Maternal and Infant Nutrition in the First 1,000 Days
This five-module course prepares professionals to speak knowledgeably and with confidence to women and answer questions about the “first 1,000 days” of a child’s life. To support a woman during this time, namely from conception to 2 years postpartum, it is important to be able to describe to her the diet, physical activity, and infant feeding practices that will best support her health and well-being and that of her infant. It is also important to understand the scientific rationale behind recommended practices and how a woman might best work toward meeting those recommendations.
Registered dietitian nutritionists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, certified midwives, certified nurse-midwives, lactation consultants (IBCLC and CLC), and other health professionals who counsel pregnant and lactating women.
