GOLD Learning Day 2020 - Breastfeeding and the Substance-Exposed Infant

GOLD Learning is excited to once again offer our GOLD Learning Presentations! This live day of education will take place on January 21, 2020 and is the perfect opportunity to start off the new year with new perspective and insight.

Infants with prenatal substance exposure require specialized care, and research shows that breastfeeding/human milk is an important part of their recovery. Join us for a special day of education to learn more about breastfeeding and neonatal abstinence syndrome, the pharmacokinetics of opiates, cannabis and cocaine in human milk, and strategies for improving access to human milk for this vulnerable population of infants. Our expert speakers include Dr. Wendy Jones, Dr. Kelly McGlothen and speech-language pathologist and IBCLC Amber Valentine.

This program has applied for CERPs, CNEs & MEAC Midwifery CEUs. We look forward to having you join us for this exciting day of learning!

Abstract:

This presentation is designed to discuss the role of feeding therapy, breastfeeding, and family dynamics with infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome. These baby/family dynamics can be complex situations and feeding difficulties are extremely common. Breastfeeding education/information can be implemented prior to birth along with other education for families to promote more infant/family bonding and reduce stress of being born in substance exposure. Breastfeeding dramatically reduces stress signs in infants exposed to substances neonatally. Working together as an interdisciplinary team, we can set these families up for more successful feeding opportunities and decreased stress in developmental care.

Kelly McGlothen-Bell, PhD, RN, IBCLC
Empowering Breastfeeding in Women Receiving Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder: A Call for Policy Change
San Antonio Kelly McGlothen-Bell, PhD, RN, IBCLC

Dr. Kelly McGlothen-Bell is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas Health San Antonio, School of Nursing. As a nurse scientist, Dr. McGlothen-Bell is dedicated to understanding and resolving perinatal-infant health disparities in underrepresented groups, particularly among mother-infant dyads impacted by preterm birth and substance use disorders. Dr. McGlothen-Bell uses interdisciplinary research, bio-behavioral methodologies, and community-engaged strategies to define and explore health priorities that can be remedied through culturally appropriate and sustainable health solutions. Her program of science focuses on understanding the relationship between infant feeding behaviors and readiness in high-risk infants and attunement between the primary caregiver and child during infancy and toddlerhood. The culmination of these findings contributes to the development of evidence-based interventions geared toward improving parental engagement and pediatric feeding success in marginalized populations. Dr. McGlothen-Bell has published numerous peer-reviewed articles related to developmental strategies for high-risk infants. She has also presented her work at conferences nationally and internationally. Dr. McGlothen-Bell has received numerous awards to include the 2019 National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) Mentee/Mentor Grant Award. She was also selected as a 2019-2020 Academy Jonas Nurse Policy Scholar.

Objective 1: Summarize current breastfeeding recommendations for women receiving medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD).;

Objective 2: Identify common barriers and facilitators to breastfeeding among women receiving MAT for OUD.;

Objective 3: Describe specific strategies lactation supporters can use to empower breastfeeding in women receiving MAT for OUD.;

Objective 4: Explain how policies can be adapted to better support breastfeeding in women receiving MAT for OUD.

San Antonio Kelly McGlothen-Bell, PhD, RN, IBCLC
Abstract:

Inequitable access to mother’s milk often disempowers those who may benefit the most from its benefits. Moreover, suboptimal breastfeeding has the potential to negatively impact the health and well-being of future generations to come. Mother’s own milk is internationally accepted as the most optimal source of nutrition for infants, yet breastfeeding initiation and duration rates among minority populations (i.e., women with opioid use disorders [OUDs]) continue to lag significantly behind that of the general population. The implications of the current U.S. opioid crisis and its increasing influence on women of reproductive age presents important considerations for the ways women and infants may receive inequitable access to breastfeeding and the benefits of mother’s milk. In this presentation, learn the keys needed to empower lactation support providers to advocate for the use of scientific evidence that informs breastfeeding practices for women receiving MAT for OUD.

She is passionate that breastfeeding should be valued by all and that medication should not be a barrier. She has 3 daughters and 5 grandchildren. All her family seem as passionate about breastfeeding as she is and currently all 3 of her daughters are breastfeeding.

United Kingdom Wendy Jones, PhD MRPharmS
Abstract:

We are aware that an increasing number of babies are exposed to opiates, to methadone, to cannabis and cocaine through maternal breastmilk. In this presentation I will discuss the pharmacokinetics of the medications and how this impact on the clinical care of the babies both immediately after delivery and late. We need mothers to be open and honest about any drugs which they have taken in order that we may care for the baby appropriately if it is exhibiting clinical symptoms. This impacts on safeguarding issues but our aim should be to help the mother consider the impact on her baby using evidence-based information and to maintain breastfeeding appropriately. What are the long- and short-term implications of exposure for mother and baby? Is there sufficient research? As always, more questions than answers.
