The concept of bodywork for infants with breastfeeding difficulties is still new (especially outside of the USA) and there is not much published evidence to support it. However, clinical experience seems to suggest that bodywork is a useful tool to help some infants. Through the presentation of case studies, this webinar shares clinical experience related to common questions asked by lactation specialists: When might bodywork help a baby? To whom can I refer the infant? What might the results be?
