About the seminar

Breastfeeding the Premature Infant seminar is a continuation of our successful program Asses & Assist series.

Asses and Assist series is a program which focuses on vital breastfeeding issues and human lactation. In our last seminar on 3rd March we covered on the challenges new mothers face on the postnatal floor.

In this upcoming seminar on 12th March 2019 in Dusit Thani hotel, we focus on another yet crucial topic in breastfeeding which is the challenges in breastfeeding the premature infant.
