Three days of lecture and practicum to elevate your practice as an IBCLC
Are you finding that there are cases in your practice where nothing seams to be quite working?
Do you have lots of "tough babies" that don't seem to respond to traditional methods of suck training?
Spend time learning with your colleagues at a weekend in a beautiful setting and high-level learning courses aimed specifically at IBCLCs. There's nothing as effective as the in-person exchange of information. The days are filled with strategies for intake, assessment, clinical photography and videography for documentation and education, nutrition, infant reflexes, identifying and understanding when and where to refer babies with structural dysfunction, and more.
After the course, you'll be added to our list of providers on our resource page, and given access to a closed Facebook group for sharing of resources and information long after the training has concluded.
"...taking this course was the BEST thing I have done for my business and the clients I serve."...Kristen Davis, IBCLC.
"I have profound gratitude for the Masters Class. My ability to help dyads has sharpened because of it."
"Thank you all so much! Taking the class and having the cards has revolutionized my practice."...Ana M Hill, IBCLC
"This was one of the best conferences I've attended."
"You should charge more. It is totally worth every penny!"...Barbara A Kalmen, IBCLC
"This course should be a requirement for any IBCLC. Whether you are practicing in an in-patient setting or as a private practice IBCLC in the community, the classes included will fill in many gaps in traditional lactation education. Despite my own years of experience in allopathic pediatric medicine, I learned a tremendous amount of actionable material. The course covers much more than how to work with a dyad experiencing tethered oral tissue."...Chaya Lighten, PA, IBCLC
COURSE OVERVIEW: Join us for 3 days of lecture and practicum to elevate your practice as an IBCLC! Come together with your colleagues for three full days as you participate in a high-level Master Class directed specifically towards IBCLCs. There’s no more effective environment for learning than the in-person exchange of information with a group of experienced colleagues. Bolstered by a presentation of the supportive theory and research, the days are filled with strategies for intake, assessment, clinical documentation, anatomy and physiology, nutrition, infant reflexes, identifying and understanding when and where to refer babies with structural dysfunction, developing a collaborative team and integrating all of these resources in attaining functional breastfeeding competency. The course stressed a collaborative assessment of neurologic and biomechanical function as it affects breastfeeding, through infant reflexes and a demonstration as to how the IBCLC and manual therapist can utilise reflexes and facilitate their integration through movement. With successful completion of the three-day Master Class, the experienced IBCLC will be able to define the strategies involved in functional assessment and habilitation of the breastfeeding dyad, educate families accordingly, develop a sustainable and achievable care plan and the capacity to share relevant information with colleagues towards the goal of collaboration and enhanced knowledge in the field of advanced lactation. In addition, the IBCLC will be able to reference a compendium of effective exercises and tools for facilitating oral habilitation, sucking skills and body movement. They will be able to use multiple strategies to confidently educate families on the use and rationale behind the care plan developed for infants with complex feeding difficulties.
OBJECTIVES: • Understand the role that infant feeding plays in the development of the human airway. • Gain a better understanding of anatomy and structure as it relates to breastfeeding. • Learn collaborative assessment of neurologic and biomechanical function as it affects breastfeeding. • Better understand the foundational role infant reflexes play in feeding and development and within the context of the lactation consult. • Recognise the role that trauma can play in inhibition of reflex integration and development. • Develop an increased understanding or oral-motor function as it applies to breastfeeding. • Learn how tongue position impacts breastfeeding and optimal oral development. • Better understand the role of the IBCLC in facilitating collaboration among those professionals involved in assessment, treatment and oral habilitation of the breastfeeding dyad. • Develop an effective toolkit for supporting competent oral function. • Learn strategies to facilitate oral habilitation post tongue-tie release. • Understand how to effectively and ethically communicate associated information and care plans with parents, professionals and colleagues.
