New and expecting parents will be introduced the connections between the heart, brain and breastfeeding and learn about mother’s milk, yoga, meditation and inspiration.

Pre- and postnatal professionals will attend to learn about the growing evidence related to marijuana, opioids and breastfeeding; pregnancy-related anxiety and depression and resources to support women; and more.

The keynote speaker is best selling author and breastfeeding advocate Kimberly Seals Allers.

Healthy Baby Summit invites parents to bring their babies, lactation spaces will be available.

The event will culminate with a celebration of the 35th anniversary of Mothers’ Milk Bank, celebrating 35 years as the nation’s second oldest nonprofit milk bank, providing donor human milk for medically fragile babies across the nation.
