This lecture/course is intended to familiarize the medical and allied health community in the recognition of the often-overlooked muscle-related structural barriers to breastfeeding. It provides a discussion of clues to the predisposing factors of these barriers and explores their affect on infant “functional mobility” as it relates to the achievement of successful breastfeeding.
It is intended to improve the clinician’s assessment skills as they work with the mother/infant dyad in resolving breastfeeding difficulties/dysfunctions by development of insight into these often hidden and profoundly destructive structural manifestations.
Recognition of these barriers with an emphasis on self-help techniques and when/who to refer parents/caregivers to for help, together with how to best meet their teaching/training needs across cultural barriers, is discussed. The ultimate purpose is the achievement of insight to improve the clinician’s evaluation process, better enabling them to promote, enhance and even save the breastfeeding experience of the families served.
To be a successful advocate for truly functional breastfeeding that promotes joyful, prolonged retention, your assessment skills of infants’ musculature must look beyond oro/myofacial structures using a whole-body approach.

The IATP Organization is comprised of allied heath professionals dedicated to improved health through the discovery, management and study of tethered oral tissues. Our means of communication is a privately maintained FaceBook Forum that’s purpose “is to identify and locate providers that offer services to support the assessment and treatment of tethered oral tissues and to identify and locate other IATP members, as well as to offer a forum for the sharing of information, research or ideas of interest to fellow members of the IATP.”
This week IATP is holding it’s first international Webinar Series in which How B.E.S.T. Relates To Breast© (Basic Evaluation of Structural Tension) is included.
Presented by the California Breastfeeding Coalition, the California Breastfeeding Summit is the state’s premier gathering that establishes a yearly collective direction to increase exclusive breastfeeding rates among all populations in California.
The Summit is a forum to learn best practices, acquire new skills, gain resources, and is a catalyst for change at the state and local levels. There is collaboration and networking with an estimated 450 nurses, lactation consultants and educators, peer counselors, dietitians, physicians, health educators, birth educators and doulas, and exhibitors.
This Summit combines innovative project, research, and evidence-based best practice presentations with clinical skill development. The Summit showcases speakers with exceptional expertise and presentation skills in order to provide quality information to attendees. The Summit also features special poster sessions with researchers presenting their findings and answering questions from Summit attendees.
Though the actual delivery process is managed in many ways for the best possible outcome, it is still highly likely that despite these best of efforts, baby’s response to the birth process is traumatic. It’s really no one’s fault! It is simply a hidden barrier that baby has developed from his/her exposure to the developmental and birth process. When this structural problem is properly acknowledged, evaluated and therapeutically relieved – normal functional movement in baby is restored. The joy of breastfeeding is saved. Tears of anguish become tears of joy, as this connection miracle is reborn with family peace and sanity restored. — Judy Terwilliger
