Upcoming Workshops

December 1, 2021

This 3-hour virtual workshop is provided through North Carolina State University. Register HERE.

Workshop objectives:

  1. Describe how our intuition and experience can be used to provide support to nursing couplets. 

  2. Describe how the underlying musculature and bony structures of the face, head, and body can affect the way a baby approaches nursing. 

  3. Demonstrate how infants recruit muscles from all over their bodies to manage their breastfeeding environment, and how to read infant faces to understand what mechanisms they are using both on the breast and off, and to read a body at rest and in action for areas of tension and muscle overuse.

  4. Explain how to address our findings through a unique set of clinical techniques specific to addressing compensatory muscle use  to move babies from dysfunction to function.
