About the event

Northwest Mothers Milk Bank and Providence Health & Services invite you to join us for Session One of the 2021 Donor Human Milk Symposium. Leslie Parker, PhD, APRN, NNP-BC, FAAN and Fiona Jardine, PhD will share relevant research and their expert opinion on milk expression following birth and supporting parents who may choose to exclusively pump their milk. Hosted by Jennifer Lincoln, MD, IBCLC.

Leslie has been involved in human milk research for nearly two decades and focuses on the nutrition of the preterm infant and timing of milk expression to decrease insufficient milk supply and delayed lactogenesis II in mothers of critically ill and premature infants. Fiona conducted her dissertation research on the experiences of those who exclusively pump, and their options around sharing, donating, and receiving milk.

Participants will receive 2.5 CME/CE/L-CERP credits. This virtual session will be recorded and sent to registrants for later viewing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the evidence behind the impact of early milk expression on milk production in mothers of critically ill infants, including barriers and facilitators to initiation.
  • Explore maternal and staff behaviors which may affect milk production.
  • Consider how health care providers can facilitate increased milk production in mothers and infants admitted to the NICU.
  • Describe the reasons that exclusive pumpers breastfeed without nursing and identify some challenges to both nursing at the breast/chest and to exclusive pumping.
  • Discuss reasons exclusive pumpers have for sharing, donating, and receiving human milk and the outcomes of this behavior.
  • Explain grief donation and support those considering or undertaking milk donation after perinatal loss.
