Returning to Work Planning

Preparing to return to the workplace can feel stressful. In this class we acknowledge the various feelings nursing parents may have as they get ready to return to the workplace. This allows for self-care as you and your family move through this transition. Learn what to say to your employer and child’s caregiver, create a plan that feeds your baby, and protects your breastfeeding relationship. Knowing what you and your baby need, and how to plan reduces stress and worry and makes for a smoother adjustment.
