Do you want to unlock the secrets of Making More Milk? Barbara D. Robertson is 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!

This course is for professionals and families! All you need is to be a person who wants to know more about milk supply! When you register, you will get an invitation to join Thinkific, an easy to use, online learning program. You will see the required reading listed for each of the seven Sessions.  This group will consist of seven live 2-hour Zoom meetings where the important parts of the assigned chapters will be reviewed. We are very lucky that one of the authors, Lisa Marasco, will be joining us for these meetings. After the discussion there will be about 30 minutes to answer your questions, and then the last 30 minutes will be spent in break out rooms discussing our clinical questions. You do not need to attend all of the live meetings. These meetings will be recorded and posted on our Thinkific Course for you.

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!
