Breastfeeding clinical trials at UC Davis
2 research studies open to eligible people
open to eligible females
The central hypothesis guiding this project is that having mothers view live video of their babies while they are pumping increases milk volume, caloric density, and maternal pumping experience.
open to all eligible people
The central hypothesis guiding this project is that tailored breastfeeding support, that leverages easily accessible telemedicine technologies, can improve breastfeeding outcomes among late preterm dyads. The long-term goals of this project are to improve maternal and child health and reduce health disparities by designing and implementing evidence-based interventions to improve breastfeeding outcomes for this challenging patient population. This study seeks to identify lactation support practices that improve breastfeeding duration and to test the effect of telemedicine breastfeeding support on breastfeeding duration, among the nearly one in ten mothers who deliver late preterm (34-37 6/7 weeks), as this subpopulation of mothers faces the highest rates of premature breastfeeding cessation
