ACBE's Breastfeeding Class is designed for aspiring doulas and healthcare professionals, and fulfills DONA International's in-person Breastfeeding Education requirement for birth doula certification.
As a participant in our Breastfeeding Class, you will learn how to help mothers and babies initiate breastfeeding as a doula/care provider. Class participants discuss the many benefits of breastfeeding for mothers and babies, as well as how to approach breastfeeding challenges with new mothers. By the end of the class, you will be able to describe the anatomy of the breast and identify birth practices that are either supportive or harmful to breastfeeding.
Each Breastfeeding Class meets the 3-hour Breastfeeding Education requirement for DONA birth doula certification and is approved by DONA International for 3.0 CEUs.
