Seeing Birth From Baby's Perspective - Online Course - presented by Kate White of APPPAH

Seeing Birth From Baby's Perspective

Attuning to their stories from conception onward

Save $100 until September 1, 2019!

Click HERE to register - 20% off original price!

Babies are always telling us their stories

The question is….

How well are we listening?

We now know that the baby's experience of conception, pregnancy, birth, and attachment can provide a lifelong template for health and a foundation of resiliency to life’s challenges. Yet, the baby's experience often remains unconscious but profoundly alive in the body. Healing and integrating these early overwhelming events is possible.

In this course you will learn:

  • The importance of understanding the baby from the inside out. In our modern world, we come at babies from the outside in.

  • How to get the baby's story and hear from their perspective

  • To understand the neurophysiology of trauma in infants

  • That prevention begins with working on our own early experiences

Who is the course for:

  • Therapists, educators, and medical professionals who are interested in better understanding the baby's experience and preventing early trauma. All practitioners who work with moms and babies and want to be able to serve them in the best way possible.

Benefits of taking this course:

  • A new look at the baby's experience, and ways to introduce this paradigm to your audiences

  • Leading edge information from prenatal and perinatal pioneers and practitioners

  • Valuable Tools for practitioners to improve your skills in working with moms and babies

  • You will learn the in depth implications of birth trauma and healing

  • Learn more about your own relationship to your birth experience

Course Introduction: Conscious Baby Principles

  • Kate White: 10 Principles of The Conscious Baby (Free View Available)

The course below is divided into three parts:

  • 1) Understanding the Baby's Experience: 3 presentations to help us understand how babies are conscious in the womb, how they can remember prenatal experience and birth, and ways we can help babies heal if they have overwhelming experiences. Each presentation has additional article, tools, and scripts for you!

  • 2) Bonding, Attachment, and the Trauma Imprint: Obstetrical interventions, parents' experiences and more can have an impact on the developing baby. These lectures talk about the theme of betrayal for babies and how these early experiences can create a patterns in our autonomic nervous system. They also follow the story of babies and how we can heal them through relationships. There are many experiences that start even preconception, especially stress. Enjoy these experts as they talk about the baby's experience.

  • 3) Healing Early, Developmental Trauma and the Impact of Trauma on Babies: Our pioneers in prenatal and perinatal psychology created healing modalities to be with babies that recognize their consciousness. Trends in healing talk about developmental trauma, or overwhelming events that occur early and can be chronic in our families. APPPAH has developed an approach that supports the healing of babies and positive change in our medical systems.

Bonus Material

  • Babies Are Not What We Thought by David Chamberlain. Pioneer and APPPAH co-founder talks about consciousness and the sensitivity of babies.

by Alison K. Hazelbaker. PhD, IBCLC, FILCA, CST-T, RCST, PPNE

 In this groundbreaking presentation, Dr. Hazelbaker presents seven very effective strategies for resolving infant sucking issues easily learned and implemented by the lactation consultant without violating scope of practice. Many sucking problems respond very well to bodywork. There is significant anecdotal and research evidence to prove this case. But bodywork is not always readily available or financially accessible. In the absence of readily available bodywork, the lactation consult can effectively address sucking issues using one, some or all of the seven (plus one bonus) strategies presented.

 Objectives:

The participant will be able to:

1. Discuss the important role of bodywork in addressing infant sucking issues.

2. Discuss seven strategies for resolving infant sucking issues.

3. Describe the proper use of the breast crawl as a therapeutic strategy.

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

Class fee: Doctor - $795; Staff/IBCLC - $295

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.
