Some responses from attendees of this full-day workshop so far:

“Maureen’s workshop was an enlightening and engaging opportunity to develop my clinical skills & understanding, and gain insight on the subject of allergy in the breastfed infant.  The impact of allergy on people’s lives is so underestimated, because it is so common in our population now, however as Maureen says “just because is usual it is not normal”.

“The case study discussions were fascinating: they were real examples brought by the group, and highlighted the long term consequences of early exposure to CMPA and the changing evolving impact that has throughout life.”

Still some spaces left for the Manchester, Leicester and Edinburgh dates – Maureen is keen to get the word out to as many people as possible so please share this with your colleagues and perhaps also the dieticians, allergists and paediatricians you work with.

“Maureen Minchin’s LCGB Workshop on “Allergy and Immune Disorder in the Young Infant” takes delegates on a fascinating journey through the importance of breastfeeding for mother and baby, and the risks of using substitutes for our species-specific milk.

“Participants learned about the wide range of health problems that can occur as a result of formula-feeding of ourselves, our mothers and our grand-mothers – and how to reverse the effects. This was a learning event I am so glad not to have missed.”

Still tickets left for Manchester Saturday 7th May, Leicester Thursday 12th May and Edinburgh Friday 20th May.

“Maureen, I just wanted to say how truly grateful I am to have had the opportunity to listen to you over the LCGB workshop and conference. You have truly inspired me in my IBCLC work, work as a breastfeeding health visitor and as a mother. I have started a trial of excluding cows milk in mine and my toddlers diet after we completed the allergy questionnaire. I was the one with the obsession with dairy products in pregnancy and a toddler who doesn’t sleep well and has cradle cap still.”
