At least 25% of all recognized pregnancies result in a loss, whether miscarriage or still birth. This presentation will address the various choices available to mothers who have experienced perinatal or neonatal loss of the infant. Breast binding is no longer recommended, and bromocriptine was removed for use as an anti-galactogogue, so what does that leave for these mothers to safely and comfortably suppress their milk supply? This session will give you options to discuss with your clients.
