Breastfeeding After Cosmetic Breast Surgery CERP

A comprehensive discussion of breast augmentation and reduction surgeries and their impact upon lactation; discussion of incidence, motivations, surgical techniques, implications for lactation, psychological factors, breastfeeding management, and resources.

Note:This is Diana's hallmark presentation based on her seminal work in this field.

Knipple Knowledge CERP

This session explores normal and potentially problematic anatomical nipple variations, nipple surgeries, conditions, and their effects on milk production, milk removal, and direct breastfeeding. Positional modifications and tools to facilitate latch for mothers with nipple variations, conditions, or a history of nipple surgery are discussed.

Making More Milk CERP

With new research and innovations in the lactation field, there are now many more ways to increase milk production than in previous years. This talk presents the most promising of these new methods, with information about targeting the method to the underlying problem.

Overcoming Breastfeeding Ambivalence CERP

It can be difficult to know how to talk to mothers who are ambivalent about breastfeeding. This talk presents effective communication methods that help mothers explore their concerns and reach a more confident perspective about breastfeeding.
