Most mothers agree that breastfeeding can often be challenging, especially during the first weeks and months. Having access to expert support is particularly beneficial and enables mothers to meet their goals. This weekly group is for both, first and second-time mothers and their babies, with a focus on breastfeeding.
The group is led by Jaudon Rogers, MS, RN, IBCLC, CCE. Jaudon is a Board Certified Lactation Consultant and maternal-child RN. She has many years of experience working with mothers and their babies in a variety of settings. Jaudon is also the proud mother of 3 terrific children, who she credits for much of her passion.
The group will meet weekly for 5 weeks. Each week Jaudon will address your breastfeeding challenges and provide guidance. You will be able to do pre- and post-feeding weights to assess milk intake. Jaudon will also have a loose topic for the group to discuss each week.
Some topics include:
• Pumping-how, when, and why
• Clogged ducts and mastitis
• Building a freezer stash
• Growth spurts and weight gain
• Sleep patterns
• Introducing bottles and pacifiers
• How to prepare for returning to work
In addition, other topics relevant to the group will be discussed as they arise.
You will also be able to form relationships with other breastfeeding mothers and bond over your shared experiences. To be able to have weekly support from a breastfeeding expert, as well as from your peers, is invaluable. Please feel free to reach out to Jaudon for questions.
