LCANZ – Adelaide Regional Group Education Session

February 15 @ 6:30 pm

LCANZ – Adelaide Regional Group Education session

Monday February 15thth 2021

Our next education session will be held on Monday 15th February 2021

This is a great opportunity to network with fellow IBCLC colleagues, obtain those much needed CERPS and extend our knowledge and skills.

Topic: “Insufficient Glandular Tissue, A Mother’s Perspective and the words we use”.

Presenter: Marianne Dugmore RN RM IBCLC
Guest Presenters: 2 Mothers who experienced IGT with Marianne.

Marianne was born and bred in Adelaide back in the golden age of Baby Boomers. She undertook her general nurse training at the Adelaide Children’s Hospital when mops and buckets were still a nursing tool, and continued on to the Queen Victoria to do her Midwifery training in the days when the baby was put to the breast 3 minutes a side on day one, 5 minutes day two, 7 minutes day on day three and then discharged home doing ten minutes a side. Goodness knows what happened then! In 1983, newly married and with a six week old in arms, she moved to Newcastle with her husband, a career move for him. Marianne thought Newcastle was in England on the river Tyne…..such a parochial little Adeladian! Two years and two more babies later she found herself surrounded in baby boys and joined the Nursing Mothers Association, which saved her life for sure. She undertook the Counselling training and ended up running the Wahroonga ABA Group for ten years in Sydney. Years later, in 2004, she found herself back in Maternity working as a midwife and still passionate about breastfeeding, so she became an IBCLC and worked as the LC on the ward at the Sydney Adventist Hospital for the next twelve years before returning to Adelaide in 2013. Since returning home she has run a private LC practise, visiting mums in their homes in the Adelaide Metropolitan area, as well as working a shift now and then in the private hospital mid units.
