Birth and Beyond


Birth and Beyond

Birth & Beyond is a California initiative to provide instructor driven training with class materials and uniquely designed agenda for Baby-Friendly™ didactic courses.

An increasing number of hospitals are applying for Baby-Friendly™ status, and are seeking nurses who have completed this approved 2-Day Lactation Course. The 16-hour workshop provides the relevant evidence, proper knowledge-base, and specialized skills participants will need to confidently support, establish and protect both early mother-infant attachment and breastfeeding in the hospital setting.

This course endeavors to highlight the personal tools necessary to enhance early parent-infant attachment, and equip families with the tools to better listen to and comprehend the language of the newborn. This course also retains a core emphasis on honoring the mother’s beliefs and choices of infant feeding.

The workshop was adapted from California Department of Public Health’s Birth and Beyond California Learner Workshop and updated to meet the staff training objectives required by Baby-Friendly USA™ for hospitals that are on the new 4-D Pathway to Baby-Friendly™ designation.

Upon successful completion of this course, Genesis students are welcome back to take any or all of this class again at a later date to sharpen and brush up their skill sets, at no cost!

15 Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) will be provided upon successful course completion.

Students whose licenses are pending will be provided with a temporary certificate of completion that may be shown to current or potential employers as proof of course completion.

Course Cost: $150.00

Manual Cost: $50.00
