Transform your understanding about what breastfeeding/breastmilk really is:

• An irreplaceable relationship

• A brain developer

• An immune system

• An organ system

• A living tissue

Transform your professional skills

• Increase your doula competencies in the first hours after birth

• Hone your postpartum doula skills

• Learn unique strategies for teaching breastfeeding to families

• Explore adult learning styles

• Enhance your communication skills

Transform yourself

• Take the leap to explore new ways to work with families

• Connect with other women who love working with moms and babies

• Open your mind about new concepts surrounding breastfeeding

• Take the first step to becoming certified as a lactation educator with CAPPA

Concepts covered over the three days include: Lactation Professionals, History of Breastfeeding, Group Process, Learning Styles, Anatomy and Physiology of Breastfeeding, The Importance of Breastmilk and Breastfeeding, Prenatal Support and Breastfeeding issues, Birth's Impact on Breastfeeding, the Hospital Experience, Latch and the Breast Crawl, Skin To Skin, Signs of Successful Feeding, Maternal and Infant Challenges, Medications and Breastmilk, Fathers and Partners, and Curriculum Development.

The CAPPA CLE does not prescribe, treat, nor diagnose breastfeeding related conditions and is trained to refer clients facing circumstances that require this degree of intervention to a qualified professional. The CAPPA 20 Hour CLE course is not an IBCLC exam prep course, nor does the CAPPA CLE training prepare a student to become an IBCLC.
