Have you have ever…
…felt as if a new parent wasn't listening or even trying to sabotage your good efforts?
…suspected something is off or wrong because you can't get through to the person in front of you?

While the postpartum period is a vulnerable time for all new parents, parents with a trauma history and / or living in toxic stress can be especially challenging. The good news is that breastfeeding professionals and peer support advocates are in an optimal position to be effective and confident with these parents. Participants will learn why and how something as common as a trauma history can disrupt their good work.We will discuss trust-building practices, common mistakes to avoid and how to be effective with even the most "high needs" people. This is the practical, skills-building session that you're looking for.
