Rainbow Families recognizes and acknowledges that feeding a baby can look different for everyone in our community. We also understand there is often a huge lack of inclusive services for parents and expecting parents, that are affirming and supportive of their experience as a LGBTQ+ person.
Our next event will be held on Zoom, October 09, 2021 at 3pm - 4:30pm.
For the past two years we have been working in partnership with the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) on an important resource and educational class designed by community members specifically for our community. The classes are a safe, inclusive space for parents expecting a baby in the coming months who want to know more about Breastfeeding, Chestfeeding and Human Milk Feeding.
What to expect:
- An 1.5 hour Zoom class that is facilitated by an ABA Counsellor and Rainbow Families representative
- Discussion on feeding options for LGBTQ+ parents
- An opportunity to listen to experience from a parent from our community
- Participants will also receive a copy of the book we have written with the ABA. This book goes into depth about inducing lactation, chestfeeding, co-nursing, and more!
Our Breastfeeding, Chestfeeding and Human Milk Feeding classes, are the first LGBTQ+ specific lactation and feeding classes in Australia and we are thrilled to be able to offer them for free thanks to the support of the Vasudhara Foundation and Lush Cosmetics.
If you have any questions about the classes please get in touch.
