We encourage long-term breastfeeding and want nursing mothers to be included. Training, however, is intensive, requiring long hours and a quiet room, so that all who have invested their time and money can hear and participate. Training also requires that all be able to participate in relaxation and various other floor exercises. If you are nursing a baby or child, you must have someone with you who can bring your baby to you and take them out of the training room when they are done eating. This enables both the nursing mother and others in attendance to maximize their workshop experience.
