Session Descriptions

  • Recongnizing When Things are Heading South: Investigating for low milk production.  When low milk production concerns present, where do you start? Is it real or perceived? Delayed, secondary or primary? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This session walks through the assessment process to determine what the cause of a low milk supply might be, including infant contributions such as tongue-tie. 
  • PCOS, Infertility and Breastfeeding: What's the Latest? PCOS is the leading cause of infertility in women and involves multiple possible hormonal imbalances. What has been learned about PCOS and breastfeeding? We will take a look at how the frequent problems of obestity, hyperandrogenism, insulin, thyroid and estrogen imbalances that may be part of a woman's unique profile can impact the breastfeeding journey, then discuss potential treatments that are based on etiologies. 
  • Hypoplastic Breast Syndrome (or IGT): The hot new diagnosis? Baby is here, but where’s the milk? One of the hottest breastfeeding problem topics among mothers on the internet is insufficient glandular tissue, and many are making this self-diagnosis in the absence of other explanations. LCs want to assure mothers that this is a rare phenomenon, but wonder what is going on when women have “questionable” breasts and poor milk output. This session takes a closer look at normal and abnormal breast development in the context of fetal, pubertal and pregnancy stages of development to better understand what may be going on. Discussion includes the relative merits and drawbacks of popular treatment approaches.   
  • Meeting clients where they’re at: Ethical guidelines when talking about complementary therapies  What can I say?” When it comes to complementary and alternative therapies, many lactation consultants are unsure of how to conduct this conversation with a client. We will take a look at our professional guidelines, the question of evidence, and handling real-life dilemmas that come up. This is an E-CERP talk.
