Promoting Self-Management of Breast and Nipple Pain for Women During Breastfeeding

September means back to school, and it's the perfect time to brush up on your skills and knowledge about the management of pain during breastfeeding. On September 9th, 2019 we are excited to offer a free presentation with Dr. Ruth Lucas titled "Promoting Self-Management of Breast and Nipple Pain for Women During Breastfeeding". This presentation offers an exciting look at the randomized controlled trial that Dr. Lucas and her team recently conducted to look at the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of a breastfeeding self-management (BSM) intervention for breast and nipple pain during breastfeeding.

Learn more about the mechanism of pain during breastfeeding including the genetic risk for alterations in pain sensitivity, the relationship between breast and nipple pain and breastfeeding self-efficacy and maternal mood, and new information about a successful intervention to promote self-management of pain during breastfeeding. We look forward to seeing you online!

Watch Live on September 9th!

Despite 90% of women experiencing breast and nipple pain during breastfeeding, mothers rarely receive adequate knowledge and skills for breastfeeding pain self-management and cease breastfeeding. Our randomized control trial (RCT) pilot study tested the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of a breastfeeding self-management intervention (BSM) on breast and nipple pain and breastfeeding outcomes. Sixty women were recruited after delivery and completed survey measures of pain and breastfeeding outcomes, pain sensitivity testing and a biological sample to assess genetic risk for pain at baseline. Both groups completed pain and breastfeeding outcomes surveys via texting links using REDCap 7.4. Women in the intervention group received biweekly nurse-lead texting and cloud-based educational modules addressing breast and nipple pain and breastfeeding challenges. The BSM intervention was acceptable and sustainable for 94% of the women who continued to breastfed to 6 weeks. Acute breast and nipple pain at 1 and 2 weeks were significantly reduced and was associated with pain sensitivity polymorphisms, suggesting a genetic risk profile of pain-associated breastfeeding cessation.
