Breastfeeding service launched

The Baby Academy is delighted to announce the launch of breastfeeding services to its UK users. From December 2020, expectant parents across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will be able to avail of two online services:

  • Online ‘Prepare to Breastfeed’ Workshop
  • The Ultimate Online Breastfeeding Class

These services will be rolled out to expectant parents in Ireland, USA, Canada and South Africa in early 2021.

Although breastfeeding is natural, it doesn’t always come naturally and is a learned skill. These services will aid parents get set for breastfeeding success and ensure they know how to troubleshoot challenges which may arise. The expert content is delivered by our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs), who will deliver the tools and strategy for a successful breastfeeding journey.

As well as having a magnitude of health benefits for mothers, such as reducing the rosh of ovarian cancer, breastfed babies are also shown to have lower levels of common childhood infections such as respiratory infections, otitis media and gastroenteritis.

Through a focus on outstanding education and support, The Baby Academy is on a mission to aid those wishing to breastfeed, leading to improved health and development for both mums and babies globally.
