The International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA) 2014 Annual Conference & Meeting, Breastfeeding in the Real World: Meeting the Challenges, will be held July 23-26, at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

The ILCA Annual Conference is the premier lactation education and professional development event of the year. The Conference provides a rich learning environment for lactation consultants, midwives, physicians, breastfeeding counselors, researchers, pharmacists, nurses, doulas and other health professional who assist mothers and babies with breastfeeding. It offers the current or aspiring International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) information on cutting-edge, evidence-based practice and research in optimal breastfeeding care and support for mothers and babies.

This year’s conference focuses on what mothers experience in the real world. As we all know, what we teach is not always what mothers do! In this conference we will explore the choices, challenges, and practices of mothers in the real world. You will leave the conference with greater understanding and skills in helping mothers from diverse cultures and lifestyles fit breastfeeding into their day-to-day lives. Several sessions address equity and diversity in breastfeeding, a hot topic in health care today.
