Lactation Simulation Model Case 1. Breast Engorgement with Low Milk Production
LSM Case 1.1 | Necessary Equipment, Materials, and LSMs
Before starting LSM Case 1 “Breast engorgement and low milk production,” make sure you watch this video and prepare all of the necessary materials.
LSM Case 1.2 | Comprehensive Lactation Breast Exam in the First Few Days Postpartum
In this video, the clinician will demonstrate a comprehensive postpartum breast exam on a lactating woman in a hospital setting. It is so important for all health care providers to examine not just the breasts, but also underneath the breasts and the axillae (armpits). Make sure to observe both breasts simultaneously to identify any irregularities or abnormalities.
LSM Case 1.3 | Breast Massage Techniques for Postpartum Breast Engorgement
The goal of this video is to demonstrate three useful breast massage techniques for management of postpartum breast engorgement. The LiquidGoldConcept Lactation Simulation Model (LSM) is the ONLY breastfeeding simulator that can be engorged to mimic postpartum engorgement or oversupply.
LSM Case 1.4 | Deep and Shallow Latch Techniques
In this video the patient demonstrates an incorrect latch technique. The clinician shows the patient how to achieve an asymmetric deep latch in the cross-cradle breastfeeding position.
LSM Case 1.5 | Hand Expression of Colostrum
Throughout this video, we demonstrate how to use the LiquidGoldConcept Lactation Simulation Model (LSM) to teach patients and health providers hand expression of colostrum into a spoon. Note that various hand expression techniques are used, can you guess which one is the most efficient method?
LSM Case 1.6 | Breastfeeding Plan on Day 3 Postpartum
Now that you’ve watched Parts 1 through 5, you are an expert in postpartum breast exams, breast massage techniques for engorgement, latching a baby asymmetrically for a deeper latch, and hand expression of colostrum. Round out your training with introduction to hospital discharge counseling.
