Perinatal Conference 2017

Originally offered 2017 at our GOLD Perinatal Conference.
The birth of a child is a time of profound transition and adjustment. The care that a family receives during the perinatal period can have a lasting impact on the rest of their lives. Respectful, kind, culturally sensitive and evidence based care results in families who feel valued and empowered as they start the journey of parenthood. This has far reaching implications for the physical and mental health for both parents and child. As care providers during this vulnerable period, it’s important that we have a clear understanding of the potential impact of our practices.

Liderazgo en Lactancia - para alcanzar metas extraordinarias (Spanish)

Esta es una presentación gratuita para rendir homenaje a todos los asombrosos IBCLCs y a los trabajadores que apoyan la lactancia materna alrededor del mundo.

La grabación de esta presentación estará disponible después del 7 de marzo.

Los desafíos de la lactancia materna van más allá de posicionar y sujetar al bebé correctamente. Para brindar apoyo efectivamente a las familias que actualmente están amamantando, los defensores de la lactancia maternal también deben apoyar a la comunidad. La defensa de la lactancia materna se trata de construir sistemas y liderar consistentemente los cambios culturales para reforzar más profundamente la alimentación humana como la norma. Cuando los líderes de la lactancia materna alinean sus valores y creencias con acciones y estrategias para promover la lactancia como parte de una comunidad entera el cambio puede ocurrir de adentro hacia afuera a través de una estrategia de salud pública.

We invite all IBCLC's as well as those supporting breastfeding families to join GOLD Learning & Paulina Erices this year as we celebrate IBCLC Day on March 7.

Description: Breastfeeding challenges go beyond latching and positioning. To effectively support breastfeeding/chestfeeding families, lactation advocates need to also support the community. Breastfeeding advocacy is about building systems and consistently leading cultural changes to more deeply reinforce human feeding as the norm. When lactation leaders are able to align values and beliefs with actions and strategies to promote breastfeeding as part of whole community, change can happen from the inside out through public health strategy.

The Neuroscience behind the skin-to-skin imperative

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

The underlying science to all biology is that genes make brains and bodies, and brains make those bodies behave to accomplish ‘reproductive fitness’. Recent advances have shown that the ENVIRONMENT influences the genes through epigenetic processes, and fires and wires brain circuits, and also determines highly conserved behaviors necessary for fitness. Human reproductive fitness begins with birth and breastfeeding, and the necessary environment is maternal-infant SKIN-TO-SKIN CONTACT (SSC). Essential steps are described, transition to extrauterine life, maternal regulation, biological roots of bonding, breastfeeding as an integrated behavior with sleep, with early maternal sensitization and later attuned parenting. The opposite of SSC is SEPARATION, leading to toxic stress with a number of mal-adaptions that may remain for life. The most significant relate to emotional and social intelligence, and failures in breastfeeding. The ecobiodevelopmental model captures this accurately, but must be applied at birth to accomplish fitness for early childhood development.

The Ties that Bind- or Don't

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Ankyloglossia in a breastfeeding infant may prevent the infant from latching well, and from achieving the proper suction and peristaltic motion needed to extract and move milk to the back of the mouth. This program will include a review by a pediatrician of the challenges and controversies in diagnosis and management of ankyloglossia. An ENT will discuss his experiences with the condition and what he describes as the unfavorable triad, which puts a mother-infant dyad at risk of having more problems with ankyloglossia and breastfeeding. A dentist will discuss his experiences with both tongue and lip tie.

UNICEF/WHO Global Breastfeeding Advocacy Initiative

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Hypertension affects nearly one of three women in the United States. Breastfeeding leads to metabolic changes that could reduce risks of hypertension. Hypertension disproportionately affects black women, but rates of breastfeeding lag behind the general population. In the Black Women’s Health Study (N = 59,001), we conducted a nested case control analysis using unconditional logistic regression to estimate the association between breastfeeding and incident hypertension at ages 40-65. Controls were frequency matched 2:1 to 12,513 hypertensive cases by age and questionnaire cycle. Overall, there was little evidence of association between ever-breastfeeding and incident hypertension (Odds ratio 0.97, 95% CI: 0.92, 1.02). However, age modified the relationship (P = 0.02): breastfeeding was associated with reduced risk of hypertension at ages 40-49 (Odds ratio 0.92, 95% CI: 0.85, 0.99) but not older ages. Our results suggest long-duration breastfeeding may reduce incident hypertension in middle age.

Breastfeeding Promotion in a Swedish NICU

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Being separated from your newborn infant in the busy NICU environment is counteracting attachment and bonding, resulting in poor breastfeeding outcome. Changes in NICU design, promotion of a care culture towards more family integrated care, teaching staff on the benefits of breastfeeding and measuring breastfeeding outcomes have been important aspects in breastfeeding promotion in our NICU

Health Equity: An Issue for Breastfeeding?

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Using an equity analysis is key to achieving optimal breastfeeding rates for all mothers and babies. Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine has been working to incorporate a system based root cause analysis into their work, as organization and in the field. Center of Social Inclusion has been supporting the field in thinking about how to incorporate a structural lens into work around birth and breastfeeding. In this presentation, we overview a structural race analysis, share specific implications for breastfeeding and first food policy and practice.

I discussed how the research on breastfeeding carried out at the Federal University of Pelotas (Brazil) has helped shape global policies on the recommendation for exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, the use of child growth standards based on breastfed children, and the harmful long-term consequences of artificial feeding.

Extending Breastfeeding among Black and Latina Mothers: Preparing Women for the Postpartum Period

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.

Breastfeeding provides substantial health benefits for children and mothers and the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommends breastfeeding for the first year of life. Each additional week of breastfeeding confers benefit. Unfortunately, significant racial/ethnic disparities in breastfeeding initiation and duration exist in the US with black and some Latina women having lower rates of both as compared with white women. Research demonstrates that there is a link between depressive symptoms and breastfeeding duration and that lack of preparation for common physical and emotional symptoms and experiences which occur in the postpartum period may be associated with both. We share results from a randomized trial which tested a behavioral educational intervention with the secondary aim of increasing breastfeeding duration among self-identified black and Latina mothers.
