Why should I attend a Breastfeeding Class?

Attending a breastfeeding class especially by me, Gina Yong can provide numerous benefits for expectant or new parents. Here are some reasons why you should consider attending such a class:

  1. Expert guidance: I, Gina Yong, has more than 20 years of experience as a lactation consultant. I possess specialized knowledge and expertise in breastfeeding. Attending my class allows you to learn from my many years of experience and gain insights into the best practices, techniques, and tips for successful breastfeeding.

  2. Correct information: Breastfeeding is a natural process, but it can still be challenging and require proper knowledge and guidance. Attending a class ensures that you receive accurate and up-to-date information about breastfeeding, including latch techniques, positioning, milk supply, pumping, common challenges, and troubleshooting.

  3. Support and encouragement: A breastfeeding class provides a supportive environment where you can interact with other expectant or new parents who are going through similar experiences. You can share concerns, ask questions, and receive emotional support, which can be invaluable during the breastfeeding journey. Those who are DIAMOND Members would also have access to me via whatsapp text consultation for a period of 1 year or until baby's first birthday, whichever is later.

  4. Preparation and confidence: Attending a class helps you prepare for breastfeeding before your baby arrives. You can learn about the early signs of hunger, feeding cues, and how to establish a good milk supply, understanding infant jaundice, infant weight loss, crying and many more! This knowledge instills confidence and empowers you to make informed decisions regarding your breastfeeding goals.

  5. Problem-solving skills: Breastfeeding can present various challenges, such as sore nipples, engorgement, low milk supply, or latching difficulties. A breastfeeding class equips you with problem-solving skills and strategies to overcome these hurdles effectively. Learning about potential issues beforehand can help prevent problems or manage them promptly.

  6. Bonding with your baby: Breastfeeding is not just about providing nutrition; it also fosters a unique bond between you and your baby. Attending a class can help you understand the importance of skin-to-skin contact, the role of breastfeeding in promoting attachment, and the emotional benefits it offers for both you and your baby.

  7. Partner involvement: I often encourage partners to attend as well. It allows them to understand the breastfeeding process, provide support, and actively participate in caring for the baby. Partner involvement can strengthen the family unit and create a more supportive environment for breastfeeding.

Remember that each breastfeeding journey is unique, and attending a class can provide you with valuable knowledge, skills, and support to make your experience as positive and fulfilling as possible.
