La Leche League of Arizona Area Conference 2016

Birthing From Within and Bradley Method® natural childbirth classes offered in Arizona: convenient to Chandler, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Payson
La Leche League of Arizona hosted the "Taking Care of Mom, Making More Milk for Baby" conference for Parents and Professionals last weekend, August 26-28, 2016.  The highlight of the weekend was keynote presenter, Diana West, IBCLC, who is also a La Leche League leader currently living in New Jersey.  
Diana is an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) in private practice, Director of Media Relations for La Leche League International, and an accomplished author.  She is the co-author of Sweet Sleep: Nighttime Strategies for the Breastfeeding Family, the 8th edition of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk, Breastfeeding After Breast and Nipple Procedures, and ILCA's popular Clinician's Breastfeeding Triage Tool

Here is her entire bio from the conference pamphlet:

I was able to attend these presentations from the 8 that she offered over the course of the weekend conference: 

  • Breastfeeding and Cosmetic Surgery
  • Knipple Knowledge
  • Infant Sleep Training: History, Research, and Outcomes
  • Making Friends with the Girls
  • Making More Milk
  • Where Baby Sleeps: Ethics and Outcomes

I can't wait to apply what we heard this weekend to the information we share in classes.  

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE AMAZING SESSIONS!!

I also learned more about how to better support exclusively pumping mothers (Jennifer Widdows), and mothers who are going back to work after maternity leave (Desiree Allison, IBCLC). There was also a very interesting presentation on community milk sharing through private arrangement and milk banks (Dr. Angie Bond). And it was wonderful to attend an art session led by Rochelle Trotman-Norman - exactly what I needed to decompress after all the information I was acquiring over the weekend.

Here is a visual look at the weekend:

It's official - made it to the conference!!

















SPB Gift Basket was a raffle prize for the LLL Live, Latch, Love event on Friday evening

















Room is ready for my presentation early on Saturday morning!

*Birthing From Within
*The Bradley Method
*What to do when your birth plan twists and turns











The "mommy trading cards" we made in the session with Rochelle Trotman-Norman. We made one to take home and one to trade.



















After two days without Mommy, Otter insisted on coming to the conference on Sunday so that we could be together. She was well-behaved and an absolute pleasure, as many breastfed, AP children are.

She colored and read quietly, and had fun playing with her dolls! I am also curious to know what she picked up from the two presentations she heard...I am guessing I will find out as we have our car conversations over the next few days.
