New First 100 Hours Masterclass

Enroll in the Masterclass today and get started!  

This course prepares you to approach early lactation care in an organized, focused way.

A step-by-step plan to help you as a provider to feel organized and confident that you have met the needs of the new family during this brief but brilliant time of their lives.

The hours and days after a baby’s birth can feel overwhelming both to the parent and those caring for them. Tasks, questions, concerns - what matters most and what will have the biggest impact on the baby’s health?

The First 100 Hours Masterclass trains you to provide organized, effective lactation care during the first 100 hours of a baby's life - even for preterm and late preterm babies!

Let’s grow our vision for early lactation care

When we are providing lactation care in the earliest days after birth, it can become complicated and challenging. This course reaffirms what is most important during the first 100 hours of a baby’s life, illuminating the critical actions and techniques that can set new parents up for success at meeting their own infant feeding goals while protecting the health of both parent and infant.  

"I was listening to your presentation while making face masks for family and friends and had to stop sewing as I was so interested in your material that I was making mistakes sewing. No fingers were lost or injured I might add. I learned and relearned so much... I have been doing lactation for over 40 years, practicing as an IBCLC for the last 10. You confirmed what I have saying for years, and I needed that as I was feeling perhaps I had been doing this too long and needed to leave it for the younger generation. Thank you so much for this learning experience." - April, USA

2020 reminded us how important it is to stay focused on public health.   This course will transform how you think about the first days after birth and remind you how critical they are to public health, and you'll finish with the confidence that you know exactly what every new parent needs to know before, during, and after the baby is born.

You can offer focused, intentional lactation care in a sensitive and effective way with the knowledge and skills you'll gain in this course. Whether you work in the prenatal space, the intrapartum period, or with postpartum families, you will have new tools and words to nourish and support them.

What People Are Saying:

Just to say THANK YOU! Super way of explaining stuff to parents and staff. Also, my term for skin-to-skin is "life support". The problems start when there is separation.

As a hospital-based IBCLC, I feel fortunate to have been exposed to The First 100 Hours in my formative lactation education. This program helps families, clinical staff, and lactation care providers recognize the needs of breastfeeding babies and families in the early days after delivery. In many ways, the most difficult aspect of hospital lactation care is guiding those around us to trust breastfeeding and trust the process. The First 100 Hours provides evidence-based information that can help providers and families recognize reasonable expectations for infant feeding, identify possible issues, and develop their confidence. In my experience, I have been most impressed at how effective The First 100 Hours is at teaching partners and extended families how to support the breastfed baby and breastfeeding parent. Families want what’s best for the new dyad, and teachings about what’s normal and what to expect in these first critical days can help a breastfeeding parent enjoy their new baby, establish their milk supply, and go home confident and supported in their new role. This program feels both so simple and intuitive while also being comprehensive. It is truly a gift to families and care providers alike.
