Neohormones in Reproduction and Lactation

Price: $24.00 USD

In the words of instructor Laurel Wilson, “Human milk has a magic to it we’re only just beginning to understand.” With this course, prepare for a dose of magic!

Wilson, IBCLC, RLC, CLE, CLD, CCCE, a leading expert on the connections between microbiome and human milk, explains how human milk became the tool that allowed our species to evolve. And, she explains how some of the hormones you are already familiar with in lactation — neohormones — are at the very heart of that evolution. 

Wilson’s immense knowledge and expert teaching style, as well as her many key illustrations and graphics, make this complex topic easy to understand, while her connections to topics familiar to lactation providers (birth interventions, skin-to-skin, bonding, and more) draw important connections from science to practice. 

Prepare to appreciate human milk like never before, as you learn the “story behind the story” on how important it is to every area of human functioning: lifelong physical health and disease, immune function, and even mental health and mood stability. You’ll come away fascinated, informed, and more excited than ever before to support families as they provide human milk.
