Full program description
"When breastfeeding challenges occur, sometimes the problem is not with the mother’s technique, but rather with the baby himself- barriers within the alignment and tone of his body causing abnormal function and preventing normal breastfeeding".
Dr. Gerner dives into very detailed and specific cranial, spinal, muscular and dural anatomy relating to the breastfeeding infant as well as the long term neurological consequences of these untreated subluxation patterns. Included are charts and video demonstrations designed to be very practical and useful to you in your daily pediatric practice.
