Breastfeeding seminars

On-demand breastfeeding classes now available for parents in Mayo



A new series of breastfeeding lessons from NursingMama.ie covering the early days to the end of your breastfeeding journey is now available for Mayo parents.

The first of its kind to launch in Ireland, this new service allows parents to take NursingMama.ie classes at their own pace and from the comfort of their own home. Everything expectant parents need to know is now broken down into simple, easy-to-understand videos so they can feel empowered and confident through the breastfeeding journey.

‘Breastfeeding Preparation and Beyond’ or ‘Weaning from Breastfeeding’ courses can be purchased individually or as a group – The Complete Breastfeeding Journey.

NursingMama.ie was founded in 2021 by Katie Mugan. With over twenty years of experience as a general and pediatric registered nurse, Katie established her own private practice after earning the International Board Certified Lactation Consultant designation in 2019.

With her extensive experience in the community, Katie saw many parents feel anxious and overwhelmed, uncertain about breastfeeding, and was passionate about sharing her knowledge to help them succeed and thrive over the course of these first steps.

Through her nursingmama.ie platform, she has designed unique prenatal supports in the form of breastfeeding preparation, newborn care classes and a breastfeeding weaning workshop; which has been a huge success and allows mothers to end their breastfeeding journey in a gentle and positive way.

For the first time in Ireland, these services are now available on demand and accessible remotely, across the country.

Founder of NursingMama.ie, Katie Mugan said: “I have seen a significant increase in demand for my breastfeeding classes. Now anyone can be part of the Nursing Mama community. Everything expectant parents need to know is now broken down into simple, easy-to-understand videos so they can feel empowered and confident through the breastfeeding journey.

“Not only do members receive a lifetime membership, but they can also access my own private Facebook group and meet like-minded moms. I will be hosting a bi-monthly live Q&A session for each class. Members will have the opportunity to answer individual questions and learn a lot of advice, not only from me, but also from their peers.

Influencer, podcast host and author Joanne Larby commented: “I took the online prenatal and breastfeeding course with NursingMama during my first pregnancy and cannot recommend them highly enough.

“Katie has a wonderful way of packing a huge amount of easily digestible information without feeling overloaded or overwhelmed. Katie’s social content is educational and practical, while managing to make you feel less alone during the mad rush than is motherhood”
