Amber McCann is an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) whose current interests involve connecting with new families through social media channels and teaching others in her profession to do the same. After maintaining a busy private practice in the Washington DC suburbs and working with an innovative model of care at the Breastfeeding Center of Pittsburgh, she now provides marketing and communications guidance for a number of birth and breastfeeding organizations. When she’s not furiously tweeting or watching terrible reality TV, you can find her eating her way through all of the fantastic restaurants in her new hometown of Pittsburgh and snuggling her three children.

Jeanette McCulloch, IBCLC, has been combining communications work and women’s health advocacy for more than 20 years. She is a co-founder of BirthSwell, which is improving infant and maternal health - and the way we talk about birth and breastfeeding - through strategic communications and social media. She is a board member of Citizens for Midwifery, and is active in local, statewide, and national birth and breastfeeding advocacy projects.


Abstract:

In this presentation, we will learn about the unique values, communication styles, learning preferences, and buying habits of Millennials. We’ll also address some common friction points between Millennials and other generations, with the goal of developing a self-awareness that can help us provide the best possible care.


We will also learn how to apply our knowledge of Millennial values and communications styles to understanding how we can best find Millennials as clients, teach in the way they best learn, and provide information and care in a way that reaches Millennials where they are at.

Abstract:

Healthcare professionals, particularly those in the lactation field, are known for providing care that is emotionally, physically, and mentally taxing. Providing care as lactation professionals during a pandemic has driven many to experience compassion fatigue. This phenomenon impacts one’s personal health in a myriad of ways and also has a significant impact on how one provides empathetic care to families. The current communication model for providing empathetic care in lactation is steeped in the patriarchal model, which actually suppresses empathy. This presentation will help health care providers identify signs of compassion fatigue and provide tools for self-assessment. Additionally, attendees will learn how to apply a natural empathetic model to their lactation/ IBCLC practice to protect their personal health and promote a more supportive way to engage with their families.

United States Stephanie Carroll, MBA, IBCLC, CLC, CLS
Abstract:Appalachia - the physical region along the Appalachian mountains, stretching from southern New York to northern Alabama, is often described as simply an area on a map of the United States. However, Appalachia is a separate entity and culture from the rest of the country in many ways. Breastfeeding trends and attitudes can be quite different in this area, and we notice a much lower rate of initiation and duration rates that coincide with these cultural attitudes.

The issue of lower breastfeeding rates in Appalachia goes beyond poverty – as many women in the region are willing to travel out of the area to receive good care. Why isn’t access to care easier to obtain in these rural areas? Why are women getting most of their prenatal education from their family members – making much of the education outdated and incorrect? Why have these women lost trust in their healthcare providers that are local?
The answers to these question reverts back to two major conclusions:

  1. Women are still considered second class in Appalachia and;
  2. Many healthcare providers do not understand Appalachian culture in order to serve them in the best way possible.

This presentation will discuss: a. What these specific barriers are; b. How we, as health professionals, can approach these barriers; c. How to help to create a new culture trend; and d. How to empower Appalachian women to take hone of their healthcare – specifically their birth and breastfeeding journey.

Abstract:

The prevention and early treatment of diseases is part of a Speech and Language Therapist's working field. The question is, at what point can SL Therapy have a preventative influence, what are the advantages of early consultations and treatments and what significance does a nursing and lactation consultation have in this context. Asha and Fletcher (2005, S.1) called a SL Therapist and a Lactation Consultant a "Baby's feeding dream team", so the combination of these two professions might be a good way to facilitate difficult breastfeeding relationships and reduce SL disorders over the years.

Breastfeeding is the physiological way to feed a baby. It supports the Mother-Child-Bond and sets the foundation for the undisturbed organic, sensorial, motoric, cognitive, oral and social development. If there is a problem with the ingestion of food (oromotor dysfunction or dysphagia), the topic of breastfeeding tends to move to the background. But what if breastfeeding can be used as part of the therapy? Promoting early SLT and by supporting the breastfeeding and preventing the use of artificial teats, which can have a negative influence especially on the oromotor and muscle development, the outcome might improve.

Abstract:

Warm and empathic bedside manner is a lost art in provider-patient interactions. Be it time constraints, systemic limitations, lack of trust or training, the disconnect is apparent and the consequences are grave. In this talk, lactation support providers have an opportunity to learn how to be intentional in their approach to care in a way that honors the patient and their needs while also meeting them where they are. This talk will consider attitude, cultural, language, and other factors that might have traditionally impeded communication or relational connection in order to get to the heart of drawing lines of trust and respect between Patient and provider.
