Small bites for big impact: bringing lactation education into the antepartum visits

Description

It is advised by the Center for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and the American Academy of Pediatrics that babies are breastfed exclusively until age six months and continue to breastfeed up to age two and beyond. Variance across delivery location means that the CNM/CM cannot count on inpatient lactation consultants to provide breastfeeding education. Having the care team continue to reinforce the benefits of breastfeeding throughout pregnancy increases breastfeeding rates/confidence. However, the details of how to educate families on breastmilk benefits, latch, and common struggles is often not taught in universally taught in midwifery education. This presentation serves to provide an outline of how to incorporate lactation education into office visits in small bite-sized chunks of five minutes or less with the goal of increasing parental confidence in establishing a positive breastfeeding relationship.
