GOLD Lactation Conference News

GOLD Lactation is the largest annual breastfeeding conference in the world, and we’re getting ready to bring you some incredible things in our 2020 conference! Join us from March 30 to June 1 for new insights, the latest research, and clinical skills you can apply directly to your practice.

We’ll kick off our live days with Opening Keynote Speaker Bryna Sampey, IBCLC on March 30. Bryna has a diverse professional background, and began her focus on birth work after the birth of her first child. A mother of four, Bryna is passionate about continuing education, reflex integration in lactation care, and advocacy for equitable treatment for LGBTQ+ families in birth and lactation.


During “Breastfeeding With Ease: The Impact of Infant Reflex Emergence and Integration”, attendees will explore the important role played by reflexes in infant feeding. Bryna will address the process of reflex emergence and integration, the importance of reflexes in breastfeeding/chestfeeding, and the impact of disorganized or absent reflexes. We’ll also examine the impact of trauma and the lactation consultant’s role in assessment and referral.

As with all our Keynote Presentations, this event is free to the public! Registration gives access to both live presentations of this webinar, as well as to the recording.
