Indonesia Dyah Febriyanti, MD, IBCLC, FABM

Dr. Dyah Febriyanti, MD, IBCLC, FABM is a medical doctor and lactation consultant/ breastfeeding counselor, and a mother living in Jakarta, Indonesia. She has been working in hospitals since she graduated in 2012. She was facing many struggles to succeed breastfeeding her daughter for two years. She has been an IBCLC since 2017. She works with breastfeeding dyads in a lactation team consisting of all lady doctors in outpatient and inpatient care units. Concerning breastfeeding and nutrition in early life, she has published a semi-cookbook about complementary foods for breastfed babies and cooking videos to educate and help mothers feed their babies. She also has been working on scientific writing. She is a member of International Lactation Consultant Association, and a trainer of the Indonesian Society of Perinatology. She also is a Fellow of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (FABM).

1. Describe recent updates about galactocele, particularly the giant ones.
2. Explain the relationship between tongue tie and its impact on the breastfeeding process.
3. Describe the comprehensive treatment for tongue tie's health consequences, including problems requiring surgery.

Indonesia Dyah Febriyanti, MD, IBCLC, FABM

We report the case of a 36-year-old breastfeeding mother who presented with a giant galactocele, a painless lump in the left breast that grew rapidly over 18 days. It is theorized that inadequate breast emptying caused by the baby's tongue tie might have contributed to the galactocele development in the mother. In general, surgical drainage is required to resolve a galactocele, yet the procedure makes it difficult to maintain breastfeeding. In this case, the baby's latch was poor due to ankyloglossia. Inpatient care was coordinated amongst a surgeon, a pediatrician, and lactation specialists (IBCLC). This session will describe the care provided to this dyad which allowed them to continue breastfeeding despite undergoing multiple procedures.

1. Explain the clinical definition and management of acute mastitis.
2. Describe two of the proposed definitions for other types of mastitis.
3. Analyze two current studies on mastitis spectrum physiology and management.


Mastitis has been occurring for as long as breastfeeding itself. It is a very common difficulty in nursing women. For many decades, its diagnosis and management were considered to be straightforward. However, in the last decade new concepts have been put forward, such as dysbiosis, subacute mastitis, and the concept of the mastitis spectrum. In this talk, we will take a look at the scientific evidence (or lack thereof) for these terms and discuss their impact on day to day clinical management.

U.S.A. Lisa Marasco, MA, IBCLC FILCA

Lisa Marasco has been working with breastfeeding mothers for 35 years and has been Internationally Board Certified since 1993. She holds a Master’s degree in Human Development with specialization in Lactation Consulting and was designated a Fellow of ILCA in 2009.

She is employed by WIC of Santa Barbara County while she continues to research, write and speak. In addition, Lisa is affiliated with La Leche League of So. Calif/Nevada, and serves on the Breastfeeding Coalition of Santa Barbara County.

1. Explain the difference between congenital and acquired mammary hypoplasia.
2. List at least 4 potential risk factors/markers for mammary hypoplasia.
3. Describe the 5-point strategy for addressing poor lactation due to suspected mammary hypoplasia.

U.S.A. Lisa Marasco, MA, IBCLC FILCA

Insufficient milk output has many causes; one of the least understood is mammary hypoplasia, under and/or abnormal development of the lactating tissue. In some cases the etiology appears to be genetically predetermined, while in others it is acquired due to environmental, hormonal or other insults prior to or during critical windows of development. It is important to differentiate these causes and their risk markers from incomplete breast changes during pregnancy due to transient external factors that may not repeat during another lactation cycle. This information, along with an understanding of the parent’s infant feeding goals, life situation and emotions, will assist the lactation clinician in developing a supportive and optimized care plan strategy.
