In “Breastfeeding trauma: how can we recognise and support mothers who wanted to breastfeed but were unable to meet their goals?”, Dr. Brown will take us through the research on early cessation of breastfeeding and the resulting experience of trauma. Michelle Emanuel will present “Interoception: Beyond the Homunculus....the real Sixth Sense and its primary function as Sensory input to the Autonomic Nervous System” where attendees will learn about the functioning of interoceptive pathways, how compromised systems can be linked to complex breastfeeding issues, and the ways this can be addressed clinically. In our final presentation of the day “Hold the Phone! Diet Does Matter During Breastfeeding: Implication of Diet on Fatty Acid Composition and Other Nutrients” Laurel Wilson will share the latest research on the impact of diet on breast milk composition.

These presentations will be shared live on Tuesday January 16.
