Hypoplastic Breast Syndrome: The hot new diagnosis?

Time-frame: 70-120
CERP: yes

Baby is here, but where’s the milk? One of the hottest breastfeeding problem topics among mothers on the internet is insufficient glandular tissue, and many are making this self-diagnosis in the absence of other explanations. LCs want to assure mothers that this is a rare phenomenon, but wonder what is going on when women have “questionable” breasts and poor milk output. This session takes a closer look at normal and abnormal breast development in the context of fetal, pubertal and pregnancy stages of development to better understand what may be going on. Discussion includes the relative merits and drawbacks of popular treatment approaches.
