Making More Milk Book Group

Join our virtual Making More Milk book group! Engage with like-minded breastfeeding enthusiasts!

Do you want to unlock the secrets of Making More Milk? Barbara D. Robertson will be joined by Lisa Marasco, one of the authors of the book, to break this down for you. Having a structured format tends to move things from the "oh I should do that" to DONE!

For this group we will be using Zoom Meeting. and Thinkific, an online learning platform. August 1, 2020, or if you register later, when you register, you will get an invitation to join us on Thinkific, an easy to use, online learning program. You will see the required reading listed for each of our seven sections and meetings. Once a month we will have an optional live 1.5 hour Zoom meetings where questions will be asked and answered. You will need to get your own copy of Making More Milk, Second Edition by Lisa Marasco and Diana West. The old edition from 2010 will not do! So much has changed in the past 10 years. This is completely self guided. You will read the assigned chapters, listen to our recording meeting discussion with Q and A, review any supplemental materials, and then, if you registered for our 21 CERPs version, take the quiz at the end of each session.  This group is for professionals and families! All you need is to be a person who wants to know more about milk supply!

21 L-CERPs $99           No CERPs $45

 

Do you struggle with:

  • Discerning whether someone actually has a breastmilk supply issue?
  • Understanding where to start when exploring milk supply issues?
  • Knowing the best ways to help increase a breastmilk supply?
  • Sharing information about which herbs and foods might do what?
  • Identifying how much to supplement and when?

Rules of engagement for questions:
The Right - And Wrong - Way To Ask A Question

Remember that this book group is a group to expand general knowledge about how to help families make more breastmilk. This is not a time to give a specific scenario and get a plan of what to do for that family or yourself. We will answer one question per person and take as many questions as possible during our time together.

We’ve discovered that there are two ways to ask a question. The first way is to ask a question that relates to a concept, strategy or idea shared in the book group and frame it in a way where the answer can benefit the entire group. This method gets two thumbs up and wild cheers from everyone.

The other way is more self-serving. It’s when you ask a question that’s so specific to you and not connected to the curriculum, that it’s hard for anyone else to relate or get value.

This kind of question gets a sad face from us, and especially from your fellow students.

The moral of the story is, of course, to ask a question in a way that serves both you and our entire community.

There are a few ground rules here. Start with your full name and where you’re from. Please keep your questions as concise as possible. If we need more details or backstory, she’ll let you know.

It’s our intention that this time together will bring you incredible clarity, inspiration and motivation. Not to mention some as-close-to-in-person-as-possible fun! We know it’s a virtual program but we feel so connected to this community and we are passionately committed to helping you become more knowledgeable about how to make more breastmilk.
