Join us for networking and education for professionals supporting the perinatal population, including pregnancy, delivery and the first year of a child's life. This meeting is open to all professionals that work with expecting and new parents.
The August meeting will be held at the Mothers' Milkbank Austin and feature a facility tour. The meeting will also include the following education presentation:
Breastfeeding & Women with Obesity
Presenters will provide background information about perinatal risks faced by women with obesity, and the many barriers to success: cultural, mechanical, physiological, and emotional. Included will then offer tips and suggestions for how to help these women be more successful in their breastfeeding journey.
