October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Happy Mama Expo, founded by Reach Healthcare, will feature a discussion on the role of breastfeeding in breast cancer prevention. Guest speaker Theresa Moutafis, MA, RDN, CDCES, IBCLC, is an instructor, coach, and consultant with Baby Sparks, FoodSmart, Pacify, and Sonder Health. At the expo, she will share the benefits of breastfeeding, what to expect after the first couple of months, managing the transition back to work, the role of tele-lactation, and alternative feeding support.
The feeding journey is unique and varies across different parents and families. Moutafis will provide expert advice on a variety of scenarios.
"Having forums such as the Happy Mama Expo are so important. Families need tailored information that matches their family's lifestyle, and reinforming support for positive lactation experiences, especially if their first time was not positive. Considering specific employment scenarios and thinking through what will work best, addressing the lack of lactation support, and approaches to managing complications that sometimes unexpectedly arise are critical to parents and babies having good feeding experiences," describes Lauren Majors, IBCLC, RLC, co-founder of Sonder Health (https://www.sonderhealth.com/happymama).
