Updated terms and Conditions - Covid-19 Vaccinations:
For your safety and that of our community, all APA staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. It is also a requirement that all presenters, tutors, convenors and registrants (or the equivalent) are fully vaccinated with a TGA approved COVID-19 vaccine in order to attend a face to face event by 1 November 2021 for NSW, VIC, TAS events and 1 December 2021 for WA, SA, QLD, ACT, NT events. Proof of double vaccination or medical exemption, will be required when checking in to the event.

Dr Sharon Perrella is a Research Fellow at the Hartmann Human Lactation Research Group, UWA. Sharon has a clinical background with a special interest in preterm breastfeeding and milk production. Since PhD graduation Sharon has used ultrasound and intraoral vacuum measurement to examine sucking dynamics and suck-swallow-breathe coordination, while her current work focuses on the identification and management of women at risk of reduced breastfeeding duration. Sharon works one day/week as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant at One For Women and enjoys sharing the art and science of breastfeeding with health professionals to achieve great outcomes for families.

In this presentation Sharon will review the current evidence around sucking dynamics, milk production and normal feeding patterns, as well as common breastfeeding issues such as nipple and breast pain, low milk supply and oral anomalies.

If you have specific questions for Sharon, she would be happy to receive them via email up to 5 days before her presentation. She will address them on the evening. Please send your queries to Alison Wroth at alison@hillviewphysio.com.au.
