The Other Breastfeeding Dyad: A Couples’ Weekend for Lactation Consultants and Bodyworkers (& doctors and dentists!)
In this workshop, Jennifer Tow IBCLC, CSOM and Sharon Vallone DC, DICCP will discuss breastfeeding as a barometer for infant competency, learning to observe and assess the breastfeeding dyad through the lens of both the IBCLC and the manual therapist or bodyworker.
Finding a common language allows us to communicate effectively as we collaborate in eliminating the compensations that prevent competent and functional breastfeeding. Oral and postural assessment of dysfunctional feeding patterns, manual assessment and treatments of the infant will be covered, as well as communication skills that facilitate effective collaboration between IBCLC, manual therapist and parents.
Saturday November 9th & Sunday November 10th, 2019, ROCHESTER, NY
Sharon Vallone, DC, FICCP, Jennifer Tow, BFA, MA, IBCLC, RLC, CSOM
