Evergreen Perinatal Education: Talking with Pregnant Women About Feeding Their Babies

Description: 

At one time all babies were breastfed. There were no options. The education about breastfeeding would have occurred as children observed their mothers, aunts, and neighbors feeding their babies. There would have been an assumption that this is how all babies are fed, and no question about that wisdom. But, in the last century, the greed of profit in the baby food industry, combined with wars taking women out of the home, and women, themselves, challenging their roles as stay at home mothers have changed the picture of parenting children. Now women see options, and these include choices about how babies are born, and how they are fed. Although most women develop strong feelings about breastfeeding before they are even pregnant, many will be strongly influenced by the information they receive from healthcare professionals. It is up to healthcare professionals to make sure women have the information they need to make the very best choices.

Evergreen Perinatal Education: Getting Breastfeeding Started with Evidence-Based Care: Mother-Friendly Birth Practices

Description: 

We cannot isolate early breastfeeding without identifying the events during the labor and delivery that may influence the mother’s ability to give, or the baby's ability to receive, mother’s milk. We cannot look at breastfeeding without looking at everything that precedes the birth of the baby. In this module we will look at the actual birth and early postpartum practices that can enhance or hinder the breastfeeding process. We need to ask ourselves if our care is evidenced-based, or just old habits, and do our practices meet the real needs of infants and mothers today?

Evergreen Perinatal Education: The Art of Helping Women with First Feedings

Description: 

Thousands of years ago, it would never have occurred to a woman that she had to be “taught” how to feed her baby. Even 150-200 years ago, there wasn’t much conscious thought about the “technique” of feeding. Women didn’t need to have any formal lessons about how to breastfeed their little ones because the lessons had been taught day to day - woman to woman, women to young children. Education happened by experience, observation, through cultures that were more synchronous with the biology of breastfeeding and lactation. In current times, most of us are breastfeeding or working with women who live in a time where the biology and infant feeding have grown distant, and breastfeeding, birth and parenting are highly influenced by the cultural beliefs of the time, rather than the instinctive biological norms of many years ago. Consequently, women and their families often need information and help to feel confident about breastfeeding

Evergreen Perinatal Education: Feeding the Very Preterm Infant: The Baby Born at 24 to 34 Weeks

Description: 

At the beginning of pregnancy, no family ever expects, or prepares for the birth of a very premature, critically ill infant. This is a crisis for every family that experiences it, and they need emotional support, educational information and complex technology to get through this difficult time. Numerous studies have shown with overwhelming evidence, how critical mother’s own milk is for her very fragile newborn and how mother’s milk can make a difference in neonatal outcomes both long term and short term. Mothers and families need to have this information so they can make informed decisions about their choices for feeding their premature infant. This module explores the very complicated process of caring for premature babies and the subsequent challenges of providing human milk for these little ones.

GOLD is growing again! We’re excited to introduce the newest addition to the GOLD family: The GOLD Learning Online Symposium Series. Starting this fall, GOLD Learning is introducing a new series of live, one day events. The GOLD Learning Online Symposiums will focus on a particular topic or area of practice within the field of maternal child health.

They provide the information that families need to make informed decisions about their choices during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. Join us on September 12, 2016 for the GOLD Learning Online Symposium: Childbirth Education. This one day, live event will highlight some of the latest research and trends in childbirth education. Penny Simkin will be kicking things off as our keynote speaker, and we look forward to a fascinating day of updating clinical knowledge and skills with a particular focus on how to present information to the families we work with.

Baby Friendly Hospital Education Initiative for Nurse, Physician and Staff Training by FirstLatch.net

| Location: , - USA []
Description: 

Our online training program will address three key issues:

Accessibility to all staff members at convenient times (24/7/365)
Behavior changing training
Cost effectiveness

Typical training programs where students attend on-site training classes require enormous amounts of staff time and can become costly. Programs need to be set up, classes need to be repeated so all staff members can attend and attendance needs to be monitored. This all adds to training costs. A webinar is a great solution allowing fixed costs so there are no surprises when all staff have not yet been completely trained and you have come to the end of your budget.

Our webinar format consists of 5 Chapters with multiple lessons per chapter personalized to your hospital. Each lesson is recorded in webcast format so the learner sees the power point slides and hears the speaker’s voice. Each lesson is 20-45 minutes in length so students can access the materials when they have a short window of time, or can do several lessons when they have a longer period of time to devote to it. Each webcast is sprinkled with realistic hospital scenarios, links out to relevant web pages and contains quick quizzes and 'fast facts'. Add new staff on your schedule as the webcasts can be started at any time and are available 24/7/365. Our students are involved and engaged in their learning.
