Did you know breastfeeding mothers have increased risk of developing carpel tunnel syndrome and tendonitis due to repetitive wrist motions? Are you having some pain? Through discussion and modeling, this course will cover proper body mechanics and energy conservation techniques to prevent injury and address pain during breastfeeding, diaper changing, lifting, and other daily activities of motherhood. Salus University occupational therapy graduate intern, Melissa Tucker, with supervision by Drs. Lauren Sponseller and Caitlin Foy, will be leading this workshop.

This class is FREE. No Registration is required. All babies are welcome!
