Many postpartum women have a history of childhood abuse. By choosing to breastfeed, they are often making a conscious choice to parent differently than they were parented. Unfortunately, abuse survivors may encounter breastfeeding difficulties that are unique to people who have been abused. Helping Abuse Survivors Breastfeed is a webinar designed to give you practical strategies for assisting these mothers and taking care of yourselves while you do.

She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association in Health and Trauma Psychology, past President of the APA Division of Trauma Psychology, and a member of the Board for the Advancement of Psychology in the Public Interest.

She "officially" retired, but co-chairs the Breastfeeding Coalition of Solano County, which offers monthly breastfeeding updates and opportunities to network. She hosts monthly La Lecha League meetings, and provides breastfeeding education to students of local medical, nursing and dietetics schools, and Public Health programs in the United States and Latin America. As an IBCLC in New Jersey, Missouri and Puerto Rico and later as a Public Health Nurse in California, she has met and learned from mothers whose life experience included sexual violence and trauma and who were trying to breastfeed.

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.

ILCA Webinar: Fundamentals of Lactation Ethics: Top Ten Ways to Stay Legal and Ethical

Type: Webinars | Location: , - USA []
05/23/2016 - 3:00pm
US/Eastern

Fundamentals of Lactation Ethics: Top Ten Ways to Stay Legal and Ethical
Presenter: Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA
Date: 23 May 2016
Time: 3:00 - 4:00pm EDT USA (Click HERE to see your local time)
Credits: 1 E-CERP

Learning Level: Beginner/Intermediate

The major practice-guiding documents for IBCLCs and other breastfeeding helpers tell us the rules. But the challenge comes when ethical questions arise that aren't clearly answered by those documents. Can you advise a family about peer-to-peer milk sharing? Can you meet privacy requirements if you call or text clients on a cell phone? Can you use a photo you found on the Internet for your PowerPoint presentation? This webinar will offer a quick review (for IBCLCs and all breastfeeding helpers) of the major mandatory and voluntary practice-guiding documents. Then we'll count down the top ten ways to assure your work with breastfeeding families remains ethical and legal.

About the Presenter:

Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA, is a lawyer/litigator (since 1983) and private practice IBCLC lactation consultant (since 1997). With plain language and humor, Liz explains how law and ethics affect IBCLCs and other breastfeeding helpers, no matter what their country or work setting. She offers immediate, pragmatic tips to practice ethically, legally, and confidently. She is an Adjunct Professor in Drexel University's Human Lactation Consultant Program (an IBLCE-approved Pathway 2 program), recently served as the President of the International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA), and currently serves on the Boards of the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) and Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). She wrote the only textbook focusing on IBCLC ethics and legal issues, and authored chapters on similar topics in five others texts. She is a well-received writer and lecturer in her field.

Learner Objectives:

Identify three mandatory, and one voluntary, practice-guiding document(s), for an IBCLC
Describe three best practices to protect client/patient privacy when using Internet-based forms of communication
Define how to obtain permission to re-use copyright-protected material
