Go Pro Pumping: back to work or just for fun

 

During this workshop, we’ll cover everything you need to know for going back to work (or if you’re pumping for other reasons, you are also more than welcome to attend!).

Logistics around finding a place to pump at the office, working with your childcare providers about how much to give, storage, bottle-feeding and what to do with extra milk. The law and your employer. Pumping on the go. Making pump with more pleasure, more yield and less time while away from your baby. Breast massage and hand expression. Changing feeding and sleep patterns after going back to work. Which pump, which phlanges, cleaning everything. Storing milk. Power pumping. What to do when there seems to be less milk from pumping. What is normal? Addressing problems and concerns. When to ask for help. Bring your questions and feel free to bring your pump, too

We'll have lots of different pumps here for you to look at and play with the buttons (with a pretend breast to see how differently one behaves from the other).

Led by International Board Certified Lactation Consultant Jeanette Mesite Frem, this class will offer you valuable tips, demonstrations and information to help get your milk supply boosted.  You'll go home with strategies, a just-for-participants webpage full of handouts and resources, and a new confidence and energy to "go pro" when it comes to pumping! 

This is a 2.5-hour class. 

Partners, grandmothers and non-crawling babies are all welcome.

Class fee: $60.00.  Note that some health insurances will reimburse you for this class, so you will receive a special receipt to submit to your insurance. No guarantees, but it's worth a try.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Advance registration required so we know a minimum number of participants to run the class (5) are coming, but once class is confirmed, drop-ins are welcome (and can pay via check, cash or credit card at the class).  Text Jeanette at 617-686-0052 the night before or day of to find out if there's space for you if you haven't registered in advance.  That being said, it's best to pre-register AND find a friend to register with you!
