#thestruggleisreal: How to Build Understanding and Empathy with Millennial Families
United States Amber McCann, IBCLC
       Jeanette McCulloch, IBCLC


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.

Objective 1: Develop a better understanding of common communication challenges
Objective 2: Identify the tools needed to better understand and communicate with mothers and fathers
Objective 3: Learn how communication can be used to improve community engagement outcomes and breastfeeding goals


Abstract:

The word communication comes from the Latin root word meaning “shared” as in a shared language. However, we often find that different practitioners—doctors, nurses, IBCLCs, etc.—each have their own “language”, which is often not the language of mothers and fathers. How do we actually develop a “shared” language? What are the tools needed to better understand the “speak” of mothers in your community? This presentation will outline the challenges of current common communication efforts, highlight best practices from across the U.S. and explain critical cultural nuances of words and communication techniques for mothers and fathers. It will offer a virtual toolkit for understanding the “language” of local parents and how to quickly start speaking that language to improve community engagement outcomes and breastfeeding goals.
