Lecture: Birth, Babies, Breastfeeding, and Bonding
Tuesday April 30th in Brisbane
I call this “Mother Nature’s Superb Design” because our female bodies are indeed superbly designed for all of these pleasurable activities. In fact, breastfeeding and bonding naturally follow pregnancy, labor and birth for all mammals, because this is essential for survival of the species. Conversely, when we disrupt birth (in any species!), we run the risk of disrupting these critical and delicate processes… you can find out more on the night!
NB: This was a sold-out talk in Melbourne and can’t be repeated this year
Please book early to avoid disappointment
Passage to Motherhood Conference
On May 17-18 at the Gold Coast, Australia: I’ll be talking at The Passage to Motherhood conference, with some other favorite topics: Oxytocin, liquid love, (see my Hormonal Physiology report information below) as well as a workshop on Leaving Well Alone after birth!
