World Breastfeeding Day

The theme for this year’s World Breastfeeding Week is Step up for Breastfeeding - Educate and Support. We’re called upon to strengthen the ways we protect, promote, and support breastfeeding across different levels of society. Together, we can have a far-reaching impact on families as we support them in meeting their feeding goals.

Our speaker Lisa Amir has an extensive background in lactation. She’s been an IBCLC since 1989 and is a seasoned author with over 120 published peer-reviewed articles on breastfeeding. She is also a general practitioner, Editor-in-Chief of the International Breastfeeding Journal, and a Principal Research Fellow at Judith Lumley Centre.

During this webinar, Lisa brings us the very latest research on an important area of breastfeeding support and advocacy. She’ll speak to us about the ways appropriate and comfortable spaces impact the experience of breastfeeding in public, and how these spaces can contribute to weaning. 

This eye-opening presentation includes input from a wide variety of parents, health professionals, and council planning staff. You’ll gain a better understanding of the impact of social expectations as well as what mothers report to be the contributing factors in the best spaces for breastfeeding. 

We’ll have the opportunity to learn how design guidelines could improve everyday shared spaces and also how to optimize design characteristics for dedicated breastfeeding spaces.

We’ll hear this presentation live on August 2nd at 9pm UTC / 2pm PDT / 5pm EDT. Your free registration gives you access to this live event as well as to the recording. Watch and re-watch at your convenience for 4 weeks.
