Health Care Provider Seminar

8:00am- 4:00pm



The technical nature of this program requires much concentration; therefore, if you are bringing your baby into sessions, please remember that in keeping with La Leche League tradition, baby’s needs are to be respected and attended to quickly.


We ask that parents be aware of any situation, including happy baby noises, which may break the concentration of those attending the session to acquire credits.


Please refrain from side conversations during sessions. Your consideration for other attendees is truly appreciated.


Please remember:


  • Strollers are not allowed in conference area.

  • High chairs will not be available during lunch.

  • Rooms are climate controlled, please bring a sweater.
