SPEAKERS

Professor Amy BrownKeynote speaker

Professor Amy Brown is based in the Department of Public Health, Policy and Social Sciences at Swansea University in the UK where she directs the new research centre ‘LIFT’ : Lactation, Infant Feeding and Translation. With a background in psychology, she first became interested in the increasingly global issue of low breastfeeding rates
when breastfeeding her first baby. Three babies and a PhD later she has spent the last sixteen years exploring psychological, cultural and societal barriers to breastfeeding, with an emphasis on understanding how we can shift our perception of breastfeeding from an individual mothering issue, to a wider public health problem.

Professor Brown has published over 100 papers exploring the barriers women face in feeding their baby during the first year. She is author of eight books on infant feeding including ‘the Positive breastfeeding book’, ‘Breastfeeding Uncovered’ and ‘Let’s talk about feeding your baby’.

Her research, articles and books can be found on her website www.professoramybrown.co.uk and she can be found across social media as ‘Professor Amy Brown’
