Biography:

Robyn Roche-Paull, RN, BSN, IBCLC, has been working with breastfeeding mothers for over 14 years. She holds Bachelor's degrees in Maternal Child Health and Nursing. Currently, Robyn is a L&D and Postpartum RN at Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center, and also works with AD military mothers as an IBCLC. In addition, Robyn is a Board member of MiLCA (Military Lactation Consultants Association), and the Secretary for TALCA (Tidewater Area Lactation Consultant Association).

Robyn is an energetic and dynamic speaker who brings personal experience combined with evidence-based research to her presentations. Her motivation for speaking is to bring attention to subjects she feels are little understood, and yet affect many women. As a tattooed and pierced IBCLC, Robyn has a personal as well as professional interest in Body Modifications. With the rise in tattooing and piercings by the new generation of breastfeeding mothers, Robyn feels that the topic of Body Modifications and how it relates to breastfeeding, is very relevant.

Robyn lives in Virginia Beach with her husband and 3 school-age children.

Babies, Breasts and Body Mods: Where Body Art and Breastfeeding Collide
In recent years there has been a large increase in the numbers of women obtaining various types of body modifications (such as piercings, tattoos) before, during and after childbearing. Very little has been written to guide health care practitioners in how to counsel new mothers on how various body modifications may impact breastfeeding and vice versa. This presentation will describe the incidence of and motivation for body modifications, how various body mods are performed, and highlight clinical breastfeeding issues that often arise in relation to body mods. A short discourse on the clash of cultures between body modifications and breastfeeding will also be explored.
