Unraveling the Mysteries of Human Milk: The Fascinating Role of Neohormones, Epigenetics, the Microbiome and More!

In celebration of IBCLC day, we’re thrilled to offer this free presentation from one of our most popular speakers, Laurel Wilson. This an exciting time and the recent explosion of new research is providing a new look at the complexities of breastfeeding and human milk that we are only just starting to understand. As IBCLCs we are on the front lines of helping to translate this new knowledge into something meaningful for the families we care for. Join us for Laurel’s talk titled, “Unraveling the Mysteries of Human Milk: The Fascinating Role of Neohormones, Epigenetics, the Microbiome and More!” to gain insight into some of the newest scientific discoveries about human milk.

Join us LIVE on March 6, 2019!

As humans evolved, the milk specific to nourishing, protecting, and developing their babies went through an incredible transformation. The unique demands of having placentas, growing large brains, and making milk for infants that required rapid maturation post-delivery led to a unique set of neohormones. Neohormones not only facilitate reproduction in the mammal, but they direct the development of mammary tissue and are a significant component of human milk. Neohormones interact with the epigenome and microbiome, targeting certain genes to lead to reproductive success for the mammal. Human milk prepares the infant’s epigenome and microbiome for long-term health and adaptation to the environment. Learn about these fascinating components in human milk and the extraordinary role they play in human development.
