Hybrid Breastfeeding & Lactation Symposium on 23 June 2023

Registrations are free of charge

The Europe edition of Medela´s Breastfeeding & Lactation Symposium 2023 will take place in a hybrid format with live-streaming from Munich, Germany. It is targeted towards healthcare professionals keen to learn about the latest scientific evidence in the field of human milk and lactation and to share local experience towards improving the quality of lactation care and infant feeding in Europe.

Four international speakers will provide most recent advances in the topics of lactation as a biological system, research in the mother-breast milk-infant "triad" and initiation of lactation best practice in the neonatal unit and Maternity Ward.

To bridge to the regional perspective, two European experts will focus on the need of prioritizing own mother´s milk and collecting standardized metrics to improve infant outcomes in the neonatal unit.

Two panel discussions will allow attendees to participate on-site and via the virtual platform to send questions to the speakers and actively participate during the live discussions.
