About this Event

La Leche League of Ireland, in association with the HSE, invites you to attend this FREE health professional seminar in Waterford University Hospital's Elva Theatre, RCSI building. The seminar will be held Friday March 6th from 9:30am until 1pm.

10am: Nancy Mohrbacher IBCLC, FILCA: "Simplifying Breastfeeding: the First 36 Hours" (1.5 CERPS available)

Nancy is a leading lactation consultant speaker and educator on a wide range of breastfeeding topics at conferences and events all over the world. She is the author of several books including Working and Breastfeeding Made Simple and Breastfeeding Answers Made Simple, as well as writing chapters in key lactation consultant textbooks.

Geared especially for those who work with nursing couples after birth, this talk focuses on positioning strategies that take advantage of infants inborn feeding behaviours to make early breastfeeding easier, the effects of skin-to-skin contact and separation on infant stability, what biology tells us about normal newborn feeding patterns, and how positive and consistent messaging makes it possible to support breastfeeding in both word and deed.
