Following discussions with several IBCLC networking groups about placenta encapsulation and what they see in their practice, I was hoping to gather a bit more 'data' than I could in my day-to-day practice, where this still isn't very common. If you have a few minutes, it would be much appreciated.   http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/H53FD7W   Thanks!   (Mods, please move or remove if this is in the wrong place).
This is an old thread, but I would be interested in hearing about other's experiences with this or other "brain plasticity" therapies for kids with auditory/visual intergration difficulties. Anyone?
There's also something called a milk cyst (GALACTOCELE) - which isn't infected or related in any way to masititis. It's just a cyst that's filled with milk - if they don't go away on their own, they can be aspirated and that usually ends them.
You may want to try grapefuit seed extract instead of GV - the Newman protocol for this is one way to do it (http://www.drjacknewman.com/help/Candida-Protocol.asp) but I also like Jay Gordon's topical approach (http://drjaygordon.com/breastfeeding/thrush.html). One big thing for us was really getting serious about the probiotics for both if us.
Sometimes this is caused by a prolactinoma - a benign tumour that usually doesn't matter much, except that the high levels of prolactin may make it hard to get pregnant.   http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/galactorrhea.html
You know what's undignified? A grown woman wearing a bib (aka nursing cover). That's undignified :)   Now, if it helps a mama nurse her baby when s/he needs it, then I'm willing to overlook it, but no one should ever think that it's their right to impose it on her.
It definitely changed things while I was nursing - so for about 5.5 years! But now that I've weaned, it's a whole new phase and they are more important than ever - so take heart.
I'm sorry that the road has been such a difficult one for you - I hope find healing and brighter days ahead.
Honestly, the burn-out rate is one of the big reasons we haven't pursued it. Seeing how much training and scrutiny families go through to get approved - only to abandon it so quickly and regularly tells me that there's something deeply wrong. It doesn't seem to me like anyone is thinking this is rainbows and unicorns - even the initial discussions I had were pretty somberly realistic. So to go through all that and then STILL have the reality of doing it be worse than you...
Hmmm... that doesn't sound quite right. I know that in Ontario (Toronto area), there's a homestudy as well as PRIDE training and then possibly specialized training. It can take some time to find the staff to do the homestudy and then also the training usually only happens at set times per year, but 1-2 years sounds like a lot. For infants and teens in our area, there's quite a need - I got the impression that once we had the paperwork ready it would be a matter of being...
