Breastfeeding - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Breastfeeding is a way to nourish your baby with breast milk from your own body. Breast milk is produced in mammary glands. From there it travels through milk ducts to openings in your nipples. When your baby suckles at your breast, your body releases the hormones prolactin and oxytocin. Prolactin controls milk production. And oxytocin controls the release or let-down of milk through milk ducts. Breastfeeding benefits your baby in many ways, such as providing the optimal balance of nutrients, providing antibodies to support your baby's immune system, reducing your baby's risk of asthma, allergies, colic, obesity, diarrhea, and certain ear and lung infections, providing nutrients that are easily digested, and reducing your baby's risk of sudden infant death syndrome. Breastfeeding also benefits you in many ways, such as giving you a convenient inexpensive way to nourish your baby, helping you lose excess body weight, helping your uterus contract after delivery, and increasing the bond between you and your baby, There are four basic breastfeeding positions, cradle hold position, side lying position, cross cradle hold, and football hold. Your baby is born with the instinct to turn to your nipple with an open mouth and suck. To trigger this instinct, lightly stroke your nipple downward from under the baby's nose to the lips. When your baby opens his or her mouth, position your nipple toward the roof of the mouth and pull him or her close to your breast. It may take some time for your baby to learn to get his or her mouth around the nipple or latch on. When properly latched, your baby's mouth will cover your nipple and most of your areola, the darkened area around your nipple, your baby's lips will curl out, and his or her nose will touch your breast. You should hear smooth, regular sucking sounds along with swallowing. Let your baby nurse as long as he or she wants. Many newborn babies nurse 8 to 12 times a day.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"Medical Legal Art wins our firm's highest accolades for professionalism and exhibit quality. In fact, many of the doctors I work with request color copies of your outstanding artwork to show to patients during the informed consent process."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
