Why human colostrum is vital

28 August 2018| Dr. Michel Odent

Registration is NOW CLOSED for Why Human Colostrum Is Vital, the next webinar in the 2018-2019 La Leche League International Webinar Series.

During this informative webinar hosted by LLLI, Dr. Michel Odent explores why human colostrum is actually vital and has important nutritional value, along with a comprehensive overview on the positive impact it has in the birth environment.

From Dr. Odent: “It is now well known that human colostrum is beneficial and even precious. It is also well known that lactation is supposed to start during the hour following birth. In a renewed scientific context, the time has come to turn focus to questions regarding birth environment from a bacteriological perspective. From that perspective, there has been a real revolution in less than a century. The programming of the immune system is at stake.”

Michel Odent, MD, has been in charge of the surgical unit and the maternity unit at the Pithiviers (France) state hospital (1962-1985) and is the founder of the Primal Health Research Centre (London). He is the author of the first article in the medical literature about the initiation of lactation during the hour following birth (1977), of the first article about the use of birthing pools (Lancet 1983), and of the first article applying the ‘Gate Control Theory of Pain’ to obstetrics (1975). See pubmed.com (Odent M). He also created the Primal Health Research database www.primalhealthresearch.com and is the author of 16 books published in 24 languages. Dr. Odent has previously been a consultant to the Professional Advisory Board of LLLI.

Michel Odent is Visiting Professor at the Odessa National Medical University and Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Brasilia.
