Guided Steps: Creating Plans of Lactation Care
New parents do not anticipate a challenging journey when it comes breast-/chest-feeding. When things do not go as planned, parents are therefore often consumed by fear and uncertainty and look to professionals for support. Being the person guiding the steps of a new, lactating parent creates a challenge. How do you design a care plan which address the concerns of the parent(s) but also allows the parent(s) to act as a member of the team and the expert on what is best for them and their family in their current life circumstances? How do you foster self-efficacy, and self-empowerment in your clients to ensure that your plan of care is feasible and within the capacity of the parent(s)? Learn more about the importance of meeting parents where they are at to create a care plan which is mutual, feasible, and sustainable. This presentation will be a 60-minute Q&A session so bring your questions about how to approach communication and counselling to create a plan of care that really works for your clients and helps them to meet or exceed their infant feeding goals.
