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.

This lecture was originally offered at our 2017 GOLD Lactation Conference.

How much time do I have to view the presentations?

  • Time for viewing the talks begins once you purchase the product. For Live Webinars & Symposiums, the viewing period begins from when the live event takes place. Presentations can be accessed 24/7 and can be viewed as many times as you like during the viewing period.

  • YES! Each lecture comes with a PDF handout provided by the Speaker.

Some lectures include a Q&A, what does that mean?
