Rosa Sorribas is an IBCLC in private practice in Barcelona since 2008. She is a Computer Engineer working on Internet and databases since 1986. In 2003, after her first daughter was born, she and her husband created CrianzaNatural.com, a Spanish portal and forum with information for an attachment parenting style of life. Since then, she's been involved in breastfeeding groups, such as La Leche League and Areola, which she still collaborates with. She offers breastfeeding and babywearing education in Spain, Portugal, Poland, and online. She's been working as doula in home and hospital births. Her website has been the source of dozens of support groups, many breastfeeding conselours and IBCLCs, and has helped hundreds of thousands of families around the world to get their maternity goals. For the last few years she's been very focused in nutrition after a cancer treatment left some issues on her health. She is now running a weekly podcast and video interview to relevant people addressing topics from conception to teens. She lives near the beach of Castelldefels with her two daughters who were homeschooled for 6 years, her lovely husband and her dog Timi.

Milk Composition and Maternal Nutrition: Understanding the Impact and Outcomes
As opposed to being considered the optimal way to feed a baby, breastfeeding should instead be considered the norm. Human milk is the most appropriate food for all babies, even if the mother is experiencing health issues or challenging life conditions. Human milk, despite maternal conditions, is the best source of food for children. Lifestyle, maternal diet, environmental exposures, and stress, among other factors, can impact health outcomes. This leads to the question of whether these factors can also affect human milk composition. Can babies become nutritionally deficient from the composition of their mother’s milk? What is deficiency? How are those thresholds calculated? This presentation will shed light on this subject, which is undergoing a tremendous amount of new research.
