Inequities in lactation and perinatal health are at the root of existing racial and socioeconomic disparities

Inequities in lactation and perinatal health are at the root of existing racial and socioeconomic disparities

New research from Nurturely and collaborators sheds light on a simple and cost effective solution for increasing rates of human milk feeding and decreasing rates of postpartum depression.

Research

Learn the new and extant research on infant carriers as a tool for increased bodyfeeding and expressed milk feeding as well as decreased postpartum depression. Infant carriers are not only beneficial for key perinatal and pediatric health outcomes, but they are a cost-effective and culturally-relevant intervention in communities experiencing the worst health inequities.

Culture

Carrying is first and foremost a cultural practice! Gain an introduction to the deep significance of this practice for communities around the world and learn how carrying is central to human caregiving. $5 from every registration will be donated to birth equity and safety among the indigenous communities of Guatemala, where Nurturely's carrying journey began.

Practice

Participate in a hands-on demonstration to understand safe use of infant carriers as well as how to troubleshoot common mistakes that can impede successful carrier implementation as a daily practice. Leave equipped to assist patients with this tool that can change the trajectory of both the parent's and baby's health, with the potential to reduce the equity gap in lactation and mental health.
