Melbourne attendee 

‘It heartens me to see so many passionate people come together to broaden their knowledge of breastfeeding and sharing information. Supporting women on their breastfeeding journeys has been proven to increase the numbers of breastfed babies and the length of time they are breastfed; let’s do more of this!’

Perth attendee 

‘It was relevant to my current practice in meeting the needs of the women that I see. It was great to see information relating to changes in practice. Treasure, in particular was an amazing presenter and her content was so interesting with her presentation style being so engaging

Brisbane attendee
