About the Course

Stanford's Short Course on Breastfeeding was designed for new mothers and the people who support them. This engaging, one-week learning experience, provides participants with everything they need to know to more successfully establish breastfeeding – or support a new mother who has decided to breastfeed. We created the course because we recognize that there is a very small window in which successful, exclusive breastfeeding can be established, and that many new mothers are mastering this skill during a busy and sometimes stressful time. Brought to life by beautiful illustrations and interviews with international mothers, we hope to reach the broadest spectrum of mothers, helping them understand the current recommendations, challenges, benefits and practical considerations around breastfeeding - while simultaneously inspiring them to consider breastfeeding as the first choice for feeding their babies.

an excellent course without a doubt, in which you share experiences of your daily practice, but you also acquire skills and strategies to be able to act as promoters of breastfeeding in Mexico.

correcto para aquella mujer que ya quiera amamantar y no tenga dudas. en absoluto movilizante o cuestionador para aquella que tenga dudas o no desee amamantar. Nada útil para aquellas personas que sostienen la lactancia desde un lugar profesional...

Este curso fue excelente ! Definitivamente lo recomiendo. Aprendí muchísimo acerca de la lactancia materna exclusiva y en general de la importancia de la lactancia maternal. No solo es un vínculo emocional lo que sea crea, es más que eso. Los beneficios son innumerables y realmente a pesar de que soy personal de salud los desconocía. Que importante es poder capacitarse de esta manera! No solo obtienes información para aprovechamiento profesional sino también para tu propio uso personal. Muy agradecida con esta oportunidad !

It has been very useful to learn more about the importance of the breastfeeding process. It is crucial for new mothers and mothers-to-be to be informed about its benefits and advantages, as well as the many risks that her health and her baby’s health may be put at if decided not to breastfeed while being able to do so. I believe that breastfeeding is the very first and most important right that babies should be granted. I would definitely recommend this course.

I have really enjoyed this course. It does not contain too much information and constantly repeats the most important thoughts. One small detail, in my opinion, question 4 of a final quiz was not quite clear because it is not mentioned who is eating those foods: baby or a mother? Thus, it is a bit confusing from which aspect to choose the right answer. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this course.

El curso me gusto mucho realmente no es nada complicado y cualquier persona con conocimientos básicos le puede entender, realmente siempre he pensado que la leche materna es la mejor opción para alimentar a los recién nacidos y me gusto mucho ver en el curso como es que en otros lugares se hace esta práctica.

Me ayuda mucho a afianzar mis conocimientos y tener más seguridad a la hora de transmitir una enseñanza a mis pacientes y a las mamás que estén interesadas y botar la idea que no se puede dar lactancia. si se puede y sus beneficios son innumerables!

Es un excelente curso. Hace unos días nació mi primera bebé y nos fue muy útil a mi esposa y a mí, para tomar una mejor decisión para alimentar a nuestra hija, al estar más informados y conocer todas las ventajas del "breastfeeding". ¡Recomendable!

Disfrute mucho los videos, muy eficientes y prácticos para aprender. Sugiero que los cuestionarios estén habilitados también en español no solo en ingles (para los que no dominamos el idioma todavía)

Great course! I learned a lot from the "what happened to breastfeeding" section which was extremely eye opening. More mothers (AND DOCTORS) need access to this information.

Very useful information especially for non-medical people. Strongly believe that every mother-to-be should be introduced to such a course before delivery! Good job! :)

I wish I knew this all before. I wish I could tell people with all wrong information to not make others lives a hell by bombarding their absolutely crap knowledge.
