All Things Lactation: Non-Traditional Infant Feeding Relationships

When: Sunday, May 24th at 1pm EDT

Where: Online! (a digital workshop)

Myth-buster: Lots of people - regardless of gender, anatomy, or hormones - can make milk for their babies! That's right, nursing is not just for ciswomen, and you don't have to birth a baby to do it. Nursing has so much to offer babies in terms of connection, nutrition and immune protection. Come and learn all about what makes human milk so incredible, and what's involved with making sure your baby gets some. We'll talk about induced lactation, co-nursing (when more than one parent wants to nurse), and nursing after top surgery, as well as covering lactation basics. Come with lots of questions!
