Abstract:

When a breastfeeding mother consults because of chronic, deep breast pain, we feel weak at the knees. Often these mothers have been to several specialists and nothing has worked for them. Is it mastitis? Thrush? Referred pain from an inadequate latch? Emotional issues? Or is it all of the above, and even more? In this presentation we will learn to do an in-depth clinical history and to use an holistic model for a systematic management of chronic breast pain, so we can offer these mothers more efficient solutions – and better counselling.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Participants will be able to describe a detailed history and assesment of the mother´s pain, to rule out different causes;

Objective 2: Participants will be able to describe various new approaches to chronic breast pain and the evidence behind them;

Objective 3: Participants will be able to discuss an holistic point of view on management of breastfeeding pain.
