The Anatomy of Breastfeeding Lecture Pack

Do you recognize physical barriers to a baby’s ability to breastfeed but are not able to understand or identify the problem? The course is designed to help you to identify cranial, spinal, muscular and dural imbalances relating to breastfeeding. Gain current research to validate the Structural/Function aspect of practice. Learn about the scope of other birth professionals in order to collaborate and provide the overall best care for your clients. This course is designed to teach you to UNDERSTAND the infant anatomy/physiology and how the pieces affect the whole. You will learn to identify structural issues in the baby, specific anatomy to explain those issues; and to, ideally make referals to the appropriate care provider. Learn about the long-term neurological impact of structure/function pathology. Our goal in sharing this class with you is to build a bridge between the birth/lactation professional and the therapist; thereby creating skilled caregivers and allowing confident referrals for that care.

Introductions and Establishing the Value of Integration
U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA

Dr. Gerner has been a Maternity and Pediatric Specialist in private practice for over 17 years with an additional focus on functional infant cranial work. She teaches other professionals to support breastfeeding across the USA and internationally. She is a wife, mother of 3 grown children, and lives in Northern CA with her husband and their 2 rescued dogs.

1. Describe specific nutritional benefits of breastmilk vs. formula feeding.

2. Describe the presence and origins of infant structural imbalance and it’s implications on breastfeeding dysfunction.

3. Explain the importance of an integrative approach to care.

U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA
Abstract:

Breast is best! We all know that; however, often parent and child struggle so much at the beginning that breastfeeding either isn’t possible or the parent becomes discouraged and gives up. When feeding challenges occur, sometimes the problem is not with the mother’s technique, but rather with the baby himself- barriers within the alignment and tone of his body causing abnormal function and preventing normal breastfeeding. There can also be tethered oral tissues present (tongue or lip ties) causing even more dysfunction. This presentation focuses on: (1) why breastfeeding is best- nutritionally and neurologically; (2) The cause of imbalance- The birth process; (3) the importance of the integrative collaboration of therapists- i.e. the LC, DDS, chiropractor and/or cranial therapist.

Nitty Gritty Anatomy: The Cranium, Supporting Structure and the Muscle Layer
U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA

Dr. Gerner has been a Maternity and Pediatric Specialist in private practice for over 17 years with an additional focus on functional infant cranial work. She teaches other professionals to support breastfeeding across the USA and internationally. She is a wife, mother of 3 grown children, and lives in Northern CA with her husband and their 2 rescued dogs.

1. Describe the infant cranial anatomy and how they interact among each unit.

2. Describe the muscles relating to breastfeeding and how they are connected to the structure.

3. Provide clinical examples of pathology.

U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA
Abstract:

Understanding the specific infant anatomy related to feeding function can unlock the mystery of why the baby is struggling and how to correct the problem. You will see very comprehensive video demonstration of normal function and easy to understand diagrams of common subluxation patterns. This presentation focuses on: (1) The infant cranial and spinal anatomy piece by piece and how it all interacts together; (2) The main muscles of breastfeeding function; (3) clinical presentations of common feeding challenges explained through the anatomy; and (4) correlations into other common infant pathologies of torticollis and Otitis Media.

Cranial Nerves, the Dural System and Neurology
U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA

Dr. Gerner has been a Maternity and Pediatric Specialist in private practice for over 17 years with an additional focus on functional infant cranial work. She teaches other professionals to support breastfeeding across the USA and internationally. She is a wife, mother of 3 grown children, and lives in Northern CA with her husband and their 2 rescued dogs.

1. Describe the specific cranial nerves relating to breastfeeding and their location.

2. Explain the consequences of compression and pathology.

3. Describe the anatomy and function of the dural system.

U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA
Abstract:

Biology often explains it all. Beyond the cranial and Musculo-skeletal system, the cerebral spinal/dural system and the cranial nerves play a huge roll not only in feeding function, but in the overall physical and cognitive health of the child. These systems are reciprocal- the structural system can cause neurological impairment; and likewise, neurological impairment can lead to structural imbalance and weak muscles. Many different therapeutic disciplines acknowledge this relationship in different ways. This presentation focuses on: (1) the cranial nerves specific to breastfeeding function; (2) The dura and CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) systems; (3) clinical presentations: Failure to thrive, colic, KISS/KIDD (4) Studies and articles from various approaches of care; and (5) the consequences of Cesarean Section on CSF and neuropathology.

Tying It All Together- Consequences of Pathology and Ideal Collaboration
U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA

Dr. Gerner has been a Maternity and Pediatric Specialist in private practice for over 17 years with an additional focus on functional infant cranial work. She teaches other professionals to support breastfeeding across the USA and internationally. She is a wife, mother of 3 grown children, and lives in Northern CA with her husband and their 2 rescued dogs.

1. Explain breastfeeding dysfunction/symptoms correlated with the structure/function origins.

2. Describe the consequences of Tethered Oral tissues and the ideal care team.

3. Explain the importance of an Integrative Care approach to breastfeeding support.

U.S.A Dr. Lynn Gerner, D.C., FICPA
Abstract:

How does it all fit together- the cranium, the spine, the muscles, the cranial nerves and the dural system? In addition to their involvement in breastfeeding function, there can be serious long-term consequences to the child if pathology is not corrected. Learn why IBCLCs and other medical professionals recommend a collaborative approach to care for the very best outcomes. This presentation focuses on: (1) Sphenobasilar dysfunction and hydrocephaly; (2) neurological consequences of pathology and adaptation; (3) breastfeeding challenges from the LC scope correlated to structures; (3) tethered oral tissues- Importance of a collaborative approach; (4) best practice collaboration from the viewpoint of an IBCLC.
