World Peace Begins At Home: Domestic Violence and the Breastfeeding Mother

Time-frame: 60-120
CERP: yes

The first incident of violence in a relationship often occurs during pregnancy or shortly after the birth of a child. Volunteers and health care providers often feel helpless when faced with mothers in violent relationships. In this session, participants will learn to recognize the signs of domestic violence, how to locate resources for mothers and how to assist in maintaining the breastfeeding dyad without endangering mother or child. Participants will also learn to identify their legal and ethical obligations under their respective professional scopes of practice.
