Learn how to support and encourage lactating parents in all types of family structures. What we know is when individuals feel supported by family and friends, they are more likely to breastfeed for longer periods. Individuals that do not have this support or confidence, feel overwhelmed and may give up on their original lactation goals. Families need time to adjust and figure out their new roles during the first few days of an infant’s birth. So, families and friends are helpful and supportive to a new parents, but good intentions are not enough. Family and friends may offer help or advice that may cause unexpected challenges for the new parent. We will explore helpful and unhelpful ways to support parents, so they feel confident in their ability to breastfeed.

 1. Describe what a support system looks like, feels like, and sounds like for a lactating parent.
