Event Details

The goal of this conference is to provide healthcare providers with an update on breastfeeding management, focusing on current clinical evidenced-based and scientific research-based practices which are supportive of successful breastfeeding and postpartum influences on breastfeeding while emphasizing the critical role providers’ play in the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding.

 

Objectives

 

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

 

  • Recognize maternal and infant signs of symptomatic ankyloglossia and indications for frenotomy.
  • Demonstrate appropriate steps and technique for performing a frenotomy procedure.
  • Review maternal and infant competence, the maternal-infant relationship, and the neuroendocrine basis for maternal and infant behavior and attachment
  • Identify intuitive interactions mother has with her baby, and why these interactions are so important for the dyad.
  • Discuss breastfeeding as a learned behavior influenced by cultural norms in communities.
  • Identify the ways anesthesia or analgesia may impact a breastfeeding dyad
  • Evaluate pre-, intra-, and post-anestesia issues that may contribute to the low-stress continuation of breastfeeding, and what specific steps may enhance a mother’s success.
  • Recognize the role of the obstetricians and gynecologists in breastfeeding promotion, protection and support
  • Describe practical medical practice management strategies on how to create and maintain an office setting that promotes and supports breastfeeding.
  • Recognize maternal and infant signs of symptomatic ankyloglossia and indications for frenotomy.
  • Demonstrate appropriate steps and technique for performing a frenotomy procedure.
  • Review differential of acute and chronic breastfeeding related pain.
  • Demonstrate hands-on breast massage techniques that provide a simple, readily accessible method that can be easily taught to mothers and lactation consultants
