Join HMHB and our Co-Host, Georgia Perinatal Association, for a one-hour webinar to discuss how childcare programs can support breastfeeding.

Childcare programs play a unique role in breastfeeding by welcoming breastfeeding mothers and making sure staff members are trained to handle breast milk and follow mothers’ feeding plans. Small efforts taken by childcare programs that support breastfeeding families will help women start and continue breastfeeding.

Our presenters  will be Arlene Toole, IBCLC, RLC, EPIC Breastfeeding Program Director,  American Academy of Pediatrics- Georgia Chapter

Claire Eden, IBCLC, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
