  Employed Mothers & Breastfeeding: Shortcuts to Success


It’s a fact: Breastfeeding mothers go back to work. It can seem overwhelming for them, as well as for us! We find ourselves addressing the legal, social and emotional aspects of the job and the workplace, as well as teaching how to express and store. All of that is important, but how can we help the mother to meet her breastfeeding goals? In this session, we’ll look at what makes going back to work different for breastfeeding continuation and weaning, the influence of the father and other factors that do or don’t affect breastfeeding continuation in these circumstances, and tips on bottle-feeding. The goal of this learning program is to help you give appropriate counseling to the breastfeeding mother who is going back to work.
