"A course for those experienced with newborns, RN's, LVN's, LC's, CLE's, Doulas &
Infant Care Specialists who have been working with newborns
for a while and want to learn the baby's perspective."

Why this course?

A nurse, LC or a doula is a caregiver who mothers the mother so that the mother can mother her infant. Doulas learn well how to care for the mother. But do the baby's needs conflict with the mother's needs? Are you hired by parents who tell you what they want, yet this is their first experience so they haven't a clue what they will really want or need? How do you deal with bad advice the mother often hears from others? Perhaps you are hired as an Infant Care Specialist and see the mother so busy during the day she is too tired to breastfeed the baby at night? Or a lactation consultant trying to help the baby to breastfeed only to hear the parents want to put the baby on a schedule? Be armed with the knowledge to help parents see the Baby's Perspective.

Take the Course on Your Time!
