Supporting the Employed Breastfeeding Parent for Physicians


Help parents combine work and lactation.

Price: $17.00 USD
Working and breastfeeding/chestfeeding is one of the earliest and biggest challenges many new parents face. Are you completely prepared to provide the information and support your clients need? In this course, instructor Tamika Harris, IBCLC, RLC, covers all aspects of lactation for employed parents, so you can help them meet their goals. You’ll learn:
  • How employment can impact lactating parents
  • How employment can challenge milk supply and how to support abundant supply
  • The laws around lactation and employment, so you can inform parents of their rights
  • The essentials of expressing milk: choosing a pump, flange fitting, setting up a pumping schedule, and what to do if work gets in the way of a pumping session
  • How to handle, store, and use pumped milk and clean pump parts
  • How to help parents educate their caregivers about breastfeeding/chestfeeding, paced bottle feeding, and using human milk

Harris draws on her deep experience helping employed, lactating parents in hospital, clinic, and WIC settings to provide evidence- and experience-based advice. Going back to work can be challenging; as a compassionate, informed lactation support provider, you can make all the difference!
