Abstract:

This presentation highlights how much of the vocabulary and terms used by professionals can be confusing and intimidating to lay people. The speaker will focus on ways of simplifying birth and breastfeeding through visual instruction and common language. Many teaching suggestions and strategies are given throughout the presentation. We as educators and advocates must learn to translate perinatal terms into words familiar to communities in order to be successful in reaching everyone with the vital message that human milk is important to human babies.
