Demystifying Professional Certification Examination Development

The development of a professional certification examination is a laborious and intensive process. Due to security issues, details regarding the development of specific examinations cannot be completely transparent. However, the general process for the development of certification examinations should be a public and transparent topic. While every certification examination is unique, the development process for most professional certification examinations following best practices is somewhat similar. If you have ever wanted to know about how professional certification examinations are developed, what the process involves or how professional certification examinations differ from other types of examinations, this is the session for you!

Hear from the Chair and Executive Director of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE) on this relevant topic.

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.

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.

A Mother’s-Eye View of Breastfeeding Help

This is a free presentation from Nancy Mohrbacher, to honor all the amazing IBCLCs around the world. Every day IBCLCs improve the health of our future generations and empower families with their amazing work. Those of us who have been drawn to the work of caring for breastfeeding families, play a critical role in shaping the future of our society. We should never underestimate the power that skilled IBCLC support and counselling can have during a vulnerable time in the lives of both parents and babies. As Nancy points out, Excellence as an IBCLC isn’t about clinical skills alone. Attitude and approach play a big role in how our clients respond to our efforts to help with breastfeeding. This presentation looks at recent research that provides insight into how breastfeeding help is perceived by the families in our care. Knowledge gained from this session can help you to elevate both your practice and our profession as a whole. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to gain valuable education while sharing in the passion and excitement as we celebrate IBCLC day together!

Leadership Skills in Lactation: Make Extraordinary Things Happen

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.

Clients, Colleagues, or Critics? Negotiating Gaps between evidence and community standards

What does emerging science on neurobiology and epigenetics tell us about decision making in pregnancy, labour and birth? Does birth place matter? Should caesarean reduction be the goal? How long is labour? How long is human gestation? How accurate is an ultrasound date? What happens when clients want care that does not align with community standard? How do our messages about evidence and risk affect quality and safety? What do women say? What do providers believe? This session will explore new patient-centered outcomes from research on quality, safety, risk and responsibility. Together we will review and discuss emerging tools and strategies to facilitate conversations about the best available evidence and respectful maternity care.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
