About GOLD Lactation

Welcome to the GOLD Lactation Online Conference! We are the largest annual breastfeeding conference in the world, serving close to 3200 delegates from around 80 different countries every year.

GOLD Lactation is hosted by GOLD Learning Online Education and has been bringing quality continuing education to lactation professionals, peer supporters and students since 2007. Our online format allows access to the knowledge and experience of industry leaders, all from the comfort of your own home or workplace. The knowledge within the field of study of human lactation is growing and changing at an incredible rate. Our goal with GOLD Lactation is to help bridge the gap between established protocols and practices and the rapid growth of new research. Join us during the live days of the conference to interact in real time with the speakers and your fellow delegates and watch the recordings as many times as you want! With the recordings you can pause, rewind or fast forward to allow you to make notes or re-watch certain sections of a presentation, allowing you to learn at your own pace.

All of our conference sessions are accredited, and delegates are able to collect educational hours and download one or more of the following certificates: CME's, CNE's, CERP's, CEU's and CPE's. With our large selection of international speakers, our add-on packages that provide focused education on a particular topic and our associated special events on GOLD Learning such as our lactation ethics package, tongue-tie symposium, and annual alumni event, GOLD Lactation has something for everyone and is always growing. We look forward to having you as part of our vibrant GOLD community!
