Monday 27 May 2024 - Breastfeeding risk assessment tool in pregnancy

Event description

Marketing of infant formula and the role of the Health Care Worker

Presenter: Stephanie Emmons RM, IBCLC

The use of a breastfeeding risk assessment tool has been implemented in a maternity service providing antenatal and postnatal care. The screening assessment tool is used at 28 weeks, with a secondary screening tool at 36 weeks. It helps identify possible risk factors for low supply, allowing those women a chance to have an appointment with a Lactation Consultant antenatally to develop a BF plan. I will be discussing some of the experiences of the assessment tool by the midwives and a few outcomes of our patients.

Stephanie Emmons is Endorsed Midwife and IBCLC currently working as lead midwife at Western Obstetrics. She started her nursing career at Royal Perth, before undertaking her midwifery studies, and have been working as a midwife for the last 7 years. She is mum of two beautiful boys, 1 is nearly 4 years and the other has just turned 1.
