Dates and Locations
The new Douglas College 20 Hour Breastfeeding Course covers Breastfeeding Foundational concepts for those students who wish to increase their knowledge regarding the basics of lactation. This course will be useful for those students wishing to work and support breastfeeding families throughout their feeding trajectory. This introductory course covers the required minimum 20-hours of lactation education as suggested by the World Health Organization (WHO) and provides participants with the skills needed to help to breastfeed families achieve their feeding goals.
This information-packed and comprehensive three-day face-to-face course covers the latest evidence-based breastfeeding information and replaces our previous Douglas College 18 Hour Breastfeeding Course. At the end of the course, students will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Douglas College’s Continuing Education Department. Finally, this course is heavily based on the Baby Friendly Initiative and uses a Family-Centered Care Approach as well as a Trauma-Informed lens throughout the course’s modules.
