Lactation Education Workshop Series

Our Lactation Education Workshop Series was created for Birth Workers of Color to come together with our lactation experts to learn about infant nutrition, lactation basics, and gender-affirming care. These workshops are free to community members who identify as Black, Indigenous, or other People of Color.

We welcome anyone interested in learning more about lactation, including those without prior Birth Work experience. Please register for each individual workshop you are interested in attending at bit.ly/LactationWorkshop2024
