Size Does Matter: Large Lactating Breasts Are Important!
The breastfeeding journey for a woman and her baby is very special. Mothers who may be larger-breasted and lactating often have special breastfeeding needs and issues. This online session empowers clinicians with supportive tools to help these women successfully breastfeed. This session will enable clinicians to utilize simple, practical techniques, tips, explore the challenges of larger breasts during lactation. Attendees will develop their advanced breastfeeding counseling skills to manage individual situations and provide the unique support necessary. The research shows that if mothers with above average weight are provided with the appropriate breastfeeding management and support early, their breastfeeding experience will be enhanced and sustained. This sensitive session is designed to aid clinicians in developing their own practical breastfeeding support kit, as well as honing specific skills for a positive outcome when supporting larger breasted women to breastfeed their babies.
