Abstract:

The body’s ability to process sensory information provides the basis of all function. Interestingly, our most foundational sense of movement is often overlooked as a component of lactation support. In this presentation, we will tie together research in neurology, primitive reflexes, mental health, and sensory integration to demonstrate the significant impact vestibular function has on the quality of lactation and infant/caregiver relationships. Participants will enhance their observational skills and explore ways to provide support for body/breastfeeding dyads using a vestibular processing perspective. Experiential activities will offer participants the opportunity to play with movement and reflect on personal experiences to enhance self-awareness and compassionate care.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will define the interpersonal and neurobiological functions of the vestibular system.

2. Participants will develop their observational skills to identify how vestibular processing may be playing a role in the quality of feeding in the body/breastfeeding dyad.

3. Participants will describe vestibular strategies to support relationships and development in body/breastfeeding dyads.
