The speaker for this year's seminar is Catherine Watson Genna, B.S.,
IBCLC. Catherine is an international board-certified lactation consultant
in private practice in New York City. Certified in 1992, Catherine is
particularly interested in helping moms and babies breastfeed when they
have medical challenges. She speaks to health care professionals around
the world on assisting breastfeeding babies with anatomical, genetic or
neurological problems. Her presentations and her writing feature her clinical
photographs, which have also been published widely. Her team has just
wrapped up a research project using ultrasound to examine tongue movements
of babies with tongue-tie before and after frenotomy (office treatment)
and is preparing to publish. Her current project looks at coordination
of swallowing and breathing in babies with posterior tongue-tie.
Catherine is the author of “Selecting and Using Breastfeeding Tools:
Improving Care and Outcomes” (Hale 2009) and “Supporting Sucking
Skills in Breastfeeding Infants” (Jones and Bartlett Publishers
2008, 2nd edition Jones and Bartlett Publishers 2013) as well as professional
journal articles. Catherine is still an active La Leche League Leader
and runs a monthly toddler meeting in Queens as well as an online group.
Catherine currently serves as associate editor for the United States Lactation
Consultant Association journal Clinical Lactation. Her own two offspring
(who were, of course, breastfed) are a seminarian and a registered nurse.
