Problems during lactation course

140h training course for midwives and nurses who after the course will be able to provide III level lactation counseling and get Certified Lactation Consultant (CDL – pl) or International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC).

It consists of interdisciplinary classes from various types of medicine. Lectures are held by experts from different fields, with complementary approach to the subject.

The course includes lectures and workshops (73h), practical classes (30h) and self-work (37h).

During the classes we teach about the physiology of lactation, the rules applied to the breastfeeding process and both mother and child’s nutrition, the breasts’ diseases and other conditions with an impact on the course of breastfeeding. We are also concerned with recognizing physical and psychological causes of lactation dysfunctions. We pay attention to detailed training for therapeutic proceedings in various critical situations. The other important subject is maintaining the lactation when taking medications or during temporary contraindications.

Those subjects exceed the usual undergraduate and post-graduate university studies on nursing, pediatrics, neonatology, gynecology, obstetrics, family medicine, public health, health promoting and health education.

Workshops with a psychologist: the participants learn the rules of proper communication, active listening techniques and above all acquire the skill of effective communication which is crucial for lactation consultation.

Workshop with a physical therapist: the participants learn the proper approach to the infants.

Workshop with a neurologopedist: the participants learn the physiology and pathologic condition of suction.

During the practical part in lactation clinics or maternity units the participants acquire the practical skill essential for work with a breastfeeding mother. They learn to counsel according to the operative standard, to keep records of their work and how to function in a team. Everyone with such high level of education will be prepared to work in lactation clinics, provide care during breastfeeding, develop procedures and educate the staff in their place of work (I, II, III referential level).

People who apply for our course should have a previous experience working with breastfeeding mothers.
