The Importance of Collaboration: Working Together to Achieve Effective Infant Feeding
This will be a hands-on workshop where you can expect to learn about the impact ineffective tongue function can have on infant feeding and how collaboration between health professionals can maximize outcomes. The effects of birth trauma, tethered oral tissues, head/neck/jaw tension, and much more will be discussed in detail. We are seeing more and more dyads struggling with feeding in some shape or form and unfortunately there seems to be a gap in the support they receive. We strongly believe if there was more accurate information, education and collaboration amongst the frontline health care providers and support professionals, we would see less moms struggling through feeding their newborn(s).
Presented by Jennifer Welch from Montreal (IBCLC, RLC & LLLL) & Melita Hatton from North Vancouver (BASc, Osteopathic Practitioner) with Dr. Jimmy Chan from North Vancouver (DMD) & Jodi Mosogau from Abbotsford (BSN, RN, IBCLC) there as co-presenters and Q&A panelists.
