As lactation professionals, we see clients who are experiencing many challenges during the perinatal period. Clients with eating disorders are uniquely at risk, as are their babies. This presentation will educate the perinatal professional about how eating disorders present in the childbearing year and beyond. It will explore the connection between trauma and disordered eating, and teach how to be a trauma informed provider for eating disordered clients. It will discuss the specific and unique challenges the person with an eating disorder may have during lactation, including postpartum body image, elimination diets, and provider bias. The learner will gain the skills needed to screen for disordered eating and provide culturally humble and appropriate referral for congruent care.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the connection between trauma and eating disorders.

2. Explain how eating disorders present in the perinatal client.

3. Describe lactation specific challenges for clients with eating disorders.

4. Explain the process of screening for eating disorders and make appropriate referrals.
