On Raising Awareness/Breastfeeding 303 class at Medela House

Just wanted to write a quick post about one of my previous entries. It was only published today, but I've already gotten several heartwarming and encouraging texts or calls from fellow mommies and mommies-to-be. Apparently, I've touched on a subject that is near and dear to the hearts of fellow moms, especially those who have gone through the same experience that I did.

Part of the reason why I am so reluctant to use the magic words "legal action" is because I understand that a big part of the reason why I can't have Little C with me right away is hospital policy. I also understand that milk companies have a lot of pull in the medical industry, which is why it's so hard to make headway when it comes to asserting our rights as moms to breastfeed our babies.

I wrote about my experience because I want to raise awareness for mommies of how things can go once you're in the hospital. I do understand that realistically, my birth plan may not happen. But I've learned that knowing how things won't go my way in the delivery room will help me make contingency plans to ensure that my breastfeeding relationship with Little C will go as smoothly as possible. Part of this is to educate myself as much as possible on how to deal with nursing Little C even with the possibility that we won't be together in the time frame that I'm expecting.

And in the interest of educating myself, and for other moms to educate themselves, I'd like to invite all of you to attend the Breastfeeding 303 class at the Medela House, which is happening this Saturday, March 3, 2012. It's from 9:00 - 11:00 am. As per the Medela Moms FB Page the topic for that session is Breastfeeding and Beyond, and it covers the "ins and outs of breastfeeding a toddler, weaning, attachment parenting, first foods, special cases (cupfeeding and relactation) and playgroups, among other interesting topics for couples planning on long-term breastfeeding. Speaker is PGH-certified lactation counselor Abbie Yabot." You can register by emailing or texting your name and contact details to 0917-5614366.

Medela Moms will also be hosting a babywearing and breastfeeding tips event on April 28. More details to follow as soon as I have them. Looking forward to meeting more fellow mommies!
