17 November 2021 World Prematurity Day. Sharing the chapter on premature birth and breastfeeding from Breastfeeding and Chronic Medical Conditions. I know there is so much more to add still and I will be writing more over the next few months
Following on from the data on the menopause and breastfeeding, I know many women are advised to limit the duration of breastfeeding in order to protect their own bone density. This sadly often shows a mis understanding of breastfeeding and its importance to the ongoing health of mother and child.
I hope this information taken from Breastfeeding and Chronic Medical Conditions helps
please email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information
I was only involved in preparing one table of this article but it deserves to be widely shared as an excellent model of support for breastfeeding by all in primary care – doctors, nurses and pharmacists
I am all too aware of the gaps which many professionals find in their knowledge after training. That is why we all need to undertake CPD. I have written this brief introduction for midwives who see mothers during their pregnancy and after delivery. Midwives are often more accessible than medics, they may be seen as more approachable, they care about as well as for, women throughtout their career, they help to train junior doctors. So I hope this will help them to understand more about how drugs pass into breastmilk and where to seek more information if needed. Happy to provide training via Microsoft Teams if you wish and to answer any emails. Wendy@breastfeeding-and-medication.co.uk.
Hope this is useful but please feedback if you need more, less, more details, any changes. And dont for get the books!
