New BAPM Framework published today on Lactation and Loss

26 May 2022 (Last updated: 26 May 2022 10:12)

BAPM has today published the Framework for Practice ‘Lactation and Loss: Management of lactation following the death of a baby’.

This framework is written for professionals working with parents and families to provide information and guidance in supporting mothers around lactation and loss, where a baby or child is not expected to survive, or has died.

The aim of this framework is to review lactation and loss and to utilise this knowledge to guide support for mothers and parents to make the choices which best suit their individual circumstances. This includes options around both cessation and continuation of lactation following the death of a baby.

You can view the Framework here: https://www.bapm.org/resources/lactation-and-loss-management-of-lactation-following-the-death-of-a-baby

 

To support the publication of this Framework, BAPM is holding a Webinar at 2pm today​. The webinar will cover the physiology of lactation as well as recommendations for supporting the emotional and physical wellbeing of mothers, partners and families.
