What do you know about breastfeeding? Do you feel adequately equipped in your clinical practice to support women and/or children during breastfeeding?
In this webinar, 3 healthcare professionals* will discuss the integration of breastfeeding knowledge into musculoskeletal care for breastfeeding women and/or their children.
Among other topics, you’ll learn about early detection of torticollis and therapeutic management of newborns and very young babies, as well as interdisciplinary work and the reasons for referral if you work with babies, pregnant women or breastfeeding women. The possible management of breast pain (such as blocked milk ducts or functional pain), which goes far beyond the simplistic application of an ultrasound protocol, will also be covered.
*Collaborators: Marie-France Blais, IBCLC breastfeeding nurse consultant and Kary-An Fournier, pediatric physiotherapist.
