Our 25th annual International Breastfeeding Conference held January 15-18 in Deerfield Beach, Florida, was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who took part in our fun, educational and inspiring week. Here’s what some of the attendees had to share about our event:
- Overall the conference was absolutely amazing. All the presenters were terrific. This event is much needed for the CLC/IBCLC community. It really ties everything that we learn and practice in our daily profession together.
- This year was my 2nd year attending the conference, and I love the Pre-Conference just as much as the Core Conference. I was looking forward to it this year, and it did not disappoint. Thank you!
- My favorite conference ever, a wholehearted event. LOVE LOVE LOVE
