This study presents a novel clinical model used to demonstrate the use of lanolin before and during repeated skin insult to protect the skin.
This survey-based study investigaes how actual experiences of birth and breastfeeding differed from the birthing parent's pre-birth intentions and any subsequent perceived experience of breastfeeding mothers in the USA.

Breastmilk composition aids in the defense against infection due to the presence of IgAs, hormones and enzymes, micro RNA and exomes, human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), oxysterols, and stem cells in breastmilk.
Oxysterols are antiviral components found in human milk to help protect against infection. New research indicates there are three oxysterols present in breast milk throughout lactation.
Prolactin is a hormone secreted from the pituitary gland that enables lactating parents to produce milk. As estrogen and progesterone levels decrease after birth, prolactin levels rise beginning the productiong of human milk.
Human milk oligosaccharides are complex sugars found exclusively in human milk that help build a healthy gut microbiome in infants, providing a lasting impact on the body's digestive and immune systems.
Approximately 1 in 5 women suffer from perinatal mental health problems during pregnancy and in the first year after birth. The potential effects of poor maternal mental health include birth trauma, lactation issues, and cognitive delays with the baby.
Breast milk's composition enables it to play a key role in the defence against infection.
Healthcare professionals can support perinatal mental health by creating a safe space to talk, asking questions to gather information on symptoms, and by istening to patients to increase maternal confidence.
Breastfeeding improves babies' chances of remaining infection-free, protecting against a wide range of illnesses, including respiratory infections.
Developed in partnership with Lansinohs' Clinical Advisory Netowrk, this is a guide to practical breast massage techniques for lactating parents and mothers.
Stanford researchers found combining breast massage with hands-on pumping led to higher yield of milk output per session. Breast massage helps empty the milk ducks and improve the flow of breastmilk.
The more often a lactating parent hand expresses milk during the first three days, the better their milk supply. Use this patient resource to teach how to express colostrum by hand.
Hands-on pumping can be used by any lactating parent to boost breastmilk yield or production. According to research, when mothers of neonates used their hands alongside their pump to express milk, breastmilk had a higher fat and caloric content.

Perineal massage promotes the skin around the perineum to stretch more easily during childbirth and has been shown to help reduce the risk of a perineal tear or episiotomy.
A step-by-step guide to educate and help patients become more comfortable with anenatal perineal massage.
This survey aims to investigate how actual experiences of birth and breastfeeding differed from mothers' pre-birth intentions and any subsequent perceived impact on the breastfeeding experience.
This multi-country study examines how pain related to birth may be an under-considered factor in the early cessation of breastfeeding.
This user guide for managing breastfeeding conditions supports healthcare professionals as they care for lactating patients.
Contact Nipple Shields are effective tools for addressing short term latch-on issues related to premature, small or ill infants, flat or inverted nipples, tongue tie, lip tie, or overactive let-down.
Colostrum, also known as liquid gold, is the first milk produced by a lactating parent. Although the volume produced may be tiny, colostrum has significant health benefits.
Breastmilk is producted by lactating parents and naturally controlled by a baby's needs and not breast size.
Cluster feeding is a time at which an infant feeds several times within a few hours. This is most often due to a growth spurt.
The immediate time post-birth is known as the golden hour. During this time, babies display instictive behavior when held skin-to-skin.
Oxytocin is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. This hormone is responsible for helping the uterus contract to pre-pregnancy size, the let-down reflex during breastfeeding, and a feeling of relaxation or well-being.
