Abstract:

Developing a step-by-step care plan is arguably the most important part of patient care. Without it, necessary treatments may be neglected. As lactation providers, it is our role to set proper expectations for our clients, as well as measure clinical improvement and patient outcomes. When working with infants that struggle with sucking or other oral function issues, there is a process and a timeline we can put together that will guide the care we are giving. In this presentation you will learn how to provide guidance to your clients as you help them work through their infant’s oral function challenges.

Abstract:

Recent biomechanical analysis of tongue movements during breastfeeding has illuminated how healthy infants use their tongues to produce subatmospheric (negative) pressures and move milk in the mouth for swallowing. This talk reviews normal tongue kinematics during breastfeeding and extends this objective analysis to tongue-tied infants before and after frenotomy and briefly discusses the clinical implications of the changes seen in infants with ankyloglossia.

USA Carol Gray, CST, LMT, RYT200

Carol has been a therapeutic bodyworker in Portland, Oregon for over 26 years. She is a retired home birth midwife. She specializes in infant and maternal Craniosacral Therapy.
Carol is convinced that if women are appropriately supported in growing, birthing and nurturing their babies, their lives will improve. When women's lives improve their children's health improves. Healthy children grow up to be healthier adults who create healthier communities and a saner, more peaceful world. Carol believes that when things are out of balance even the smallest intervention can bring about great healing. Our need for it is so great. Carol is passionate about using her CST skills to gently make space in maternal bodies so babies can assume ideal positions for gestation and birth. She is currently developing specialized prenatal yoga classes to support and enhance the maternal bodywork techniques she practices and teaches.

USA Carol Gray, CST, LMT, RYT200
Abstract:

Carol will explain how the sources of tongue and oral dysfunction aren’t always in the mouth. Sometimes the gold is buried elsewhere. She will discuss torques and twists in the body that extend into the floor of the mouth and express themselves as a lack of tongue mobility. She will discuss how fetal lie and restricted fetal mobility cause babies to grow in ways that negatively impact their breastfeeding. These things may masquerade as and/or exacerbate tongue mobility issues disguised as short frenula. Carol will also explain the CST treatment approach for these babies.
