Event description

Description

This one-day seminar provides an opportunity for health professionals to update and expand their knowledge and skills in assisting mothers to establish and maintain breastfeeding. The Australian Breastfeeding Association is Australia's largest breastfeeding information and support service and provides mothers and health professionals with accurate, up-to-date, evidence-based information. The topics to be presented are:

Latest in breastfeeding research, including tongue ties, terminology, thrush and treatment guidelines: Jennifer Turner BPharm, Cert IV in Breastfeeding Education (Counselling)

The current focus of Jennifer's research is the effective support of lactation through the translation of research to practice. Primarily this has involved the development of a lactation support tool for the use of General Practitioners in the treatment of breastfeeding women and their breastfed infants (LactaMap) and the development of a website to begin a conversation towards a global consensus on lactation terminology (LactaPedia).

Part of her presentation will include information on the creation of both of these projects, and how they can be utilised by the audience. Jennifer will also be talking about the cycle of research in breastfeeding, human milk and lactation, and identifying and discussing which areas are receiving the most interest from health professionals at the moment (based on analysis of topic frequency in research databases- Medline and Embase).

Vitamin D and breastfeeding: Sandra Rasmussen RN, IBCLC, Cert IV in Breastfeeding Education (Counselling)

Sandra's presentation will summarise the vitamin D research project, discuss what role vitamin D plays in pregnancy, why women of the South West are vulnerable to vitamin D deficiency and the recommendations for supplementation in pregnancy and for the newborn for those mothers with vitamin D insufficiency.

The preterm infant's breastfeeding journey in the special care nursery: Julie Williams RN, Mid Cert, B AppSc (Nursing), Grad Cert Clinical Nursing (NICU), IBCLC, Breastfeeding Counsellor

Julie’s presentation will explore the experiences of mothers in establishing their milk supply and breastfeeding after preterm birth, as well as the preterm infant’s abilities, developmental and physical challenges that impact the ability to breastfeed. Barriers and strategies for supporting breastfeeding in the Special Care Nursery setting will be described. Julie uses published evidence as well as her considerable clinical experience to inform her presentation.

Supporting the breastfeeding preterm baby after discharge from the neonatal unit: Sharon Perrella PhD, GradCertNsg (Child & Family Health Nursing), PGradDipClinNsg (Neonatal Intensive Care), MSc, RN RM

Sharon is a registered nurse, midwife, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and previous Australian Breastfeeding Association Breastfeeding Counsellor. With a background in neonatal intensive care nursing, she completed a PhD with the Hartmann Human Lactation Research Group at UWA, where she now works as a Research Associate. Sharon will provide an overview of feeding patterns and challenges faced by mothers and their preterm infants after discharge from hospital, and will discuss strategies for supporting them in the community

Food sensitivities, lactose intolerance and reflux in the breastfed baby: Joy Anderson AM BSc (Zoology), GradDipMedTech, BSc (Nutrition), PostGradDipDiet, IBCLC, Cert IV Breastfeeding Education (Counselling and Community).

Joy's presentation will briefly cover a range of issues related to maternal diet and the effects on the breastfed infant, when there appears to be a sensitivity in the infant. This will include food allergy, food-chemical intolerance, lactose intolerance, FODMAP malabsorption as well as symptoms of infant reflux. It will dispel some myths and outline the current scientific evidence related to these areas and provide some directions for health professionals to pursue to assist with these issues.
