Healthy Children Project, Inc. faculty members Karin Cadwell and Kajsa Brimdyr were featured speakers at the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative’s Annual Conference November 15-16.

Karin spoke on day one about the effects of synthetic oxytocin and other birth practices on infant feeding based on her recent research.  Kajsa led a session on the second day of the event titled “Skin-to-Skin Contact: Moving the Conversation On” that focused on what we have learned and where we need to go.

The conference is Europe’s largest on infant feeding for health professionals and others involved in the care of mothers and babies. To see the complete program agenda, click here.
