Milk Sharing: Comparative Risks and Biomedical Ethics

The advent of Internet forums that facilitate peer-to-peer human milk sharing has resulted in health authorities stating that sharing human milk is dangerous. There are risks associated with all forms of infant feeding, including breastfeeding and the use of manufactured infant formulas. Part one of this presentation will compare the risks of milk sharing with the risks of using infant formula and include suggestions for risk mitigation. The facilitation of peer-to-peer milk sharing via the Internet has proven challenging to many health professionals and organizations. Biomedical ethics can be used to explore medical dilemmas and find reasoned, consistent, and defensible solutions to moral problems. The principles of biomedical ethics--autonomy, veracity, beneficence, nonmaleficence, confidentiality, and justice--are applied to peer-to-peer milk sharing in the second part of this presentation. Application of these principles provides guidance to assist health workers to act ethically in their interactions with mothers and others around the peer sharing of milk

This lecture was originally offered as part of the Breastfeeding Education Bundle #2.

Breastfeeding In Hong Kong And Traditional Chinese Wisdom On Confinement Practices

Breastfeeding rates upon discharge is rising in Hong Kong over the past 20 years. Breastfeeding has become more of a topic than ever before. However, it is still very common to have early introduction of formula and exclusive breastfeeding rate is still low. Most private hospitals do not allow 24 hours room in. Many mothers need to go back to work when the baby is only six weeks old. In Hong Kong, it is very common to practice a confinement period after birth. This traditional Chinese wisdom has many benefits for the mothers and babies. Mothers of other cultures can also make use of some of the practices to benefit themselves.

Rusty Pipe Syndrome: A Case Report From Poland

Bloody nipple discharge is an unusual experience during lactation for both the mother and her attending physicians. Painless bleeding from the breasts in the early post-partum period can be a physiological condition called a rusty pipe syndrome. This report describes the case of bilateral bloody nipple discharge that started after caesarean section and subsequently ceased within a few days. Natural breastfeeding is the best way of nourishing newborns and infants. The process of breast milk production starts as early as between weeks 16 and 22 of pregnancy and colostrum can appear from the nipple in the following weeks. Milk containing blood can be a cause of concern for the mother and her physician. The reasons can be various; however not all of them would be caused by bleeding from the glandular tissue.

How B.E.S.T. (Basic Evaluation of Structural Tension) Relates to Breast©

This lecture/course is intended to familiarize the medical and allied health community in the recognition of the often-overlooked muscle-related structural barriers to breastfeeding. It provides a discussion of clues to the predisposing factors of these barriers and explores their affect on infant "functional mobility" as it relates to the achievement of successful breastfeeding. It is intended to improve the clinician's assessment skills as they work with the mother/infant dyad in resolving breastfeeding difficulties/dysfunctions by development of insight into these often hidden and profoundly destructive structural manifestations. Recognition of these barriers with an emphasis on self-help techniques and when/who to refer parents/caregivers to for help, together with how to best meet their teaching/training needs across cultural barriers, is discussed. The ultimate purpose is the achievement of insight to improve the clinician's evaluation process, better enabling them to promote, enhance and even save the breastfeeding experience of the families served.

Mindful Breastfeeding: How Lactation Professionals Can Support Calm and Connection

The age-old practice of mindfulness meditation has increased in popularity across the globe over the past four decades and gained traction within the psychological and medical fields. Mindfulness centers on non-judgmental awareness of one's bodily sensations, thoughts, and emotions in the present moment. It has been scientifically shown to reduce stress, chronic pain, medical and psychological symptoms, and enhance immune function. Mindfulness practices often focus on psychobiological processes, which makes them well suited as in intervention during the perinatal period, and even more specifically breastfeeding. This presentation outlines the ways in which mindfulness can positively impact lactation, during its normal course and especially when there are challenges. As lactation professionals who clinically and holistically support clients, it is beneficial to be able to share mindfulness strategies that can serve as a bridge between the mental, emotional, and physiological realms. Through a greater understanding of the practical aspects of mindfulness, gentle interventions can be incorporated into each feeding session. By supporting calm and connection within the parent and between the parent and infant, the experience of breastfeeding can be enhanced.

The Power of Mentorship

In Alameda County, Black women are initiating exclusive breastfeeding, but only ~15% remain breastfeeding by 3 months. For impoverished Black women, especially those in their teen years or who may have less than high school education, these numbers are even lower (9-12%). There is minimum breastfeeding support for black families. When Black mothers in West Oakland who received peer and professional breastfeeding support through Breast Friends, exclusive breastfeeding at 3 months rose to 63%. This project expanded the Breast Friends model to East Oakland while also training 12 new peer counselors (including 1 father), 24 new group facilitators, and enhancing breastfeeding messaging in the California Black Infant Health program. The project surpassed our expectations. 5 out of the 12 trained peer counselors are now working in other community organizations as Community health outreach worker, peer counselors, doulas and WIC staff.

Preventing the Plunge: Why the First 2 Weeks are Crucial for Breastfeeding Duration

The majority of women begin breastfeeding at birth. Within the first 6 weeks, however, breastfeeding rates fall dramatically. To help women hang in with breastfeeding beyond the first weeks, we must first understand why they struggle. Learn what the research is saying and what you can do in your practice to help women meet their breastfeeding goals. IBCLC's who specialize in the early weeks of breastfeeding will share case examples based on over 20 years of working with breastfeeding families.

Sending Reports: What’s in it for IBCLCs?

Most lactation professionals love client interactions, but only send reports to health care providers out of a sense of duty. But writing and sending reports to our client's health care providers can be more just an administrative task. Yes, it complies with IBLCE's Code of Ethics to "Principle 4: Report accurately and completely to other members of the healthcare team" but it can also increase collaboration, improve client outcomes, and grow your practice. This presentation seeks to reframe the process of writing and sending reports from a dreaded task to a clinical, ethical, and holistic way of supporting our clients while positively positioning ourselves as allied health professionals. Beyond the ethics (yes or no) and practicalities ("S.O.A.P." or not), a report to a health care provider is a source of communication about the consultation as well as marketing about your clinical skill, role in the client's lactation experience, and lactation practice. With a combination of the why and how, this presentation outlines the ways in which reports to health care providers can be beneficial to the client, the health care provider, and the IBCLC, as well as devoting some time to specific strategies that lactation consultants can implement to streamline the process of sending reports so that we can get to the next client.
