  Title Development of an integrative relationship in the care of the breastfeeding newborn: Lactation consultant and chiropractor
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2009 Jun;10(1):626-632
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

As physiologically normal birth has yielded to medicalization, the hormonal milieu that directs establishment of breastfeeding is compromised and lactation consultants are confronted with increasing numbers of infants whose innate competency is threatened. The compromised infant reorganizes, rapidly adapting his behaviors to ensure his survival. Compensatory behaviors may or may not facilitate feeding, and may force the infant to rely upon others to accomplish feeding. Interventions that support the infant threaten his competency at breast and risk his ability to direct his relational world, which is the foundation of his developmental success. Often compensatory behaviors lead to premature weaning, as they can be inefficient and physically and emotionally injurious to the mother, thus hope of reclamation becomes less certain. Chiropractic intervention, when applied skillfully and in collaboration with the lactation consultant can support full competency in feeding and offer the infant the opportunity to reclaim his full human potential.
