WEBINAR SERIES – Treating Suck/Swallow/Breathe Disorders in Infants

WEBINAR SERIES 1-6    A Manual Approach to Breastfeeding Disorders in Infants

Over the past 20 years there has been a huge increase in the number of women wanting to breastfeed their babies.
Much of this is due to the overwhelming emerging evidence base, which indicates a wealth of health benefits, to the baby, from this mode of feeding.

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

Key to recognising and treating an infant struggling with breast or bottle feeding, is an understanding of the suck/swallow/breathe mechanism, related anatomy and a range of direct and indirect techniques to normalise any structural dysfunctions.

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 applied anatomy, all our techniques are filmed on real babies or dolls, and we provide an interactive questions and answer session following every webinar.
