Marie's Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos Course

Marie's Biancuzzo's Guide to Decoding Lactation Photos Continuing Education Course

This course is unlike any course you have ever taken before.

Even if you’ve taken one of Marie’s courses in the past—highly acclaimed for Marie’s interactive teaching style—you’ll find even more active learning methods that help you to see clues in photos that typify common and not-so-common conditions in breastfeeding mothers and infants.

The course highlights relationships of photos within and between chapters. Marie will help you to see features that typify common—and not-so-common—clinical conditions.

Realizing that half or more of your IBLCE exam is dependent upon photo recognition, you’ll finish this course being able to:

  • distinguish among breast/nipple conditions resulting from lactation-related conditions, congenital or acquired conditions, or pathology (infectious disease, autoimmune disease, cancer) and how they affect breastfeeding management
  • identify feeding-related normal and commonly-encountered abnormal physical findings of the infant/child and how they affect breastfeeding management.
  • recognize indicators of optimal and suboptimal milk production, ejection, and transfer, and how that impacts clinical recommendations.
  • determine how to problem-solve issues related to technological devices associated with breastfeeding and human milk.
  • relate physical indicators of growth and development to feeding management strategies.

If you’ve been tripping over words like craniosynostosis, hypoplasia, nevus, hemangioma, induration or peau d’orange, you’ll be glad to find that these and other conditions are clearly illustrated in The Breastfeeding Atlas (6th edition), and by completing the paper-and-pencil learning exercises in the Workbook, you’ll strengthen your ability to recognize these conditions.
