Breastfeeding Uncovered with Professor Amy Brown – Brain Feast Session

Across the world mothers are urged to breastfeed, but in Western society many find this a difficult task. Those who stop can feel demoralised and unsure as to why such a desired, encouraged and biologically normal behaviour can appear so challenging in reality. In this panel, Prof Amy Brown will examine why this continues to happen, revealing how complex social and cultural messages work against new mothers, and what we can do to reverse this.

Prof Amy Brown is a Professor in Child Public Health in the Department of Public Health, Policy and Social Sciences at Swansea University, UK. Her research explores the psychology of maternal and infant health and wellbeing, particularly during the first 1001 days of pregnancy and the first two years of life. Prof Amy Brown is author of Breastfeeding Uncovered, Why Starting Solids Matters and The Positive Breastfeeding Book.

Check out other events taking place as part of Breastfeeding & Beyond on June 13th!
