We begin our live presentations with Opening Keynote Speaker Kathleen Kendall-Tackett on April 1.

Attendees will explore the underlying physiological mechanisms of breastfeeding and mental health to understand their intricate connection. Covering topics including mother-infant sleep and strategies to increase oxytocin, this presentation is sure to impact the care you provide to families. As always, this event is free for the general public, so invite your friends and colleagues to learn along with you!

Live conference presentations will take place throughout the month of April. Live days are a great way to enjoy the interactive chat pod, ask speakers your questions, and share your insights with fellow delegates. If you can’t attend the live events or if there are any presentations that you want to re-watch, simply click through to the recordings section in the delegate dashboard and watch presentations at your convenience throughout the conference period.

Live presentations will wrap up on April 29 at our Closing Keynote. Lindsey Hookway will share “Addressing Complex Sleep Problems While Optimizing Breastfeeding”, an eye-opening presentation brimming with evidence-based information and concepts. This is a fantastic opportunity for attendees to learn about situations commonly faced by families, what tools can help to empower parents, and how to maintain the breastfeeding relationship while addressing sleep issues. This presentation is also a free event for the general public, so reserve your seat and learn with Lindsey!
