Microbiome Support for the Breast/Chestfeeding Dyad
The billions of unicellular organisms which form a symbiotic relationship with our bodies provide essential functions which regulate, modulate, and maintain homeostasis. The microbiome has an essential role in prompting a proper immune response, maintaining adequate digestion and metabolic function, managing inflammatory status, supporting mental health, and many more functions which are required for good health. Dysbiotic conditions during the perinatal period are common and impact the infant feeding relationship. In this presentation, participants will learn about the functions of the microbiome as it relates to lactation and infant health as well as the consequences of dysbiosis and its impact on lactation/infant feeding. Additionally, participants will learn how to address dysbiotic conditions within their profession’s scope. This presentation provides clinically applicable information and recommendations that participants can apply when providing lactation education and developing care plans.

Navigating PCOS During Lactation: Solution Focused Strategies and Equity in Care
This presentation focuses on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of infertility that affects up to 20% of birthing parents. The symptoms of PCOS, such as insulin resistance, raised levels of androgens, and irregular menses, can also impact lactation outcomes. The presentation will delve into the four types of PCOS and their connection to metabolic function and lactation, as well as provide guidance on interpreting lab results, safe and effective interventions to support milk production, and addressing personal biases that may negatively impact obese parents. The presentation will also examine the impact of ethnicity and socioeconomic status on PCOS risk and explore systemic changes that can improve lactation outcomes for all families, taking into consideration international recommendations and the elimination of explicit and implicit biases.
