Caroline’s experience creating protocols in the hospital and her comprehensive knowledge of the guidelines of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) will help attendees put all of the most commonly asked questions to rest.
To conclude the day, Pauline Sakamoto will discuss the concepts of formal and informal milk sharing and offer healthcare providers and the community optimal ways of communicating the importance of valuing human milk and its impact.

Childbirth Educators can be found working in a variety of settings to offer their services to families. Families can find them working as public health educators, hospital/community educators, in care providers’ offices and in private practice as educators.

CAPPA Childbirth Educators are non-clinical professionals. CAPPA Childbirth Educators do not dispense medical advice, diagnose medical conditions, or prescribe/administer medications or treatments of any kind. Educators do not offer information that directs families to act against medical advice.
