9am - My Brain is Doing What? Bias, Ethics, and the Lactation Specialist (Cynthia Good Mojab)

  • Providing unbiased services is explicitly or implicitly mandated or recommended in codes of ethics and position statements in many fields, including those that involve the provision of breastfeeding support. This session provides an overview of 1) the ethical call for the avoidance of bias by lactation specialists, 2) the nature of cognitive bias, 3) three bias-related cognitive processes that can unconsciously influence the thinking and behavior of lactation specialists, 4) risk factors for acting on bias, and 5) five strategies that can help lessen bias in breastfeeding support services.

12:45pm - WHO Code: What is it and Why does it Matter? (Meagan Wells)

1:10pm - Parent Burnout: Strategies for Identifying and Meeting Needs (Kim Miller)

  • Burnout is all too common, yet it's not really talked about. Ideas to help identify burnout and the unmet needs that lead to overwhelm. A quick bullet point break down of individual needs by personality type and how mindfulness can help. Warning signs overwhelm may have become depression. You are not alone, and yeah, parenting is hard, let's talk about that.
