GOLD Lactation Alumni Presentations 2017
Kick off the year with 3 fantastic GOLD Learning Alumni Speakers.
Every year, we invite back three speakers from our GOLD Lactation Conference to present on new and emerging topics. Originally held as live webinars, the recordings are now available to be accessed online. It was an exciting day for our delegates who had the opportunity to delve deeper into case studies and new discoveries, and expand their knowledge and clinical skills. Kay Hoover will be asking you to put your detective hat on as she presents some unusual case studies (so interesting!), Barbara Wilson-Clay will be providing an in depth look at newborn assessment (an essential skill!) and Jane Morton will be sharing her wisdom and looking at the impact of teaching hand expression in the first hour as a way to prevent breastfeeding challenges.

Topic: First Touch, First Food, First Hour …in a mother’s hands - [View Abstract]
Objective 1: Discuss why first hour hand expression could provide mothers with a skill during a time sensitive period to potentially prevent complications which lead to early termination of breastfeeding. Objective 2: Discuss the salient science demonstrating the time sensitive nature of preventing complications with A, B and C and the supportive science behind hand expression of colostrum. Objective 3: Discuss how hand expression could be encouraged as a useful and natural part of first hour breastfeeding.
The risk of early termination of breastfeeding typically relate to complications with a) attachment, b) breastmilk production, or c) the caloric intake of the infant. Simply put, A, B and C. Could hand expression taught in Labor and Delivery to every mother reduce early termination and the health, financial and emotional morbidity associated with breastfeeding complications in both low and high risk infants? This presentation will examine this question, focusing on the purpose of teaching early hand expression, the available science and the practice of integrating this technique into first hour care.
Barbara Wilson-Clay has been in private practice in Austin, Texas since 1987 specializing in difficult breastfeeding cases. She co-founded the Texas Chapter of Healthy Mothers/Healthy Babies and the Texas Breastfeeding Coalition. In 1998 she helped found the non-profit Mothers Milk Bank at Austin, and retired from the (volunteer) board of directors as Vice President after 10 years of service. She has been a volunteer lobbyist in the Texas legislature during each legislative session since 1993, and helped pass the landmark Right to Breastfeed in Public bill in 1995 and a bill to provide pumping accommodations for public employees not covered by the Affordable Care Act in 2015. She provides corporate consulting services to Apple Computer. Barbara’s research and commentaries have been widely published. She has participated in midwifery training at local Austin birthing centers and her book, The Breastfeeding Atlas, is widely used to train midwives and health workers all over the world.
Topic: Looking Closely at The Baby - [View Abstract]
Topic: Maternal & Infant Assessment for Breastfeeding: Essential Concepts for Midwives - [View Abstract]
Objective 1: Identify muscle tone as an important predictor of breastfeeding ability in neonates Objective 2: Identify and discuss torticollis as an issue that may impair breastfeeding ability. Objective 3: Describe the effect of oro-facial structural anomalies on breastfeeding.
Clinical management of the breastfeeding mother and infant begins with accurate assessment of the issues that are affecting normal function. While breastfeeding is a dyadic activity, this presentation focuses on the infant. Specifically, the learner is invited to look closely at the individual baby, to observe facial tone and structure, and to identify any anomalies or restrictions in range-of-motion (such as those resulting from torticollis) that may negatively impact ability to breastfeed. Videos and photos will demonstrate both normal and abnormal presentations. Interventions will be proposed to assist infants who are unable to breastfeed so that they may continue to receive human milk, ideally from their own mothers, with an eventual goal of breastfeeding, if possible.
For over 30 years, Kay Hoover has been assisting breastfeeding mothers and their babies in a variety of settings and capacities. She began working as a lactation consultant in private practice in 1985. She has also worked in hospital settings, not only as a provider of lactation services to postpartum mothers and their babies, but also as a trainer and educator for hospital nurses. In addition to her work with hospital staff, she has educated maternal and child health workers through her job with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, taught prenatal breastfeeding classes to pregnant families in various settings and college courses at The Pennsylvania State University. Most recently she designed and taught a Lactation Consultant Training program for aspiring lactation consultants. Kay has authored several articles and book chapters, and she co-authored The Breastfeeding Atlas. Kay has lectured widely, at both national and international conferences. She also served on the board of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners for six years. She and her husband, Charlie, are the parents of three breastfed sons and have three breastfed grandsons.
Topic: When there is no research to back practices: Being life-long learners - [View Abstract]
Objective 1: Describe the symptoms, treatment and possible long term complications for 3 unusual complications of breastfeeding Objective 2: List key warning signs that a breastfeeding issue may be serious and identify when to refer to other care providers Objective 3: Explain the importance of emotional support, follow up and careful charting when working with unusual breastfeeding situations.
Advanced Breastfeeding Case Reports will cover 4 unusual situations in a format that will allow you to use your skills to discover the ultimate outcome. One part of the excitement of our field is being detectives. These 4 cases will challenge your detective skills.
