Why take BabyFriendly Lactation?

AHA/AAP NRP

Neonatal Resuscitation Program
Changing the way we feed and nurture out newborn infants will impact their lives. Yet, changes are difficult to accept and implement. Understanding the positive impact for change is vital to the success of our goal. It is far easier to influence others on a value if you are vested in that value.

After completing this course you will be in awe of how natural motherhood is so well designed to keep baby as well as mother healthy and happy and how we, overtime, veered so far away from our natural behaviors and perpetuated illness, expense, and abusive behaviors.

Our duty as healthcare providers is to promote healthy habits to minimize illness and indorse practices to reduce violence in our society and promote emotional health.

You will find it amazing to understand how breastfeeding can do all that. I did. I am a convert! My biggest concern in our community and nation is the overwhelming escalation of violence with our children. It “boggles my mind” to understand how far from the normal we have become. School-yard bulling is an everyday occurrence which causes many children to take their own lives. Children with weapons has become a threat to all schools. “Why,” we ask, “does a child want to kill?” The answer may be attachment at birth with inability to bond with mother along with the socioeconomics of parenting without healthy role models within the family structure.

Basic Fetal Heart Monitoring begins with understanding intrauterine concepts of antepartum care with antenatal testing. Learn to prepare the mother for a successful outcome by determining the risk factors that contribute to poor outcomes.

This course includes a didactic presentation, video of instrumentation of fetal heart monitoring, and practice strips. Students and new grads are encouraged to enroll. To learn more about Basic Fetal Monitoring, click here.
