51nzuuynpol.-sx331-bo1-204-203-200-.jpgThe Importance of Dads and Grandmas to the Breastfeeding Mother

 

4-13-17, 1:00 PM EST

Event Length: 1 hr 30 mins

 

Breastfeeding support from fathers and grandmothers can make all the difference to the confidence of a new mother. Conversely, lack of support, often manifested as off-hand remarks about lack of goodness in the milk, or that the baby “never” sleeps, or that there is not enough milk, can undermine a new mother. It is equally challenging for grandmothers to support new mothers, even if they breastfed their babies. The evidence behind recommendations changes, and it can be a minefield for new grandmothers who were breastfeeding 20 or more years ago.

This presentation focuses on how Grandma, Dad, and the new mother can work together to ensure that new mothers reach their breastfeeding goals.

After the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to 

 

  • describe why the support of mothers and fathers is so important to the breastfeeding mother
  • discuss how information on breastfeeding  has changed over the past 20-30 years
  • consider the role of the father of a breastfed baby
  • examine how the family can support a mother who needs medication acutely or chronically when breastfeeding

 

 
Outline and Objectives

 

  • describe why the support of mothers and fathers is so important to the breastfeeding mother
    • how grandmothers and fathers support but can also undermine breastfeeding subtly or actively
    • how others can become the gatekeepers to protect the mother and her baby
    • how they can protect her if she feels vulnerable eg breastfeeding in public, in face of the negativity of others

 

  • discuss how information on breastfeeding  has changed over the past 20-30 years
    • in the 1980a women were told to restrict time at the breast, to feed to a routine, to wean onto solids at 3 months, to stop breastfeeding before a year. Why have these recommendations changed? What is the evidence? Was what we grandmothers did to our children harmful and do we feel guilty?

 

  • consider the role of the father of a breastfed baby
    • if a father doesn’t feed the baby what can he do? How can he spend time with the baby in other ways? Dealing with feelings of jealousy and inadequacy? Skin to skin for Dads and babies is good too

 

  • examine how the family can support a mother who needs medication acutely or chronically when breastfeeding
    • mothers can need medication for a variety of conditions from short term antibiotics to long term treatment for asthma, inflammatory bowel disease etc . What are the risks and benefits of breastfeeding in the presence of drugs?

 

 

 

 

 

Assessment and Treatment of Tongue-tie and Lip Tie: Cognitive Errors, Ethics and the Differential Diagnosis Process.

 

3-30-17 1:00pm EST

Event Length: 1 hr 30 mins


The subject of tongue-tie continues to be controversial, and generates polarization, despite ample research that is currently available. How do cognitive errors play a role? What ethical duty do health practitioners have? Why has differential diagnosis become a “dirty word” concept when it comes to tongue-tie and lip tie? Dr. Hazelbaker explores confirmation and availability bias, two common cognitive errors, as an explanation for the polarized positions regarding tongue-tie and lip tie. She further examines the seven principles of health care ethics as they pertain to assessment and treatment of tongue-tie and lip tie. She then outlines the differential diagnosis process and examines how the current approach to assessment of these conditions violates that process leading to possible over-diagnosis and over-treatment, putting vulnerable babies at risk.

This live event will be recorded and sent to every participant a few days after the event concludes.
