The Outpatient Breastfeeding Champion Training

05/09/2015 - 10:44am
US/Central

The Milk Mob is a nonprofit dedicated to breastfeeding education for outpatient breastfeeding supporters. Our Outpatient Breastfeeding Champion Training program is a 16 hour curriculum that teaches office staff and any other outpatient breastfeeding supporters how to answer the most common breastfeeding questions that a breastfeeding mother and her family have.
In addition, the Breastfeeding Champion Training Program teaches the following skills:
• Telephone triage using breastfeeding triage tools designed for use with electronic med records
• Evaluation of infant positioning and latch
• Evaluation and instruction on breast pump use
• Measurement of pre-post feeding weights for infants
• Assessment of infant growth using standard growth curves
• Counseling the breastfeeding mother

Although this training was originally designed for primary care office nurses, a wide variety of community breastfeeding supporters have found it rewarding, including dietitians, doulas, midwives, WIC peer counselors, medical assistants, licensed practical nurses, medical social workers, health professional students (nursing, medicine, pharmacy), medical interpreters, and medical providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants).
Each Breastfeeding Champion trainee who finishes the 16 hour course and completes a course evaluation will receive:
1. a Milk Mob Breastfeeding Champion certificate. This certificate is valid for 7 years, after which time we will encourage Breastfeeding Champions to re-certify.
2. Accreditation- 15 contact hours and 12.5L CERPS
3. A three year membership to The Milk Mob, which includes our listserv for ongoing breastfeeding education, updates on our triage tools, and new breastfeeding education handouts.

This course has an instruct-the-instructor model. If you are an IBCLC with experience & knowledge on management of breastfeeding dyads beyond the first year, and you enjoy teaching breastfeeding to groups of enthusiastic learners, check out The Milk Mob for more information on becoming a Milk Mob instructor.
