Breastfeeeding Your Newborn

Are you an expecting mother or newly postpartum and wanting to have a smooth breastfeeding journey? 

While breastfeeding is natural, it doesn’t always come naturally. It is a learned art. At Omaha Birth & Babies, we know that mothers who feel informed and supported are more likely to have a successful breastfeeding experience. 

Start your breastfeeding journey off right with this in-depth class taught by Therese, an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), Certified Postpartum Doula  and NICU RN.

We chose to have our baby under the guiding care of a midwife and doula. Initially, we thought that since we were working with a midwife, we wouldn’t need a doula, but now, if someone told me I could only choose to have a midwife *or* a doula at my birth, I would choose my doula. She was completely hands-on during my labor helping me with the physical task of bringing baby into the world, but she also respected my ability to listen to my body’s own cues. She let me lead my process and stepped in with suggestions and reminders when necessary.

I used (Andrea) for my fourth child…but my first unmedicated birth. I knew somewhat what to expect from having other kiddos…but once in labor was oh so happy to have her there. She did a great job at supporting me to keep labor progressing, and at the same time listening to my concerns and supporting my voice with the medical staff.

She has been an amazing support—so knowledgeable about babies And breastfeeding, a personal cheerleader, a caretaker when I could barely manage basic survival, a shoulder to cry on , and, ultimately, she has become a true friend and part of our family.”
