The Art of Therapeutic Breast Massage in Supporting Breastfeeding Workshop

Overview:

Breast pain is one of the major causes of weaning. The likelihood of weaning increases the longer pain persists. Engorgement, plugged ducts, blebs and mastitis are commonly associated with acute breast pain. Therapeutic Breast Massage in Lactation (TBML) is one of the important measures to resolve pain quickly.

The purpose of this workshop is to enhance knowledge of TBML techniques for relieving discomfort caused by engorgement, plugged ducts and mastitis in lactating women and learn how to empower breastfeeding mothers to use these techniques as well.

Objectives:

  • Describe how breast massage is used by different cultures to help with problems such as engorgement, plugged ducts, and mastitis.

  • Identify causes of acute breast pain and treatment options.

  • Describe how hand expression and therapeutic breast massage (TBML) assist in management of engorgement, plugged ducts and mastitis.

  • Demonstrate and teach lactation consultants simple techniques of breast massage and hand expression.

  • Explain how to teach self-breast massage techniques to breastfeeding mothers
