Event Details

Birthing interventions include: continuous electronic fetal monitoring, IV therapy, restriction of nutrition, restriction of mobility, use of pharmaceutical pain relief measures, magnesium sulfate administration, cesarean birth, vacuum and forceps delivery. Each intervention will be described with typical rates, risk and benefits, and the impact on the breastfeeding relationship. The birth history will be described including why it matters and how to do it in a respectful and efficient manner. 

  When assessing the mother-baby dyad, the newborn assessment is critical to ascertain readiness to breastfeed and to identify anomalies that must be addressed. This session will address the newborn’s head and neck, physical findings that might affect successful breastfeeding. 

NICU babies usually are not healthy nor stable upon their arrival to this world and have to be separated from their mothers.  When they need their parents, they need to overcome that “disconnect.” Laid-back breastfeeding and skin to skin are valuable and efficacious ways to facilitate the emotional and physical connection, and breastfeeding! Practical solutions to NICU challenges will be discussed.
