Breastfeeding Research Roundup 2016

Réka Morvay, MA, IBCLC

Wednesday, March 23, 2016
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM



Réka Morvay, MA, IBCLC

Réka Morvay is a Board Certified Lactation Consultant with a Master's degree in Psychology from Cornell University. In graduate school, she studied reproductive biology and the intersection of brain and behavior. She has been working with breastfeeding mothers since 2007, and has been educating hospital staff, nurses, midwives, doulas and other birth workers in supporting breastfeeding since 2012. She has practiced as a lactation consultant in Eastern Europe and in the United States, in hospital, outpatient clinic and private practice settings. She currently serves Orange County in her private practice.


Program Description 

In the age of too much information, our most challenging task is to synthesize the vast amounts of data and research into a cohesive whole. As new studies are coming out in ever increasing numbers, the more difficult it gets for the practitioner to keep abreast in their day to day lives with the latest scientific consensus or the newest research findings.


In this 2-hour webinar, you will be introduced to the concept of levels of evidence, and how to evaluate a scientific source to see what level of evidence it represents. We'll take a look at the most recent policy statements and updates from the most relevant professional organizations such as the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. We'll scan the latest literature reviews from the Cochrane Collaboration for the latest conclusions. We will review The Lancet's recently published series on Breastfeeding, and introduce some fresh research from local initiatives in Southern California.



Program Objectives

Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:

  • Describe current best practice recommendations from relevant professional associations such as ABM, AAP and ACOG
  • Describe the differences among levels of evidence
  • Identify 3 sources of information that synthesize the highest available level of evidence concerning breastfeeding research
  • List 3 new research initiatives in Southern California

Cancellation Policy

Written cancellations received one week prior to the event will be granted subject to a $5 fee. No refunds after this date.
