Dr. Kendall-Tackett’s Presentations
• Explore the role of depression in breastfeeding cessation and whether a mother’s prenatal intention to breastfeed makes a difference. This presentation summarizes and synthesizes recent studies and present new findings from the Survey of Mothers’ Sleep and Fatigue that address the link between birth interventions and depression in mothers.
• When it comes to overcoming adversity and stopping the intergenerational cycle of violence, breastfeeding makes all the
difference. This presentation will discuss breastfeeding’s role in protecting infants from the harmful effects of maternal depression, explain the importance of maternal responsivity to long-term health for the baby, and describe the role of breastfeeding in lessening the impact of a mother’s previous adverse experiences.
AM and PM Breakout Sessions:
Breakouts will discuss how ALL community health workers and child care providers can be attuned to the signs of postpartum mood disorders in new parents and provide a supportive environment for breastfeeding parents, as well as how new parents can benefit from participation in peer support activities both in person and online.
Engage with a moderated panel of mothers and support persons who will share their stories of living with postpartum mood disorders. They will share what they found to be helpful resources and strategies, and discuss what supportive measures are still needed.
