News about the 2017 Festival

Discounted early bird ticket sales for the 2017 festival have now ended, but at just £22 for the whole weekend per household, or £12 per single day, the festival is exceedingly good value for money.
Once again at the Mayo Building, Salford Royal Hospital, our line-up for 2017 currently features Paediatrician Dr Victoria Thomas on Natural Term Breastfeeding, Midwife Jenny Clarke on Skin to Skin, Psychologist Dr Amy Brown on why Fed is Not Best, Pharmacist Dr Wendy Jones on Breastfeeding and Medication and a special focus on Breastfeeding Mothers with Chronic Conditions, Specialist Midwife Alison Leyland on Antenatal Banking of Colostrum, and Health Visitor Alex Murphy on When Baby Cannot Be Fed at the Breast, Academic Zainab Yate on Breastfeeding Aversion, Researcher Vicky Greene on how her Breastmilk Bacteria Went Viral – with more speakers and activities yet to be announced!

Programme here.

The Breastfeeding Festival is a NOT FOR PROFIT and all committee members are volunteers: no one involved in the running of the festival takes any income from it. All income in the form of ticket sales and memberships is ploughed back into the festival.
