Prenatally Diagnosed Congenital Heart Disease Lactation Program
This class was designed because there is an increased volume of new nurses with limited cardiac lactation experience who have a need for education and understanding of the feeding and growing of cardiac neonates.
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Identify regulations for using oral care with maternal breast milk in the neonatal/pediatric cardiac population
- Assemble and understand the use of the breast pump equipment
- Engage in understanding of the newly developed lactation program for mothers of neonates with congenital heart disease.
