Overview of this Course:
The St. Anne Breastfeeding Course is designed for mothers and doulas to learn basics of breastfeeding. We award a certificate that you finished this course when done with the 5 module course.
We are offering it at a really low cost for our pilot program. If you are taking St. Gianna Course -- you can add it on for only $50 extra! If you are taking it alone it is $75. Doulas will be paying for the course with price increase in our doula course or they can opt-to pay separately.
The course is designed to take up to 5 weeks or longer to finish. (One week per module) Enroll Today!
We do offer self-pace, so if you are taking this course after you had your precious baby, then you can go at a slower rate! Mothers will have less work to do in each module; doulas will have to do all work unless stated specifically for a mother to work on. All participants will still receive the Breastfeeding Basics Certificate when finished!
We will be using Eliademy classroom for now-- however, if we change in future it might be through Blackboard. So, we leave the option of the word "Classroom" in the modules. You will receive an invite via email to get into the classroom.
Books required include:
Books for this course that are needed. You will need to purchase 2 books for this course.
1. Getting Started with Breastfeeding for Catholic Mothers by Gina Peterson
2. The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk by Diana West and Lisa Marasco
If any doula takes the postpartum course and goes through the B.L.O.O.M. portion where we use the Peterson book, you may skip assignments related to that book here then and still receive your certificate.
Mothers taking the course will need both books above unless you have been a La Leche League leader or something like that then we are willing to waive some requirements.
How much does it cost? Enrollment
The St. Anne Breastfeeding course costs only $50 if you are co-enrolled with St. Gianna Childbirth Prep. If you wish to take this course by itself, then it costs $75 to enroll in it. (This is for mothers only).
Doulas taking our birth doula course will be charged an extra $50 fee when enrolling in 2017 for this course. They may opt-out and pay the $75 later if so desired. However, all new enrollees will be required to take this course. *Note Fast-Track students may add on this course for the Combo Fast-Track or do another requirement for early 2017 (Winter-Spring students only).
