Mariana Colmenares Castaño was born in Mexico City, and from an early age she was fascinated by animals and nature. She studied medicine at the National University of Mexico (UNAM), and found her passion as a pediatrician doing her residency at the National Pediatric Institute. With the birth of her first child, Mariana witnessed the lack of knowledge and commitment with breastfeeding and nutrition within the medical profession. This was her impetus to specialize in breastfeeding medicine. Certified as a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2011 by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE), she is currently a member of the International Lactation Consultant Association, the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine and a proud founding member of the National Lactation Consultant Association of Mexico (ACCLAM), where she served on the Board of Directors as Education Coordinator (2014-2019). Regional coordinator for the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine for the Región of LATAM (2018 to date) and an in coming board member 2019-2022. As part of her continuing professional training she studied at the International Breastfeeding Clinic, in Toronto CA.

Mariana is a member of the team for Breastfeeding Country Index BFCI, a project from Yale University and Universidad Iberoamericana whose goal is to develop an evidence base metric that can help decision-makers to understand the current status to elevate breastfeeding programs and increase breastfeeding rates. A frequent speaker at national and international conferences (plenary speaker at ILCA 2018), she has published numerous articles and co-authored a chapter for the National Academy of Medicine. To contribute to a medical profession better prepared to support breastfeeding, she teaches medical students at the National University of México and serves as a consultant for the National Health Institute and UNICEF.

Abstract:

Antenatal breastmilk expression may be suggested to mothers, including mothers with diabetes and obesity to improve breastfeeding and maternal and infant outcomes postpartum. It can be a tool for use in these special circumstances, collecting colostrum prenatally can permit supplementation of newborns at risk for hypoglycemia at birth, reducing the use of formula. It is important also to know that teaching mothers hand expression techniques prenatally improves breastfeeding rates. Other clinical cases that can benefit from this practice are women with insufficient glandular tissue, polycystic ovaries, and mothers who have breast surgery. Learn more about the current literature on antenatal milk extraction, the complexity of labour induction and whether there is any truth to the belief that it is not possible to stimulate the nipples during pregnancy because it could start labor, and how and when to implement antenatal milk extraction in practice.

United States Fiona Jardine, PhD Candidate, Advanced Lactation Consultant, Postpartum Doula

Fiona Jardine is a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland’s iSchool where she is conducting pioneering research into the experiences of those who exclusively pump human milk, specifically focusing on the information they need, how they find it, and what they do with it. In addition, she is able to provide insights into many different aspects of exclusive pumping thanks to the breadth of the data she collected; follow along with her findings here: bit.ly/EPresearch. Fiona is also an Advanced Lactation Consultant and a postpartum doula so that she can provide the support that she believes is so desperately needed, especially in the fourth trimester.

Abstract:

Exclusively pumping (EPing) provides a solution to some breastfeeding problems, while still providing most of the benefits of human milk. In addition, the prevalence of EPing is on the rise. However, there is a lack of data on EPing, especially concerning the reasons for EPing and the information and support needs of EPers. My study collected qualitative and quantitative data on these (and many other) topics from over 2,000 EPers; the findings indicate that EPers often get no or bad advice from their health/lactation care providers. This poor knowledge of and negative opinions about EPing often contribute to EPers feeling frustrated and unsupported. In addition, these undesirable experiences threaten both the initiation and duration of breastfeeding-via-EPing. This presentation focuses on the reasons why EPers breastfeed without nursing, their feelings about EPing, their information needs, and what lactation care providers can do to better support EPers.

Abstract:

Pumping can be a choice or a necessity and the role of Lactation Professionals is to meet the parents where they are at. There are endless reasons for parents to use a breast pump, including prematurity, maternal-infant separation, low milk supply, return to work. Pumping can also be a choice for parents that do not wish to directly latch their baby, called Exclusive Pumping. Pumping parents deserve the same kind of evidence-based care as their exclusively breastfeeding counterparts but are often marginalized. During this workshop, you will learn how to best support a pumping parent: the importance of proper flange sizing, pumping schedules, exclusive pumping, the emotional toll of triple feeding, and how to help parents set realistic goals based on their own values.

Australia Helene M. Johns, Midwife, IBCLC, PhD Candidate
Abstract:

During the MILC study we recruited 1003 postpartum mothers of term healthy infants who intended to breastfeed to explore the prevalence and outcomes of breast milk expression, and whether feeding other than directly from the breast prior to hospital discharge decreased the proportion of these infants receiving any breast milk at six months. Data were collected between June 2009 and November 2011, at recruitment 24-48 hours after birth and by telephone interview at three and six months postpartum. At recruitment, 48% of infants had been fully breastfeeding at the breast, 47% had received at least some expressed breast milk. Only 36% of primiparas had been fully feeding at the breast. At six months, infants who had fed only at the breast at recruitment were more likely fed breast milk (76% vs. 59%; OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.27, 2.46; adjusted for parity, type of birth, breastfeeding intention, perceived breastfeeding problems at recruitment and education).

USA Alyssa Schnell, MS, IBCLC
Abstract:

Many breastfeeding parents rely on a breast pump to help provide milk for their babies when they are separated or not feeding directly from the breast for other reasons. Others will use a breast pump to bring in or grow their milk production. Some of these parents may find pumping uncomfortable. Many others have difficulty expressing enough milk to meet their babies’ needs. There are also those who produce an overabundance of milk while pumping. This session addresses all of these parents by providing ideas for making pumping as effective, efficient, and comfortable as possible.
