Roadmap to Direct Breastfeeding for a Preterm Mother Baby Dyad

April 24, 2024, 9:00am CDT
In this Grand Rounds webinar, Shruti Gupta, MD MBBS, will discuss how to support a family's breastfeeding journey from the time the baby is born to when the infant is ready for discharge, and then how to transition the infant to direct breastfeeding after discharge. This session will help medical and nursing providers understand the unique requirements of a preterm mother-baby dyad in the NICU and after discharge. Infants admitted to the newborn ICU are usually separated from their mothers soon after birth, disrupting the cycle of breastfeeding. In addition, most of these infants are extremely sick, immature, and far from ready to breastfeed. Parents' lives have been disrupted in so many ways, all of which can have a direct effect on the breastfeeding journey.
