The Anatomy of
is best for your baby.
We all know it.
Fortunately, there is abundant support for new mothers by lactation specialists in hospitals and in the community. Sometimes, though, after all of the best advice, Mom and baby are still struggling. Once Mom has proper technique, then we need to look at the BABY. There can be structural imbalances in the baby’s cranium, neck, spine, muscles and underlying systems that are preventing him from being able to nurse properly. These issues can be corrected through various forms of gentle and very specific bodywork.
This course is for the lactation consultant who recognises the problem and wants to learn more about the cause. This course is for the chiropractor or body worker who wants to become a specialist and learn skills to correct the problem. This course is for the parents who want to educate themselves about their baby’s health and development.
This course is for everyone who supports breastfeeding and values the future of our children.

Have you ever felt like the money you spent for your CE credits was not valuable or, even worse, a waste of your precious time? You either didn’t learn anything new, or the material just wasn’t applicable to your daily practice? We all have had that experience.
This course is designed to be PRACTICAL– to give you a coherent understanding and not just theory or disconnected listings. Whether you chose our live workshops or a virtual class, we will walk you through real life anatomy and show how all of the pieces effect the whole. Our goal is to provide you with skills that you can immediately start to use in your practice.
Let’s face it… private practice can be hard. It can also be difficult, as a medical professional, to have the tools you need to benefit your patients. Our passion is to train skilled therapists and educate the medical community that they are there… thereby not only empowering doctors but providing the needed care to support breastfeeding for our children’s future.
