Online Training: Prenatal Hand Expression of Colostrum

$ 60/ 30 Min

Colostrum is a thick, yellowish-white fluid that provides extra nutrients to a newborn, which can help a newborn to build the baby’s immune system and gut flora to protect against allergy and disease. Most women can start to collect this early breast milk at about 36-37 weeks gestation. This technique involves stimulating breast/chest tissues and expressing colostrum by hand in the final weeks of pregnancy. 

Some babies may need extra milk in the early days and colostrum is the preferred supplement for your baby.  These include babies with:

• Birth parent with diabetes or other complex medical conditions

• Babies with complex health conditions (e.g. cardiac complications, cleft lip, etc.)

• Prematurity or low birth weight

• Multiples (twins, triplets)

Mother and Newborn

Virtual Support for Latch Training on Day 1

$ 120/ 60 Min

 Breastfeeding is a teamwork. When there are breastfeeding difficulties, we will treat both the mother and the baby. Bodywork for a breastfeeding mother can open up energy channels, aiding milk production and flow. It also helps minimize discomfort, pain, and soreness in the breasts. Some babies may have muscle and soft tissue tensions or restrictions in the body. By applying gentle hands-on treatment can result a positive effect on the latch and breastfeeding difficulties. The baby's latch is the foundation of breastfeeding. It takes time for a newborn to learn and practice in a proper way. We strongly disagree with the use of nipple shields for a newborn's latch-learning process. This is not simply a lactation consultant service, Heng's hands-on care and support for the mother and the baby, are helpful for your successful breastfeeding journey. 

Heng's Method of Breastfeeding:

1. Ensure that your whole body is pain-free,

2. Hands-free breastfeeding positions,

3. Ensure your milk supply matches your baby's demand.

Online Training: 0-1 Month Newborn Latch

$ 120 / 60 Min

A good latch ensures that the baby is effectively transferring milk from the breast. This is essential for the baby's growth, weight gain and development. Commonly parents see an improvement in latching and in feeding immediately after the procedure and for that day and maybe the following day. If a baby had a tongue tie, then both mother and baby will have made adjustments to compensate for the issues this caused. So, after the tongue tie is released, they both need to re-learn feeding from the beginning. Book Now
