LCGB members benefit from a reduced rate for LCGB organised education events where possible.

LCGB events offer invaluable up-to-date, research based information, and intend to offer Continuing Education Recognition Points (CERPs) as standard.

The LCGB annual conference & AGM

LCGB is known for introducing international speakers to the UK for the first time; these speakers and the information and practice they bring are now widely recognised & respected by health professionals and lactation specialists in this country.

Delegates say about our conferences: ‘Brilliant—so useful for our practice’, ‘Thought provoking & clear method of explaining research’, ‘Very helpful’. ‘What an impact—should go nationwide!’ ‘Very very informative and will apply as soon as I go back to work! Great interaction and content’, ‘Incredibly interesting topic’

Previous LCGB conference speakers have included: Diane Wiessinger, Linda Smith, Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Joy Noel-Weiss, Elizabeth Brooks, Karleen Gribble, Jack Newman, Nils Bergman, Lars Hanson, Peter Hartmann, Donna Geddes, as well as exceptional speakers from home soil, for example Professor Helen Ball. See our LCGB Conference page for more information about the next conference.

Other lactation education events

As far as LCGB is aware, these breastfeeding educational events are free from commercial sponsorship by companies associated with the baby feeding industry as stipulated in the WHO International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes.

See our Calendar and IBCLC Education pages.

LCGB members benefit from a reduced rate for some of these events including those run by Association of Lactation Consultants of Ireland (ALCI).
