Anatomy of Breastfeeding (Gerner, May 22, 2021 Webinar)
NOW AVAILABLE VIA LIVE WEBINAR OR LIVE ON CAMPUS!
Live webinars now satisfy California Board requirements for live CE. See DCA Waiver DCA-20-63 for regulatory details.
Breastfeeding is best for your baby. We all know it.
Learn to identify cranial, spinal, muscular and dural imbalances relating to breastfeeding as well as how to specifically address them. Gain current research to validate your work. Become familiar with the scope of other birth professionals in order to collaborate, gain referrals and provide the overall best care for your clients.
This all-day session is designed to teach you to UNDERSTAND the infant anatomy/physiology and how the pieces affect the whole. You will learn to identify structural issues in the baby, specific anatomy to explain those issues; and how to either correct these issues or to refer to the appropriate care provider. You will also learn about the breastfeeding world as a whole; allowing you to speak the same language as your patients and other providers, thereby establishing yourself as an integral part of the team.
Our goal in sharing this seminar with you is to build a bridge between the birth/lactation professional and the therapist; thereby creating skilled caregivers and allowing confident referrals for that care.
