Program Description

We are excited to present a day-long seminar focused on supporting families in getting the mental health and breastfeeding help that they need to thrive.

The first half of the day will focus on the special needs of babies in the NICU and their parents. Our expert speaker will provide crucial information on the psychological process of becoming a parent, infant/parent attachment, and best practices for caring for families in the NICU setting.

After lunch, a lively panel discussion with lactation and mental health professionals will illuminate the process of working as a team to provide a safety net for new families facing mental health challenges.

Our final talk will enhance your knowledge of medications commonly used in treating mothers with postpartum mood disorders who desire to breastfeed.

Program Objectives

Following the didactic presentations, participants will be able to:

-Describe the importance of breast milk for infants and parents in the NICU;

-Explain how the discharge process from the NICU impacts family functioning and emotions;

-Explain how lactation consultants and mental health professionals can work together to protect new families; and

-Describe language needed for talking to a new mother about serious mental illness.
