Over the past 30 years there has been a huge increase in the number of women wanting to breastfeed their babies.

Much of this increase is underpinned by an influential emerging evidence base, which indicates a wealth of health benefits to the baby from this mode of feeding.

However, breastfeeding itself can be problematic for a variety of reasons, and failure to breastfeed successfully, has become one of the more common presentations to Osteopaths, and other manual practitioners, who treat early life disorders.

One of the keys to recognising and treating an infant struggling with breast or bottle feeding, is an understanding of the Suck/Swallow/Breathe mechanism, the related anatomy, and a range of techniques, both direct and indirect, to optimise any physiological deficiencies.

So we have designed a really practical 6 part Webinar Series, to provide an in-depth guide to this subject.

As with all our other ‘hands-on’ courses and videos, we include lots of unique graphics to explain the applied anatomy. All our techniques are filmed on real babies or dolls, and we provide a supporting interactive question and answer session after every webinar.

Each Webinar covers a different aspect of the topics involved, and is delivered as a one hour presentation followed by a 30 minute live discussion and question & answer session with Miranda Clayton.

Following the Webinar you will be able to view both the presentation & the Q&A session on our video platform for a limited time period of six weeks.
We will also supply you with full notes on the presentation – you can use Google Translate to change the notes into your own language if this is easier. Throughout the series we will also send articles and evidence base of interest.

We will be broadcasting one Webinar a week, for 6 weeks.

We understand that the world is a big place with different time zones. You do not have to watch these webinars live, as you will have 6 weeks to review the videos and subsequent discussion following the webinar.

Total Cost of Webinar Series is £200.00 GBP
