This course contains a series of lectures and video's collected over a time period of 10 years. The course starts with an overview of Biological or "laid Back" breastfeeding with discussion of why this is physiologically correct for the infant. The balloon latching, is useful when teaching staff about the techniques for a deeper latch and prevention of sore nipples. Special considerations show problem management for the client with anatomical considerations. The Role Play Demonstrations are a walk thru of a case with correct and incorrect responses and are great for those new to the field. The video, Helping a Mother to Breastfeed lets us see an infant in shut down, placing a baby on its back, and lack of more current techniques.
These courses are intended for existing International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC's) looking for Lactation Continuing Education Recognition Points (LCERP's) towards re-certification by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE).
