You are invited to attend the Birthing, Breastfeeding and Bonding Conference 2009: Movement Towards Positive Change in Present Practices. Taking Place on Friday October 2nd and Saturday October 3rd, 2009 in Lethbridge, Alberta, this exciting conference will advocate for gentle birthing, wondrous breastfeeding and intimate bonding. It is the first of its kind to hit Southern Alberta covering a broad spectrum of topics within the two days.

A number of professionals will be traveling from various places, ranging from here in Alberta to South Africa, to speak to the conference attendees. Included in the speaker list is Barbara Harper (RN, Certified Doula, Certified Childbirth Educator, Author), Teresa Pitman (Author and Certified Doula) and Dr. Nils Bergman, all of whom are highly regarded experts in their field.
