Maternal Factor:

No previous experience in breast health is required. Labs include breast palpation and manual techniques.

The 2 day infant portion of the course will teach participants to assess and manage lactation related conditions in the infant. It will combine principles of musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapy such as neonatal reflexes.  Participants will learn about normal positioning and latch, infant suck mechanics, musculoskeletal conditions of the neck and jaw, handling techniques, clinical problem solving, and intervention options.
