In September, the kids head back to school and you’ll be ready to do some learning of your own! GOLD Learning is excited to bring you “Full-Term Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding: Benefits, Considerations, and Ways to Offer Support,” a brand new FREE webinar with Joy MacTavish, IBCLC, RLC, MA.

Joy will cover the considerations of full-term nursing including an overview of developmental stages for a breastfeeding/chestfeeding child, changes in milk composition, and psychobiological benefits to both the child and parent. Attendees will be able to identify challenges that full-term breastfeeding/chestfeeding families may face and will learn strategies to support full-term feeding. Whether you have been supporting full-term nursing for years, or this is an area that you'd like to learn more about, you're sure to leave this presentation with insights and strategies that you can apply in supporting full-term nursing families.
