Moms, Babies, Milk and the Law: Legal and Ethical Issues When Teaching Breastfeeding
Date: Wednesday, August 15, 2012
Time:1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

Presented by Elizabeth C. Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA

Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA, is a lawyer (since 1983), private practice lactation consultant (since 1997), and leader in her professional association (since 2005).  She brings to life the connection between lactation consultation and the law.  IBCLCs face a maze of ethical, moral and legal requirements in their day-to-day practice, no matter what the work setting. With plain language and humor, Liz explains how lactation helpers can work ethically and legally. She offers pragmatic tips that can immediately be used in daily practice — to successfully navigate that maze!  To read more about Liz, please check out her website.

This presentation will describe the difference between a legal and an ethical responsibility as a health care provider as well as common ethical considerations when teaching breastfeeding in prenatal and postpartum settings.

This activity has been planned for 1 Lamaze Contact Hour, and one Nursing Contact Hour. Attendees may earn contact hours upon purchase and completion of a quiz.

    Jaynie, to the best of my knowledge, after checking with Lamaze, it will be available after the event for viewing, but that will incur a charge. The original webinar at the time of presentation is free. Contact hours, during or after the event incur the charge as well. Please contact education@lamaze.org for more information, fees or further questions.
