Abstract:

The term “breastfeeding self-efficacy” gets thrown around a lot, but what does it really mean? How do we define it, why is it important and what can we be doing as lactation support providers to empower parents and have a positive impact on breastfeeding self-efficacy? Is there anything that we’re doing in our approach to breastfeeding support that is unintentionally having a negative impact? Does breastfeeding self-efficacy look the same for everyone, and how do we target marginalized communities? These are some of the questions that our experts will be tackling during the discussion with a goal of leaving listeners with concrete changes that they can immediately make to their own practice.

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Delegates will be able to define what breastfeeding self-efficacy is;

Objective 2: Delegates will be able to clearly describe why breastfeeding self-efficacy is important and the consequences of low breastfeeding self-efficacy;

Objective 3: Delegates will be able to identify at least 3 examples of changes they can make to their own practice to help improve their clients’ breastfeeding self-efficacy
