Keynote Speaker Sejal Fichadia

We’ll be kicking things off on April 3 with a practice-changing Opening Keynote from Sejal Fichadia, IBCLC! Our Keynote events are always free to the public and an exciting way for everyone in the field to tap into  the very latest in lactation education. Registration includes access to both live presentations as well as to the recording, allowing for plenty of flexibility to watch and re-watch.

Join us at “Calm & Regulated: Rethinking Our Approach to Latch and Positioning” to gain eye-opening insights into lactation care and the role of the lactation professional. Sejal will be sharing her thoughts on the intricate factors at play beyond latch and positioning. Get ready to learn how the lactation provider impacts the dyad’s feelings of safety during a consult as well as how this experience impacts client self-reliance. We’ll also explore the ways this new mindset can shift our approach to developing a neurophysiologically inclusive feeding plan.

This event marks the beginning of this year’s conference where we’ll be learning from 31 international speakers from April 3 to June 30. Come update your skills as you connect with your colleagues! The conference program is packed with hot topics, emerging trends, and the newest research.
