of which is free. Check them out below.
