Recorded Live Webinar

  • Outline



The literature examining breastfeeding among healthy mother and infant dyads is well established; however, little is known about the breastfeeding experiences of mothers who have infants with congenital surgical anomalies and are cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit.  Dr. Froh will be presenting the findings from her dissertation study, “Breastfeeding the Infant with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia,” in a three part presentation.  This research is the first to describe the breastfeeding experiences of CDH infant-mother dyads and offers both clinical and research implications for supporting breastfeeding and the provision of human milk for mothers of CDH infants.
