Lactation Simulation Model Case 1.2


This is Part 2 of the LSM Case 1 “Breast Engorgement and Low Milk Production.” 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.
