SPEAKING - PEDIATRIC TONGUE- AND LIP-TIES: DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT WITH SOFT-TISSUE LASERS - Boston, MA

Alison Hazelbaker PhD, IBCLC, CST, Robert Convissar DDS, and Martin Kaplan DMD, Paul O'Brien JR DC and Lorraine Aubuchon are teaching a class at Tufts University in Boston, MA. In this combination lecture and hands-on course, attendees will be introduced to the concept of laser frenectomies, an increasingly popular method by which dentists and physicians can treat tongue- and lip-ties in their patients.

As many as 5% of all babies born in the United States have tongue-ties significant enough to cause breastfeeding difficulties. This condition can cause a plethora of problems for both babies (difficulty transferring milk, lack of growth) and their mothers (sore or cracked nipples, mastitis and low milk supply). Babies with tongue-ties can be erroneously labeled as “lazy nursers,” “stubborn feeders" or as “failures to thrive.” They may also be erroneously diagnosed with GI problems, when all that is needed is a simple 30-second frenectomy to release the tongue-tie, the result of which is to restore the baby’s ability to efficiently feed.

In this course, attendees will receive an overview of best practices regarding tongue- tie assessment and treatment, and will participate in a hands-on workshop on how to remove tongue-ties through the use of soft-tissue lasers. They will also receive an update from a licensed chiropractor about how chiropractic issues can affect frenectomy diagnosis, as well as hearing from an office administrator about billing and reimbursement issues.

Day 1 of the course will consist of: lactation background, relevant chiropractic information and a detailed discussion of the science behind pediatric frenectomies.

Day 2 of the course will consist of: a detailed discussion of laser tissue interaction, a hands-on workshop on pig jaws, and a presentation on procedure billing and reimbursement.

Learning Objectives:

•Understand infant sucking physiology and how tongue-ties impair infant suck

•Use evidence-based diagnostic criteria to screen babies for this condition

•Understand all of the consequences and benefits of using lasers to remove tongue-ties

•Be able to perform tongue-tie releases on infants

•Understand how structural issues that interfere with breastfeeding can be relieved through chiropractic cranial work and manual therapies

SPEAKING - FIRST INTERNATIONAL BREASTFEEDING AND CHILD HEALTH CONGRESS - LIMA, PERU

Dr. Alison Hazelbaker has been invited by the Sociedad Peruana de Pediatria to speak at their First International Breastfeeding and Child Health Congress taking place from August 18-20, 2016.

Dr. Hazelbaker's speaking topics include:

Why Johnny Can't Suck: Perinatal Influences on Normal Term Infants' Ability to Suck and Strategies to Prevent and Correct Sucking Problems:

This presentation focuses on the most dramatic presentation of breastfeeding problems: the baby who has significant sucking problems associated with interventionist birth management. Dr. Hazelbaker covers all the potential pitfalls of childbirth as business and the possible negative impact this approach has on sucking. She covers the differential lactation diagnosis process, the decision tree for choosing level and type of intervention, and the various treatment modalities used to correct sucking problems both in and out of the hospital. Dr. Hazelbaker takes the participants on a journey through the normal physiological sucking process to aid participants in their understanding of normal vs. abnormal thereby enhancing the assessment skills of the audience. She also suggests ways to "stack the deck in the baby's favor" to prevent sucking problems from developing. This workshop touches on but does not cover assessing and treating sucking problems that are associated with structural abnormalities or neurological causes. 

Treating Infant Sucking Problems with Craniosacral Therapy:

Unfortunately it has become commonplace for newborns to refuse to latch or have tremendous difficulty latching to the breast. A non-latching baby or a baby with significant sucking issues presents a unique and frustrating challenge to the lactation consultant. Several studies have shown the benefit of craniosacral therapy as a treatment approach to correct disorganized and dysfunctional sucking. In this exciting presentation, Dr. Hazelbaker details the anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral system, linking it to the anatomy and physiology of infant suck. She describes the multiple structural and physiological deficits of newborn sucking caused by intrauterine and intrapartum influences. She explains craniosacral therapy, and presents case histories of actual clients whose situations responded well to this form of therapy. Along with the benefits, Dr. Hazelbaker suggests a clinical decision-making algorithm that aids the clinician to determine if a particular infant could be helped by craniosacral therapy. 

Tongue-Tie or No Tongue-Tie:

For decades, assessing tongue-tie has been a controversial subject. Although lactation consultants have a keen appreciation for the need to treat this relatively uncommon structural abnormality, other health care providers do not share their level of concern. Parents often get caught or trapped between the recommendations of their LC and their primary health care provider. In this presentation, Dr. Hazelbaker presents the most up-to-date research on definition, assessment, treatment and treatment outcome. She examines the on-going controversy and provides research based guidelines for the clinical decision-making process.

Course - Breastfeeding Management - Columbus, OH

Over the years, many doulas and midwives have requested a class tailored to their need to provide basic and effective breastfeeding support and management.  This class addresses the new breast anatomy and physiology research that guides management practice; covers suck anatomy and physiology; and presents multiple management strategies for common but troubling breastfeeding problems, like engorgement and sore nipples (neither of which is normal).  

By the end of the class, participants will be able to properly position an infant at breast, identify a sucking problem, properly manage engorgement, sore nipples, and mastitis, and identify when a client needs to see an IBCLC or other therapist.

Other lactation courses cover a broader variety of topics in less depth.  Because the majority of people taking this class are already trained support people, this class is focusing on the technical aspects of breastfeeding support.  The goal is to teach solid, ground level clinical skills. 

There are no prerequisites or required training or credentials.  It is open to anyone working with breastfeeding mothers. 

This class is Saturday, January 23, 2016.

Class fee - $150. Payment is due in full upon registration.
