In the first half of the program we will review the pathophysiology of lactation, appropriate breastfeeding management and common pitfalls, and routine and lactation specific care of breastfeeding patients. We’ll also take a look at how osteopathic manipulation can influence lactation and discuss relevant research. In the second half of the program we’ll shift the focus to the infant side of the equation. Topics will include mechanics of latch, osteopathic evaluation and treatment of the newborn, and how to address common issues that arise on the pediatric side of this dyad.Measurable goals and objectives for the program.
