breastfeeding.jpgFeeding difficulties are a common presenting complaint in babies, the understanding of the role that osteopathy can have in supporting these cases is a dynamic, growing area in which osteopaths can often provide the missing link in working alongside lactation professionals to support breastfeeding mothers and babies experiencing feeding difficulties.

This 16-hour course will be lead by Felicity Bertin and Peter Cockhill. Felicity is an osteopath, trainee lactation consultant trained in tongue-tie division, an NCT breastfeeding peer supporter, and has spent the last few years working almost exclusively with infants with feeding difficulties. Peter is a long-standing member of the SCCO Faculty and is currently doing a research project on the potential benefits of osteopathy on tongue-tie and infant feeding.

In this course we will explore the mechanics of both breastfeeding and bottle feeding, common feeding difficulties including the effects of birth trauma, tongue tie and the role of osteopathy in treating and supporting these cases.
