Julie Matheney, MS, CCC-SLP/IBCLC

  • Speaker Type: GOLD Lactation 2022
  • Country: USA
Biography:

Julie Matheney knew when she was ten years old that she wanted to feed babies for a living. She earned her Masters in speech-language pathology and has worked with feeding and swallowing disorders for over a decade. While most people assume speech therapists teach children who stutter or work on "r's and s's", the bulk of her job is feeding and swallowing as part of a hospital based, rehabilitation team. The same things you speak with, you eat with! Over the past decade working in the NICU, she discovered her passion for working with breastfeeding families and became an IBCLC in 2017. She transitioned out of the hospital in July 2021 and currently works full time in private practice as a lactation consultant in Los Angeles. She enjoys helping the whole family in the feeding process to meet their goals.

Overcoming Challenges to Feeding: Supporting Parents with Physical, Mental or Socioemotional Differences - Part 1
For years we have learned how to support breastfeeding for the infant with differences and disabilities. There is a lack of education and support however for mothers/lactating parents who face these same challenges. Studies show parents with differences and disabilities are less likely to receive adequate prenatal care and breastfeeding assistance compared to those without disabilities. How do we support lactation for parents who have physical, mental, and emotional/social differences? Each type of difference or disability also has specific needs for adaptations, to the environment and to the tools we would use to facilitate position, latch, and lactation success. This session helps participants use critical thinking to ask the right questions, make adjustments to the environment, and create functional plans specific to the individual needs of the parent. The three domains we will be discussing are physical challenges, social/emotional challenges, and the neurodiverse.
