Designed to help you stay current on LLL and breastfeeding topics of interest, each hour-long webinar will be available for viewing for one month at the time and place most convenient for you.

In this month’s webinar, renowned health psychologist and IBCLC Dr. Kathleen Kendall-Tackett presents a comprehensive overview of what you need to know about the root causes and risk factors of postpartum depression.

  • Learn about the complex relationship between depression and breastfeeding cessation.
  • Learn about the relationship of depression, PTSD, and preterm birth.
