Breastfeeding doesn’t come naturally for every mom. The GoldiLacts Breastfeeding Prep Workshop is the “creme de la milk” of preparation courses. Our goal during this three-hour workshop is to give each new set of parents get a comprehensive look at what actually goes into the act of breastfeeding. We cover things like the anatomy of the breast, things that your doctor forgets to tell you about breastfeeding, how Dads and partners can participate in the breastfeeding relationship, all the way through nursing an active toddler. We go far beyond the typical breastfeeding class you might find in a large group hospital setting. We create a small, safe, and comfortable environment where we allow parents to ask any question they might have about the breastfeeding process and how it will effect their lives with a new baby. We want you to feel equipped with vital research-based information and feeling empowered in your decision to breastfeed your baby as long as you feel comfortable doing so!

Each participant will receive a GoldiLacts Breastfeeding Prep and Support Reference packet as well a coupon for $25 off their first lactation consultation! 

This is a family affair! Significant others or birthing partners are encouraged to attend!

   Childbirth & Breastfeeding Prep Retreat

Date: April 20th – 22nd  Time: Friday 6:30-9:30pm / Sat 10:30-4:30 / Sun 10:30-4:30

Cost: $599 per couple   Location: Lake Balboa, Ca.

You’re invited to an exclusive three-day weekend retreat! Come spend a fun and easy-going weekend with us as we grow together to better prepare you for your labor, birth, parenting, and breastfeeding! Enjoy engaging activities, goodies, storytelling, teaching, and support! We want to join you on this important journey and build your confidence by setting a strong foundation of knowledge from experts you can trust.

The Childbirth Education portion of the weekend is taught by Board Certified Labor & Delivery nurse, Birth Doula, and Certified Childbirth Educator Sarah Lavonne. She brings a humorous, easy-to-understand, and lighthearted energy while covering pregnancy changes, how to prepare for labor, stages of labor (what to expect), comfort measures and coping with labor pain, breathing techniques, supporting your partner, when to go to the hospital, what to take, and what to expect at the hospital. She will also discuss medical interventions that could arise including epidurals, birth, what happens after the baby is born, changes to expect during the postpartum period, and…wait for it…sex after baby! No topic or question is off limits.

This amazing weekend concludes with our GoldiLacts Breastfeeding Prep 101 class where we will talk about the importance of the “golden hour” immediately following the delivery of your baby and the extremely high nutritional value that breastmilk has for your newborn. We will discuss the anatomy of the breast, nipple care for the new Mama Bear, partner involvement in the breastfeeding relationship, protecting your milk supply, pumping, breastfeeding in public, and more! This is a time for you and your birth partner to get every question answered, be empowered by information, and leave feeling confident and ready for your baby’s birth!

The cost of this retreat is $599 per couple. Classes can be purchased separately – Childbirth Education is $499.00 and Breastfeeding Prep 101 is $150.00 per couple. Please call (805) 835-2777 or email info@goldilacts.com to register. Please click here to read the GoldiLacts Cancellation Policy.
