Comments from our previous courses:
"This was one of the best conferences I've attended. I learned so much from each of you, and from many of the participants as well. I knew I would learn things to help with the babies, I didn't know that I would learn things to help myself as well! Thank you all for such a well put-together program. Everything flowed appropriately, the hands on was great, sharing your slides was generous. I would totally recommend this conference, and might even have to repeat it because you taught us so much I can't imagine retaining it all!"...Gail Dittes RNC IBCLC
"This was the capstone educational piece for my profession. It was wonderful to be around professionals who are the top performers in what we do. To be with a tribe of people who "get it" rekindled my passion for helping moms and babies. I have a love of learning and I didn't want to miss a single second of the lectures. I honestly don't know how any IBCLC can practice without taking this course. Without the critical skills taught in this course, we are not doing enough to help our communities."..Jacqueline Kincer, IBCLC
ORAL HABILITATION OF THE BREASTFEEDING DYAD: COURSE OBJECTIVES
By the successful completion of the three-day course, the experienced IBCLC will be able to define the steps involved in functional habilitation of the breastfeeding dyad, educate the family in the steps to accomplish such, create a sustainable and achievable care plan, and be able to share such information with colleagues with the intent and goal of collaboration and enhanced knowledge in the field of advanced lactation.
The experienced IBCLC will be familiar with the anatomy and mechanics of infant facial structure, its role in feeding, and the ability to identify structural dysfunction. The experienced IBCLC will also be able to identify dysfunction in the lactating parent including: milk supply, subconscious feeding compensations made for ineffective nurslings and positioning. The learner will be able to offer various strategies to implement in a sustainable and achievable care plan for the parent to overcome these dysfunctions in their feeding journey. In addition, the learner will be able to competently identify dysfunction in the maternal or infant gut, and explain the role of the microbiome and its significance to the family. They will be able to refer to an appropriate care provider for additional assistance in such cases.
After the training, the experienced IBCLC will be able to reference a compendium of effective exercises and tools for facilitating oral habilitation, sucking and body movement.They will be capable and competent in demonstration for the families and their child(ren). The learner will be able to use multiple strategies to confidently educate families on the use and reasoning behind the care plan developed for infants with complex feeding difficulties.
The learner will be able to assess the knowledge base of their client, develop understandable and digestible explanations of the identified problems, create sustainable care plans outlining achievable goals, and will be able to help the families in their care to feel informed and empowered in their decision-making.
