Abstract:

Can events from childhood influence a woman’s current mothering experience and her health and well-being? Yes, they can, but they don’t have to be the blueprint for the rest of her life. This session provides an overview of the latest research on the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences; their impact on breastfeeding; how they can affect a woman’s body, mind and spirit; and what she can do to cope.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe the different types of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)

Objective 2: Identify the long-term effects of ACEs in general, and describe how past abuse may present in a breastfeeding woman

Objective 3: Identify vulnerable times and what might help an individual mother to breastfeed
