Why become a certified lactation educator?

Certified Lactation Educators (CLEs) provide evidence based information to the community, families and professionals to encourage an increase in breastfeeding initiation, duration and support. CLEs are found teaching community and hospital based breastfeeding classes, as peer breastfeeding counselors in hospital and public health setting, facilitation support groups, running pump rental stations and providing phone support.

Transform your understanding about what breastfeeding/breastmilk really is:

• An irreplaceable relationship
• A brain developer
• An immune system
• An organ system
• A living tissue

Transform your professional skills

• Increase your doula competencies in the first hours after birth
• Hone your postpartum doula skills
• Learn unique strategies for teaching breastfeeding to families
• Explore adult learning styles
• Enhance your communication skills

Transform yourself

• Take the leap to explore new ways to work with families
• Connect with other women who love working with moms and babies
• Open your mind about new concepts surrounding breastfeeding
• Take the first step to becoming certified as a lactation educator with CAPPA

Concepts covered over the three days include: Lactation Professionals, History of Breastfeeding, Group Process, Learning Styles, Anatomy and Physiology of Breastfeeding, The Importance of Breastmilk and Breastfeeding, Prenatal Support and Breastfeeding issues, Birth's Impact on Breastfeeding, the Hospital Experience, Latch and the Breast Crawl, Skin To Skin, Signs of Successful Feeding, Maternal and Infant Challenges, Medications and Breastmilk, Fathers and Partners, and Curriculum Development.

The CAPPA CLE does not prescribe, treat, nor diagnose breastfeeding related conditions and is trained to refer clients facing circumstances that require this degree of intervention to a qualified professional. The CAPPA 20 Hour CLE course is not an IBCLC exam prep course, nor does the CAPPA CLE training prepare a student to become an IBCLC.

Our second speaker for the remainder of the day will be Dr. Lawrence Kotlow, who is Board Certified in Pediatric Dentistry and a Fellow in the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Kotlow will be speaking on the roll of tethered oral tissues (TOTS), the infant’s tongue and upper lip attachment, which are often overlooked or dismissed as a cause of infant distress and maternal discomfort during breastfeeding. Successful resolution of problems and understanding of these two structures depend on simple, easy and safe methods of diagnosis and treatment.

Our June Speakers are:
Judy Gutowski, BA, IBCLC.
Judy works as a lactation consultant for Mountain View Pediatrics near Pittsburg. Pa. She currently serves on the US Lactation Consultant Association as chairman of the licensure and reimbursement Committee.
Cindy Morris, DNP, MSN,BSN, RN, IBCLC
Cindy has worked as an RN in a variety of hospital settings. She is currently an IBCLC with Excela health in Greensburg, Pa. She is also a professor at Westmoreland Community College. Her doctoral thesis was on The Effect of a Lactation Consultant in a Primary Pediatric Setting on breastfeeding duration and exclusivity rates

Kathleen Abrams MA, MS, CCC-SLP
Kathleen has been a speech pathologist for 46 years and has primarily focused on infants for the last 15 years. She has extensive training in Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) including the full pediatric curriculum.

Katy Linda, IBCLC, RLC
Katy, as a mother of four, has had a variety of breastfeeding experiences. She has been a La Leche League Leader for 10 years and an IBCLC in private practice for 5 years.

TOPICS ARE:
Helping the Late Pre-Term Infant
This talk will distinguish between near term and full term infants and discuss why these differences matter. Judy will address particular issues including: dehydration, hypoglycemia, hypothermia, hyperbilirubina excessive weight loss, hypotonia, respiratory distress, sepsis, and sensory integration dysfunction. Guidelines for dealing with these issues will also be discussed.
IBCLC’s in Pediatric Setting – Does it affect breastfeeding outcomes?
Together Cindy Morris and Judy Gutowski explore access to care for families and show their research demonstrating the value of support to improve breastfeeding outcomes. Cindy’s doctoral thesis examined the effect of providing lactation support when it is offered as the “standard of care” for breastfeeding families in a pediatric outpatient setting. This study evaluated breastfeeding outcomes through one year. Despite widely-documented evidence that supports breastfeeding throughout the first year of life, many mothers quit breastfeeding earlier than intended. This retrospective review examined the effect of a lactation consultant in the pediatric primary care setting on breastfeeding duration and exclusivity rates. Additionally, the study investigated how frequently mothers seek help from the lactation consultant and types of problems presenting in this setting.
Affordable Health Care Begins with IBCLC’s
The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Support Breastfeeding recommended changes to the Health Care System as part of a “society-wide approach to support mothers and babies who are breastfeeding” including greater access to services of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants. This clinical lactation support is necessary to improve breastfeeding duration and intensity. Designation of the IBCLC as the qualification for licensure in the United States will ensure families have access to standardized, high quality practitioners and provide public protection as a valued preventive health service and. Explanations for why the actions are needed and how individuals and groups can advocate for these changes will also be discussed. Licensure may enable reimbursement for IBCLC services facilitating establishment of lactation care for families
Addressing Functional and Structural Issues in Feeding Kathleen and Katy will explore together the various treatments and compensations that could be used when babies aren’t feeding well. Kathleen will show us what she has learned in her extensive experience with babies in using Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) to treat feeding issues. She will show us how to look at the whole body when assessing infants who might need treatment. Katy will address some simple compensations we can suggest when seeing babies that we believe may need further treatment. She will also discuss how to choose the right bottle or pacifier for each baby presenting with problems, including choosing the right bottle when going back to work.
