The Complete Breastfeeding Blueprint
This program was created to provide expecting parents with the information they need to begin their parenthood journey with confidence while having their home baby-ready and their supports available to play their role.
This approach works in conjunction with individualized naturopathic and lactation care to support you from your 3rd trimester to your first months of being a mom. You'll begin the course online in conjunction with individualized naturopathic support so that you can have all your questions answered, feel ready for the birth and to start breastfeeding with ease.
Once the baby arrives, you can use the online resource to follow the tangible recommendations for breastfeeding success and also have individualized naturopathic and lactation support.
Throughout the journey, you will have access to weekly group naturopathic support held virtually. By joining other mothers and getting your postnatal and lactation questions answered, you will find connection and community from day one.
Learn from an experienced health professional, giving you confidence going into your birth and tangible steps to start your breastfeeding journey with ease.
Ongoing virtual or in-person support that is a must-have for all new moms.
Meaningful worksheets to create your own birth and postnatal experience as well as helpful guides to take you through the transition into motherhood.
Hi! My name is Melanie Jacobson, ND IBCLC
Professionally I am a naturopathic doctor, lactation consultant and the creator of the Complete Breastfeeding Blueprint. Personally, I am a wife and mother of 2 amazing girls. It was my difficult and emotional journey into motherhood which has led me down this professional path. I was a new mom, going through all the new mom adjustments and I was completely unprepared. This online education plus individualized care approach will make sure that your path into parenthood is different than mine. You will feel prepared, know exactly what to do and what to expect once your baby arrives and have the ongoing guidance of a health professional who is passionate about supporting new moms.
This approach offers comprehensive knowledge, and support
in 3 important areas:
- Postnatal planning
- Getting your home baby-ready
- Techniques to promote calm and relaxation for your entire journey
- Understand how to nourish yourself in pregnancy and planning for your postnatal nutrition
- Appreciate how your body is changing in the final weeks of pregnancy
- Knowledge of the stages of birth
- Comfort measures for labour
- Understanding how the birth affects breastfeeding
- Feel ready with the knowledge of what to expect and what to do in the early days after your baby is born
- Understand how breastfeeding works and know what to do in the first critical days after birth to initiate breastfeeding as smoothly as possible
- Infant sleep and feeding
- Moods in the postpartum period
- Ongoing support throughout your transition to motherhood
The best time to begin working with me is in your third trimester.
Joining a community of expecting and new parents, to ask your questions and share ideas, is also of huge value.
I will be available live on a weekly basis to answer your questions and support you through your journey. And who knows, you might even meet a friend to experience your new parent moments together.
