Breastfeeding Conferences - It's Just Breastfeeding: How did it get so complicated?

Sydney: Thursday 8th and Friday 9th February 2018


A two day conference held in Sydney featuring guest speakers Molly Pessl and Ginna Wall.


This education is essential for any healthcare professional or individual who works with new families and their newborns.

This in-depth program enables participants to provide accurate, current and consistent information about breastfeeding and lactation in order to support new families in feeding their babies. It is a helpful and effective beginning for education in research-based infant feeding, as well as an excellent update for IBCLCs and others who are interested in applying science to the practice of infant feeding.
