August is shaping up to be an amazing month for a
celebration of breastfeeding in Arizona…culminating with the La Leche League of
Arizona’s Area Conference from August 26-28, 2016.
I am honored that I was invited to submit an abstract, and then
selected, as conference presenter. My
talk will be on Saturday, August 27 at 8:30 am. It may be early…but it will be worth it!! Of
course, I can’t “teach” without offering a snack, so besides coming for the tea
and the yummy breakfast snacks, come chat with me about three topics near and
dear to my heart.
My morning session is from 8:30 am – 10:00 am. Here is how we are going to spend our time
For each childbirth
preparation class, I will share a little about the core principles of the
series, and I will also offer you an opportunity to experience a portion of
what you would learn in a full series.
8:30 – 9:00
Exploring the Birthing From Within approach to
the childbirth journey
mission is to inspire and teach parents and those who support them, by honoring
the power of birth as a Rite of Passage.”
9:00 – 9:30
Exploring The Bradley Method®
is our belief that most women can be taught to give birth naturally with proper
education, preparation, and the help of a loving and supportive coach. The
Bradley Method encourages mothers to trust their bodies using natural
breathing, relaxation, nutrition, exercise, and education.”
9:30 – 10:00
Taking Care of Mom and Making Milk for Baby
even if the plan changes
Thanks to the support of my amazing family, I get out and
spread the word about childbirth education several times a year. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard,
“I wanted a natural birth, but…” Or, “I tried for a natural birth, but…”
Newsflash: however it happened, YOU GREW AND
BIRTHED A HUMAN BEING!!!
That in and of itself is incredible.
During our last half-hour together, we’ll take a look at
some of the things to consider if your birth plan twists and turns to help you
preserve the breastfeeding relationship, and what you can take away from every
birth experience, even if you think that you “failed”. We will leave some time to talk about this
perception of “succeeding” or “failing” at birth. You might be surprised at what you might discover
about the birth journey that prepared you to be the mother that you are today.
I hope to see you at the conference for the whole weekend,
and of course I would be honored if you choose to spend some time with me on
If you can RSVP and help me get a better idea of a head
count, I would be very grateful. As a
thank you for your help, I will bring you a special gift…so call or text me
today and let me know if I should save a seat for you!
