Hormone Testing When Nothing Else Makes Sense

Time-frame: 90-120
CERP: yes

What do you do when you’ve explored the possibilities for a mother’s low milk supply and yet cannot give her an answer? Some problems are hormonal in nature and defy traditional management solutions. There are many conditions that can impact lactation. This talk is divided into three parts: how hormones work, hormonal conditions that can affect lactation, and how to go about assessment, testing and dealing with the results. The goal is to coach serious lactation professionals in how to take problem-solving to the next level. By the end of the sessions, participants should have a broader awareness of various problems that can affect lactation and what types of clues to look for, as well as their advocacy role for the mother. Note: this is a variation of “Is it her Hormones?”
