A casual, drop in meeting for breastfeeding moms and their babies.
When: Wednesday May 15th, 2013
Time: 1:15-2:30 (ish) p.m.
Where: Ontario Early Years Centre, 710 Cumberland Road, Burlington ON
No registration required, everyone welcome!
At the beginning of the drop in, Camilla Avis, a Registered Nurse, RN, BHSc(N), International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and Certified Childbirth Educator (CCCE) will answer any and all breastfeeding questions! This will then be followed by an informal discussion and information session with myself on the rising allergic conditions in our children.
Although eczema, asthma, and food allergies are common in infancy and childhood they are not normal and expected rites of passage for children. Why is there a surge in these allergic and inflammatory conditions? What are the causes? During this drop in meeting I will discuss protective factors and risk factors for these conditions (including some during pregnancy), the strong link to food allergies and/or sensitivities and safe, gentle, and effective long term treatment options including nutrition, supplementation, herbs, and homeopathic medicine.
