Calling all postpartum professionals
...ready to feel confident when it comes to supporting your clients breastfeeding journeys
...Wanting up to date information and skills
...Keen to set yourself apart as a knowledgable professional
I HEAR YOU AND LET ME TELL YOU THIS: YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THIS!
I am passionate about accessible and timely breastfeeding support, as a midwife, IBCLC and breastfeeding mother, that’s a given. However, I’m also enormously passionate about the provision of education and supporting colleagues working in the postpartum space. Breastfeeding education and training shouldn’t be reserved for those who want to specialise in this area. I truly believe that everyone who comes in contact with new parents should have the skills and knowledge required to provide basic breastfeeding support.
Did you know that women often don’t seek out professional breastfeeding support from people like myself until they have exhausted all other options? The reality is, is that they see their midwife, obstetrician, doula, child health nurse or allied health professional! They see YOU. Imagine if you could be a place of knowledgable reassurance, or confidently advocate and refer on to professional support sooner rather than later because you KNOW that it’s needed? I’m here to help make this a reality.

THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT BUT…
Who is this suitable for?
Every single professional who comes in contact with women who are breastfeeding a child. Breastfeeding education and knowledge should not be reserved exclusively for IBCLC’s. This program can be taken by midwives, doula’s, child health nurses, medical professionals, childbirth educators, allied health professionals and anyone else passionate about building and consolidating their knowledge and skills to provide THE BEST support to women.
This program is not suitable for those who want intensive knowledge on how to manage clinical breastfeeding issues that are within the scope of practice for IBCLC’s and registered health professionals. Individuals seeking this kind of knowledge would be better suited to enrolling in a program targeted towards those working towards IBCLC status (even if that is not the end goal).
Applications for program access for student midwives are open. This offers a 40% discount eligible on all payment options for approved students for a period of 28 days (excludes program + resources package). An application form and submission details can be accessed here. Currently, this offer is only valid for student midwives due to their unique position and clinical role in providing early breastfeeding support.
Can I use this for continuing professional development?
Yes! At the completion of the course you can obtain a certificate of completion. This is a comprehensive way to contribute to your professional development after completing your initial qualification or while you are still a student in your field. The program presents 12 hours worth of professional development hours.
The program has been endorsed by:
-Australian College of Midwives for 12 CPD points
–Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine for PDP educational hours 10, performance review 2, MOPS 2 obstetrics and gynaecology

What is different about this program?
You can find other breastfeeding programs created by other professionals who do not have the same qualifications, experience and skills behind them. Why complete a course form someone who is not the expert in their field?
You can also find courses that are directed towards those who want to become IBCLC’s, but these are significantly more expensive and not relevant to the practice many postpartum workers.
