“Helping Parent Navigate the Emotional Roller Coaster of Tongue Tie” First offered at the GOLD lactation conference in April, 2014, this presentation is all about helping parents cope with the ups and downs of tethered oral tissue. From evaluation, to diagnosis to release and and the sometimes difficult path to breastfeeding. This presentation is suitable for anyone who supports parents with babies who have a tongue or lip tie. 60-90 minutes
“Breastfeeding Challenges: What’s a Doula to Do?” Doulas are the first line of defense for breastfeeding problems. Sometimes it’s hard to know, when to refer to an IBCLC or other health care provider vs trying to solve the situation herself.
