BreastfeedLA is proud to present Dr. Thomas Hale, the nation’s leading researcher on medications and their effects on lactation, in the Antelope Valley for a full day of learning! Dr. Hale has spent years directing research that measures the precise volumes of individual medications entering milk and the amount available to infants upon ingestion of the milk of medicated mothers.
Dr. Hale will begin the day by discussing the use of medications in breastfeeding mothers and factors to consider to ensure optimal safety and effectiveness for both mother and child.
As it is now known that the duration of breastfeeding has a clear impact on the health of mother and child, and that families often discontinue breastfeeding if mothers become ill or require medications, Dr. Hale’s second session will offer an in-depth look at how medications can affect milk production, which can significantly impact the duration of breastfeeding.
After lunch, Dr. Hale will present the latest evidence on drugs of abuse, including marijuana, and breastfeeding, offering some insight into this complicated and controversial topic. Dr. Hale will take us inside the recommendations and guidelines, looking at the science of how and whether these drugs actually enter the milk and their potential effects on breastmilk-fed infants and toddlers.
Creating a care plan for a breastfeeding dyad when a mother is diagnosed with an infectious disease can be a daunting task. Dr. Hale outlines the process of how to consider the options and ensure that the protection of breastfeeding is held up as one of the critical factors.
Move beyond assumptions, away from broad recommendations to wean, and into a place of true understanding about how medications and breastfeeding interact. Get the facts with Dr. Hale and BreastfeedLA in the Antelope Valley!
