GOLD Lactation Alumni Presentations 2017

Originally held as live webinars, the recordings are now available to be accessed online. It was an exciting day for our delegates who had the opportunity to delve deeper into case studies and new discoveries, and expand their knowledge and clinical skills. Kay Hoover will be asking you to put your detective hat on as she presents some unusual case studies, Barbara Wilson-Clay will be providing an in depth look at newborn assessment (an essential skill!) and Jane Morton will be sharing her wisdom and looking at the impact of teaching hand expression in the first hour as a way to prevent breastfeeding challenges.

Jane A. Morton, MD; Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics
First Touch, First Food, First Hour …in a mother’s hands
USA Jane A. Morton, MD; Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics

Dr. Jane Morton has had a long, fulfilling career as a general pediatrician, She has also had a long-standing interest in breastfeeding, from understanding its clinical benefits to practical solutions for mothers having difficulty in providing breastmilk to their infants.  Over the years, she has conducted research on human milk and breastfeeding and has designed and implemented systems and policies to help breastfeeding mothers.  She produced award winning videos on this topic, including “Breastfeeding: A Guide to Getting Started”, “A Preemie Needs His Mother: Breastfeeding a Premature Baby” and “Making Enough Milk, the Key to Successful Breastfeeding”.  These have been translated and widely used in thousands of hospitals to train both staff and new mothers. As an executive board member of both the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine and the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Breastfeeding, she enjoyed working to enlarge the footprint of breastfeeding, both nationally and internationally.

For a 5 year period, she joined the neonatology clinical faculty at Stanford to develop the Breastfeeding Medicine Program.  In that position, she had the opportunity to design a nationally recognized educational program, conduct and publish original research on milk production and composition in mothers of very low birth weight infants, and publish a study with the AAP on the efficacy of a breastfeeding curriculum for physician residents in training. She was an advisor to the California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative, and was a key author of the toolkit “Nutritional Support for the Very Low Birth Weight Infant”. She co-authored the book Best Medicine: Human Milk in the NICU.  She has published extensively and presented her original research and educational workshops internationally. She continues to teach at Stanford where she is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, Emerita.

Objective 1: Discuss why first hour hand expression could provide mothers with a skill during a time sensitive period to potentially prevent complications which lead to early termination of breastfeeding.
Objective 2: Discuss the salient science demonstrating the time sensitive nature of preventing complications with A, B and C and the supportive science behind hand expression of colostrum.
Objective 3: Discuss how hand expression could be encouraged as a useful and natural part of first hour breastfeeding.

USA Jane A. Morton, MD; Adjunct Clinical Professor of Pediatrics

The risk of early termination of breastfeeding typically relate to complications with a) attachment, b) breastmilk production, or c) the caloric intake of the infant. Simply put, A, B and C. Could hand expression taught in Labor and Delivery to every mother reduce early termination and the health, financial and emotional morbidity associated with breastfeeding complications in both low and high risk infants? This presentation will examine this question, focusing on the purpose of teaching early hand expression, the available science and the practice of integrating this technique into first hour care.

Looking Closely at The Baby

Barbara Wilson-Clay became a La Leche League Leader in 1982. She certified as an IBCLC and entered private practice in Austin, Texas in 1987. Barbara was named a Fellow of the International Lactation Consultant Association in 2008. She recently retired from her practice, which specialized in difficult breastfeeding situations. With a client load of 400-450 visits yearly, Barbara garnered a wealth of clinical and counseling experience and a trove of clinical teaching photos. In partnership with Kay Hoover, she created The Breastfeeding Atlas, which was translated into Chinese in 2019 by Fudan University Press. A Korean translation will be published in September 2020.

Barbara has been a citizen advocate for breastfeeding in the Texas legislature and helped pass a landmark law protecting breastfeeding rights. She is one of the co-founders of the non-profit Mothers Milk Bank at Austin, and retired as Vice President of the Board of Directors in 2010. She continues to serve on the Advisory Board. Barbara's research and commentaries have appeared in the Journal of Human Lactation, Archives of Disease in Childhood, the International Breastfeeding Journal, and others. She has served on various editorial review boards and contributed chapters to several lactation textbooks.

Objective 1: Identify muscle tone as an important predictor of breastfeeding ability in neonates
Objective 2: Identify and discuss torticollis as an issue that may impair breastfeeding ability.
Objective 3: Describe the effect of oro-facial structural anomalies on breastfeeding.


Clinical management of the breastfeeding mother and infant begins with accurate assessment of the issues that are affecting normal function. While breastfeeding is a dyadic activity, this presentation focuses on the infant. Specifically, the learner is invited to look closely at the individual baby, to observe facial tone and structure, and to identify any anomalies or restrictions in range-of-motion (such as those resulting from torticollis) that may negatively impact ability to breastfeed. Videos and photos will demonstrate both normal and abnormal presentations. Interventions will be proposed to assist infants who are unable to breastfeed so that they may continue to receive human milk, ideally from their own mothers, with an eventual goal of breastfeeding, if possible.

Advanced Breastfeeding Case Reports

Kay Hoover became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 1985. She sat for the very first exam and has taken the exam 4 times. She has worked as a private practice lactation consultant, a hospital lactation consultant at 5 different hospitals, the lactation consultant for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, for The Center for Childhood Obesity Research at The Pennsylvania State University, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. She currently is retired. She has presented workshops at national and international conferences and is a co-author of The Breastfeeding Atlas.

Objective 1: Describe the symptoms, treatment and possible long term complications for 3 unusual complications of breastfeeding
Objective 2: List key warning signs that a breastfeeding issue may be serious and identify when to refer to other care providers
Objective 3: Explain the importance of emotional support, follow up and careful charting when working with unusual breastfeeding situations.


Advanced Breastfeeding Case Reports will cover 4 unusual situations in a format that will allow you to use your skills to discover the ultimate outcome. One part of the excitement of our field is being detectives. These 4 cases will challenge your detective skills.
