GOLD Lactation Conference News

We’re getting ready to mark the start of our GOLD Lactation Online Conference 2024 live on April 2 with an exciting Opening Keynote event with Jacqueline Kincer, IBCLC, CSOM!

Free public registration is available here:

Jacqueline is an experienced and active lactation support provider. She founded and works in private practice at Holistic Lactation. She also manufactures herbal supplements for lactation, hosts a podcast, and runs an online breastfeeding support community.

Keynote Speaker Jacqueline Kincer

Her presentation “Diving into the Nuances of Clinical Sucking Skills: Bridging Infant Oral Function and Breast Physiology” is packed with practice-changing insights and information you won’t want to miss! She’ll explore the physiological essentials that play a key part in breastfeeding success, and she’ll also guide us through the interaction between infant mouth mechanics and maternal breast physiology. We’ll focus on what it takes to establish a proper latch, the obstacles to good sucking skills, and how we can detect problems early on. You’ll leave with a new level of understanding when it comes to crafting individualized care plans and functioning as a key player in the healthcare team that empowers parents through practical strategies.

This event kicks off our full conference which runs from April 2 to July 2! We’re coming together with over 4500 international attendees to tap into the newest education from 29 expert speakers.
