||Ethical Aspects of Contemporary Lactation Practice: Reflecting on Real Life Practice
What’s the first step in ethical decision-making? It’s stop and think. But of course, many of us find ourselves hurried and harried in our everyday practice, and it’s hard to take the time to stop and think—even though it’s critical.
Today, you can stop and think about issues such as a client who asks you to do something that doesn’t fit with your own ethical framework; how to deal with clients and colleagues when the mother wants to breastfeed before giving the baby up for adoption; the ethics of induced lactation; and questions that surround off-label drugs.
These thorny issues may be worse than you might have realized. But, with the help of a panel of experienced IBCLCs, a few articles, and several worksheets, you’ll soon be able to take the next steps towards solving ethical problems that that occur in your practice setting.
