Abstract:

Dr. MILK ® (Mothers Interested in Lactation Knowledge) is an online and in-person support network to help physician mothers achieve their personal breastfeeding goals. Physician mothers have been defined as a high-risk breastfeeding group because of their unique barriers to achieving breastfeeding goals in addition to the common barriers shared with all work-outside-the-home mothers. When a physician mother reaches her breastfeeding goals, she is more likely to hold positive knowledge and attitudes towards breastfeeding in her medical practice. Until there is universal physician education in breastfeeding competencies, achieving personal breastfeeding success in physician mothers remains a critical strategy to impact thousands of mother-baby dyads that she will encounter over the course of her career.

Abstract:

I shall summarise the problems created by sponsorship of paediatric associations by the manufacturers of Breastmilk Substitutes, using findings from the literature. I shall then present the experience of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) in the UK, over the last 20 years since efforts were first made by the membership to end the sponsorship by several formula manufacturers including Nestle and Danone. Following a number of motions passed at the AGM over successive years, members voted in 2017 to end sponsorship. Following this the leadership carried out a consultation of the whole membership which led to the policy of sponsorship being re-affirmed. In 2019, following a change in leadership and the publication of two critical papers in prominent medical journals, the policy was changed to end all sponsorship by BMS manufacturers. The essential ingredients of this successful advocacy were lobbying by members over a long period of years; the publication of critical data in medical journals; and the election of officers sympathetic to a change of policy.

Abstract:

Functioning in the role of a lactation educator, one must be equipped with the tools for effective communication.

This topic explores the many ways to communicate successfully with prenatal and postpartum individuals. The talk highlights open-ended questions, affirmations, education and the anticipated results of three-step counseling. The presentation also explains how to recognize “change talk” and what words may signal an “open door” to further opportunities for sharing. Circle Charts and Participant Centered Education are discussed in detail. This talks prepares the counselor to share information in an open-minded, non-judgmental way that results in profitable teaching and learning for the counselor and perinatal person. These skills are presented in a fun, unique way and provide more tools for the lactation educator’s tool box.

Abstract:

Epidural use during labor has been increasing over the last several years. Along with the increase in epidural use, we have also seen an increase in cesarean deliveries, breastfeeding issues, and a decrease in breastfeeding duration. Increasing breastfeeding support to women who desire a medicated delivery may help to increase breastfeeding rates overall. This presentation will help the provider to become more aware of the possible negative effects that may prevail when epidural use during labor and delivery is promoted as safe for both mother and baby. Women should have the opportunity to make an informed decision about their medical care. It is the responsibility of providers who are working with new mothers and babies to recognize when breastfeeding is affected by medical intervention and are able to offer proper support.

Abstract:

Recent research on epigentics has led medical professionals to query about how the environment impacts the developing baby both in utero and throughout its lifetime. The genome is the genetic information inherited from one's parents, but the epigenome is what determine how the genome is expressed. This deciphering process is effected by both the internal and external environment of an individual, including nutrition. Researchers are discovering that these epigenetic changes can influence not only one but multiple generations. The first nutrition for a human outside the womb is breastmilk, and thus the epigenetic impact of breastfeeding has long reaching potential. Discover the results of some of the latest research in the field of epigenetics and breastmilk - milksharing/wet nursing, breastmilk and epigenetic influence, and changes in gene expression and gut flora.
