Training

The ABM offers a range of training options, from our short course for parents and families, to in-depth courses for mothers and professionals to enable them to support others with breastfeeding.

Team Baby: getting ready to breastfeed.

We know that breastfeeding is teamwork. It’s about knowing how breastfeeding works, knowing how newborns behave and knowing where to get help.

This course will ensure that you have a good knowledge of normal breastfeeding, and fill in any gaps you may have. As a Mother Supporter, you will offer support and encourage normal breastfeeding, not solve complicated breastfeeding problems.  We anticipate that the 14 lecture sections and two breastfeeding observations will need approximately 35 hours of study.  Plan to spend at least 3 hours per week on the course in order to stay on track for your deadline.  This includes using the resources within the lessons and completion of the quizzes.
