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.

Therapeutic Breast Massage

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.
Breast pain is one of the major causes of weaning. The likelihood of weaning increases the longer pain persists. Engorgement, plugged ducts, blebs and mastitis are commonly associated with acute breast pain. Therapeutic Breast Massage in Lactation (TBML) is one of the important measures to resolve pain quickly.
The purpose of this presentation is to enhance knowledge of TBML techniques for relieving discomfort caused by engorgement, plugged ducts and mastitis in lactating women and learn how to empower breastfeeding mothers to use these techniques as well.

Why Not Home - The Surprising Birth Choices of Doctors and Nurses

Have you ever wondered about home birth? What drives some families to pursue it, often at great personal expense and social risk? Mention home birth to a stranger on the street and you’ll likely get a reaction. In a time when we have more access to technology and healthcare than ever before, maternal mortality rates are rising. So too are C-section rates. At the same time there is a growing push by some to avoid the hospital altogether. Is this a misdirected are rising in the US as maternal mortality reaches Why would doctors who attend birth in hospitals choose to have their own babies at home? Join Jessica Moore, filmmaker and nurse practitioner, on a compelling journey through maternity care in the United States. Told through the lens of doctors, nurses, and midwives, Why Not Home? examines the latest evidence on risks and rewards of different birth settings. The film presents a balanced and accessible view on the latest research, along with moving personal stories of medical practitioners faced with big decisions for their own growing families. Viewers are challenged to move beyond preconceived ideas, and to envision a fresh future for maternity care in America.

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.

NARM Midwifery Bridge Category 1: Emergency Skills

During pregnancy and birth, maternal concerns often either start out as slight variations from normal, e.g. a slightly elevated blood pressure, or unexpectedly, e.g. a surprise breech. While these situations may not constitute emergencies from the get go, midwifes must be able to identify when action is required. This bundle addresses a variety of concerns affecting the birthing person and teaches midwives not only to identify and address them, but do so in a way that is respectful to the mother-baby unit.

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.

The Milk Sharing Conundrum - The Grey Area Between Scope and Need

All human babies have the right to breastmilk exclusivity. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways - breastfeeding, expressed breastmilk via a feeding device, or pasteurized donor human milk. Recently there has been much attention placed on the traditional, though professionally frowned upon, practice of informal milk peer to peer milk sharing. The increasing popularity of milk sharing via social media, the growing attention on the importance of breastmilk exclusivity, the increasing awareness of potential dangers of artificial milk, and the inability for donor milk banks to provide donor milk for more than those in critical need has led professionals and families to an impass. Even though some professionals have warned against the practice, its use is becoming more widespread. Finding policy and recommended practices can be difficult. This presentation reviews the current challenges and realities of milk sharing while helping professionals provide best practice recommendations.

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.
