The mastitis you’ve never heard of

Granulomatous mastitis is a rare, chronic, benign breast condition that primarily impacts women of childbearing age (usually 2-6 years after pregnancy). It is poorly understood, difficult to diagnose, and with no agreed-upon treatment protocols. It can cause repeated abscesses and pain in sufferers. I will explain what is known about the disease, diagnosis, and treatment options, and include reports from women in a GM support group who have struggled with the diagnosis and its symptoms through pregnancy or postpartum.

Karen Zamperini Doula, Lactation Counselor

Skin-to-Skin for the Win

Increasing milk volume through skin-to-skin, nervous system regulation and herbs instead of pumping in a 43.year old second time mother with a history of low supply and poor response to pumping.

Dana Leigh Ehman BA, IBCLC, RLC

Low supply to over supply with Reglan

We will discuss a client's recent experience with low supply at one month postpartum and how she was able to use Reglan and pumping to induce a full supply. We will also discuss the client's experience through the process and the importance of making care plans sustainable and manageable.

Louisa Brandenburger IBCLC

See what sticks!

I have worked with this family with 2 babies.  History of breast reduction, supply drop at 4 months of age, supplementing for the first baby.  Second baby - new infertility concerns - breastfeeding exclusively- mom began taking thyroid meds, metformin, is out of this world!  Exclusive breastfeeding with the second. It's just a great example of determination and "throwing everything at it," and it works!

Look for a Zoom link on our Facebook page and via email.
