freebies freebie friday

Whew! That title is a mouth full. So many wonderful FREEBIES today courtesy of Cindy Leclerc, RN IBCLC and Jana Stockham, RN IBCLC (also known as Cindy and Jana). I’m not even sure where to start!


Since we’re still living (and many still in lockdown) in the COVID-19 era, it makes sense to start with the most pressing freebie first. Cindy and Jana have made a fantastic yet simple infographic that answers the most common breastfeeding and COVID-19 answers your clients may be asking you. You can download it for free here.

5 crucial ways to preparing for breastfeeding nowNext up, how about grabbing a free Ebook written by Cindy and Jana while you’re already here. It’s titled, “5 Crucial Ways to Prepare for Breastfeeding Now.” It’s a helpful book for both new and expecting parents and for some, could be an invaluable tool. We all know that for our clients, it’s never too early to start learning about breastfeeding – wherever they are in their journey. So why not share it with them?


Last but not least, Cindy and Jana have made not 1 but 2 of their online courses FREE! That’s right, both are absolutely free (for a limited time).  The first is, “Healing & Recovery from Birth: Avoiding Infection, Complications & Pain,” and the second  is a 3 part mini-series titled, “Getting Ready to Breastfeeding: What women wished they had known ahead of time.” Just click on the name of the course you’re interested in (or both of them), enroll and you’re all set to go!

When I was first discussing Cindy and Jana’s online birth and breastfeeding courses with them, the first question that popped into my mind was, “Why are they making these courses free? And why now?” They passionately explained their reasoning and why particularly, at this time:

We have seen firsthand how health care provider contact is now limited and we want to help. During this difficult time, there is more need than ever for research-based information for new and expectant moms. We are trying our best to keep up with the need and are pleased to now offer the following resources for FREE. We want to make sure no new mother misses the information she will need.

“The 2018 update of the Nutritional Support of the VLBW Infant Toolkit was developed to provide rapid assessment of current nutritional practices, outline evidence-based best practices, and enable rapid multidisciplinary improvement cycles to improve nutritional outcomes for premature newborns. We have added important new references, streamlined recommendations, and targeted the best resources.”

“Lactation Lessons From Leanna”
Guest Post by Leanna Mae Sexton
July 5, 2016

Lactation Lessons From Leanna has everything you need to know about lactation, but it’s different than the rest. Instead of writing it like a novel, this book has been written in lessons similar to a Q&A. Nobody wants to have to flip through hundreds of pages to find the answer to their question. Flip to the detailed outline in the beginning of the book and easily be able to find the topic you have in mind. It’s extremely organized. It’s easy to read. Information is clear and straight to the point. Lists are bullet pointed for quick referencing. This book will bring clarity to all your lactation questions.

When asked the reasons why I wrote this book, it is because I wanted an easy to understand reference for all education levels. I noticed most breastfeeding books are written like novels with a vague table of contents. You have to flip through hundreds of pages to hunt for your answer. I wanted to write something more like a Q&A. I made an outline of all the topics discussed at the beginning of the book. This book is an extremely organized easy read that anyone can reference.

My goals are to improve lactation education in every home. I would love to see this book being recommended by lactation professionals and obstetric staff. It is a dream of mine to get it in hospital gift shops and maternity units.
