Christine says 

I was born and raised in South Africa. It was there that I obtained my degree in Dietetics and honed my skills providing breastfeeding education to rural communities. I met my husband during my graduate year. I moved to Portland OR with him in 2004 and started working with WIC that same year. In january of this year we moved down to Ashland where I am now starting my own Private Practice after almost 14 years on the public health sector.

I delivered my daughter in 2008 and Breastfeeding difficulties renewed my interest in pursuing a more Breastfeeding centric career. I certified as a IBCLC in 2011 and just re-certified last year. I now own and operate my own private practice in Ashland Oregon.

late  preterm - defined by birth at 34 weeks 7 days through 36 weeks 7 days.  They are less physiologically and metabolically mature than term infants.  Thus they are at higher risk of morbidity and mortality than term infants. They are often the same size and weight of some term infants, born between 37 weeks and 41 weeks   Because of this fact, late preterm infants may be treated by parents, caregivers and HCP as though they are developmentally mature, when in fact they are at an increased risk for complications.  They need to be evaluated on an individual basis and if necessary suggest guidelines to identify and manage possible complications.

A subject that many shy away from. I think we can all understand why.  It is scary stuff.  According to the CDC it is one of the leading complications causing maternal death in the United states, along with pregnancy related hypertensive disorders and infection.
