ILCA Webinar: New Notions in Nursing: How Parents Are Breastfeeding Outside the Box Presenter: Alyssa Schnell, MS, IBCLC

Type: Webinars | Location: , - USA []
10/04/2016
US/Eastern

Learning Level: Intermediate

Traditional definitions of breastfeeding revolve around a mother birthing her baby and then exclusively feeding that child at her breast for the first half year of her baby’s life. For many families, breastfeeding according to this definition just isn’t possible. But that doesn’t mean breastfeeding isn’t possible. It just means we must re-define breastfeeding – expanding what it means to breastfeed in order to meet the growing and changing needs of today’s families. When we allow “breastfeeding” to become nursing, chestfeeding, finger-feeding, and certain ways of bottle-feeding, more parents can breastfeed and more babies can be breastfed. When we allow “breastfeeding” to mean receiving all, some, or no milk at all from baby’s mother, more parents can breastfeed and more babies can be breastfed. When we allow “breastfeeding” to involve non-gestational mothers, fathers, gestational carriers, relatives, friends, and sometimes even strangers, more parents can breastfeed and more babies can be breastfed. This isn’t just theory: real parents are re-defining breastfeeding every day.

About the Presenter:

Alyssa Schnell has been helping parents and babies with breastfeeding for the past 14 years and she has been accredited as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) since 2009. Her private practice, Sweet Pea Breastfeeding Support, provides individual lactation consultations either in person or by phone for parents around the country. Alyssa is also the co-host of the Breastfeeding Outside the Box podcast geared towards families breastfeeding in extraordinary situations. Alyssa enjoys working with all parents and babies, but she has an extra special place in her heart for helping families through adoption and surrogacy to breastfeed their babies. She is the author of Breastfeeding Without Birthing: A Breastfeeding Guide for Mothers Through Adoption, Surrogacy, and Other Special Circumstances. Alyssa is the proud mother of three breastfed children, two by birth and one by adoption.

Learner Objectives:

Describe how breastfeeding has changed over recent years
List 3 ways that lactation specialists can educate, guide, and support parents who are “nursing” in non-traditional ways
Identify families who may not be able to meet current medical and social expectations for breastfeeding
