Breastfeeding Beyond All Obstacles: Breastfeeding Families and Complicated Mastitis
Breastfeeding is a human act, typical of our species and as biopsychosocial beings, it is surrounded by obstacles inherent to the experience and determined by our environment. Breastfeeding in western societies is challenging under normal circumstances; when everything goes as expected. However, in cases where complications such as abscessed mastitis arise, which seem to be the maximum expression of everything that can go wrong in a breastfeeding history: pain, frustration, surgical interventions, use of antibiotics, slow weight gain, etc ; It is where the medical indication to do without breastfeeding frequently arises, as if it were just a practice that could be easily replaced by another feeding method. In this presentation you will learn the expanded perspective, the challenges and fears of a family that breastfed, through complicated mastitis and managed to restore their Lactation history, through the informed accompaniment of a pro-lactation team of obstetrician and IBCLC pediatrician.
