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 in Austin, TX and the surrounding areas.
The January meeting offers 1.5 CEUs for social workers and features the following educational presentation:
Saving Babies' Lives One Drop of Breastmilk at a Time
Mothers' Milk Bank at Austin, Executive Director
We'll introduce the topic of milk banking for those not familiar, dive into the science of pasteurizing donated breastmilk to treat babies born too sick or too soon, and share stories of our generous donor moms and the babies who receive their milk.
