ZOOM Monday 20 May 2024 - Formula supplementation after CS birth

Event description

Presentation at 7:30pm (Be on Zoom 7.15pm)
Presenter: Lauren Papalia RN, RM, IBCLC, MMid
Caesarean section birth in Australia accounts for 38% of all births and is known to negatively impact breastfeeding exclusivity and duration. Our study compared breastfeeding outcomes between women who birthed by elective caesarean and non elective caesarean. 851 Australian women were surveyed and asked about their feeding methods following birth. The findings revealed a discrepancy in formula supplementation during the in patient hospital stay following birth between groups of women, and highlighted the need for further breastfeeding support and education.

Lauren Papalia is a midwife educator at Women and Newborn Health service, responsible for staff breastfeeding education. Lauren is and IBCLC, registered midwife and child health nurse, having worked clinically with infants and mothers over 15 years. Most recently Lauren completed her Masters degree examining breastfeeding outcomes between women who birth by elective and non elective caesarean section, with the hope to highlight the need for additional care and support for women who birth by caesarean section when establishing lactation.
