Abstract:

For over 20 years, Dr Lisa Amir has been seeing breastfeeding women with nipple and breast pain and infections. As a medical student she was taught that most clinical diagnoses are made by taking a careful history. Allowing the patient to tell their own story, while asking pertinent questions, usually reveals the likely cause of the problem. Careful physical examination, and occasional use of investigations, confirm the diagnosis. Using case studies from her breastfeeding medicine practice, Lisa demonstrates how to ask the right questions to correctly diagnose and treat nipple and breast problems. She will present case studies including mastitis, recurrent mastitis, breast abscess, and nipple and breast candida infection, and also discuss rare and unusual causes of nipple and breast pain and infection.

Abstract:

The gag reflex is usually situated far back in the infant’s mouth to allow them to bring the nipple almost to the junction of hard palate and soft palate. However, certain babies present a very sensitive and hyperactive gag reflex and which causes gagging more easily. For these babies, a good, deep latch can stimulate this gag reflex. In order to avoid gagging, infants will develop a shallow latch taking less breast tissue into the mouth. This can result in low milk transfer, painful feedings for the mother and a possible decline in milk supply. This presentation will assist the lactation professional in utilizing various approaches to avoid undesired consequences of hyperactive gag reflex in a breastfed infant, and will ensure that they have the skills necessary to work with families facing this feeding challenge. Veronique will explain methods of desensitizing the gag reflex, using modified position and latch techniques, and maintaining milk supply. As part of this presentation, Veronique will take the listener through relevant case studies encountered in her work as a private practice IBCLC.

Abstract:

Insulin plays a major role in lactation, yet our understanding of how it works has not been well understood. As diabetes rates soar, so do questions on how insulin problems may impact lactation. New research is starting to shed light on these questions, opening both our understanding and our ability to work more proactively with affected mothers. This session will examine the role of insulin, our newest understandings, implications for mother and strategies to support mothers at risk.

Abstract:When families are struggling with true low milk production, clinical care can be complicated. Does the problem stem from the parent? From, the baby? Or, most commonly, a combination of both? This presentation helps health care providers understand the possible causes of true low milk production and how to identify them. We will then spend most of our time reviewing what might be done to help resolve the problem. Helping families understand the possible solutions and create a plan is key for them to be able to reach their infant feeding goals.

Abstract:One of the most prevalent breastfeeding problems worldwide is perceived insufficient milk production. The perception of not having enough milk is one of the top reasons for premature weaning and/ or supplementation. Lack of prenatal breastfeeding education, misinterpretation of normal newborn behavior and the ignorance of most healthcare providers concerning lactation leaves lactating individuals confused and unsure of their ability to nourish their babies with their milk. This presentation will explore the myriad of reasons behind the perception of insufficient milk production, address the education gaps for families and healthcare providers and give lactation supporters tools to empower families to reach their breast/ chestfeeding goals.

Abstract:

Sometimes lactation starts off robustly and continues well, other times it does not. Sometimes it starts off poorly and builds well, other times it never reaches full steam. When milk production experiences change from one baby to the next, it is difficult to understand why. This talk reframes the conversation about milk production in a way that helps capsulize the impact of various factors on the course of lactation.

Abstract:

Background: Use of lanolin has become a cultural norm while the evidence is conflicting on its safety and efficacy. Little to no evidence is available on the relationship between lanolin and infection.
Methods: This is a feasibility study, using case control retrospective chart review, examining lanolin use and the development signs and symptoms of nipple or breast infection in breastfeeding mothers with nipple pain. Fungal infection versus bacterial infection was suspected according to the corresponding effective treatment.
Results: Lanolin users were suspected to have a 62% infection rate, as compared to non-lanolin users at 18%, odds ratio 7.5 (2.4-23.4). Though not significant, fungal infection may have been more frequent than bacterial infection based on effective corresponding treatment.
Conclusion: A randomized control trial is called for to determine if frequent lanolin use increases the risk of nipple or breast infection.

Abstract:

One of the most common disorders seen in pregnancy today falls into the realm of “hypertensive disorders of pregnancy” occurring in 12-22% of pregnancies. Understanding the classification and management of this population of patients will allow for better care and improved outcomes. Not only do these disorders account for 17% of maternal mortality in the United States but also account for one of the leading causes of premature birth which increases neonatal morbidity and mortality. National and International organizations have developed guidelines for the management of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy to reduce maternal mortality. These organizations include the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG), National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), and Society for Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC). This presentation will review some of the guidelines developed and the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to the management of patients with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
