Stand By Me: Informed Consent and Collaborative Lactation Care Plans

2 CERPs + 2 CEUs

Client-based care throughout the lactation journey


Informed consent is a common refrain in birth work, but it is often poorly taught, and poorly understood. This talk delves into the intricacies of autonomy, informed consent, collaboration, and multi-vocality in the goal-setting and plan creation processes. Together, we will explore the impacts of the concepts of “compliance” and move together through the ideas of “concordance” as a progressive and effective alternative approach to care.

“I have spent my life engaging in various facets of equity work, which have all emphasized the critical importance of autonomy in care settings, as well as the power imbalance of giving care vs. receiving care. It’s important to me to share these messages with those who are engaged in lactation care, so that we may all work together to advance our profession in these ways.”
