Connecting the Dots Between Increasing Lactation Risk Factors and Suboptimal Breastfeeding Outcomes: A Proactive Approach to Clinical Practice
This one-hour recorded webinar details how mothers’ milk volumes are initiated, built, and maintained throughout the breastfeeding journey. The 2017 WHO guidelines that update the original 10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and their implications for practice changes in birthing facilities are examined. Recent discoveries in lactation science that link infant behavior and maternal physiology to long term breastmilk production are presented. A review of significant maternal health risk factors and trends associated with delayed onset of lactogenesis and/or suboptimal milk production are discussed. Evidence-based technologies and strategies that can positively impact lactation outcomes and integrate current WHO guidelines into clinical practice are offered in the presentation.
