The Breastfeeding Symposium has a wonderful balance of practical, hands-on techniques and current medical recommendations. It includes those valuable pharmacology units presented in a way you can really use them in your practice.

 


Featuring presentations on:

  • Breastfeeding as a Population Health Topic

    If the mother and baby are not successful at breastfeeding, how does that effect their long term health?

  • Diagnosing Nipple Pain

    Learn the sources of nipple pain and effective treatments to help prevent and treat.
  • Making More Milk

    Learn who is at risk for a low milk supply, how to differentiate from a perceived low milk supply and a true low milk supply, and what remedies, treatments, and medications can help increase the milk supply.
