The Ties that Bind- or Don't

This presentation was originally presented at the 21st Annual International Meeting of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.
Ankyloglossia in a breastfeeding infant may prevent the infant from latching well, and from achieving the proper suction and peristaltic motion needed to extract and move milk to the back of the mouth. This program will include a review by a pediatrician of the challenges and controversies in diagnosis and management of ankyloglossia. An ENT will discuss his experiences with the condition and what he describes as the unfavorable triad, which puts a mother-infant dyad at risk of having more problems with ankyloglossia and breastfeeding. A dentist will discuss his experiences with both tongue and lip tie.

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.

UNICEF/WHO Global Breastfeeding Advocacy Initiative

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.

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

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.

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.
