BRUNSWICK, Georgia: April 5, 2010 – According to the American Academy
of Pediatrics, human breast milk is preferred for all infants. To provide
health care professionals the education and tools they need to promote
and support breastfeeding in their communities, Southeast Georgia Health
System is hosting the seminar, “Breastfeeding: The Gift for Life.”
This annual event is scheduled for Friday, April 30, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. in
the Linda S. Pinson Conference Center on the Health System’s Brunswick
Campus, 2415 Parkwood Drive.
The seminar speaker is Linda Smith, an American College of Childbirth Educators
Fellow and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Smith is
best known for her books and study guides, including the Comprehensive
Lactation Consultant Exam Review. She is a private practice lactation
consultant in Dayton, Ohio, and has taught Lamaze childbirth classes for
20 years. Smith helped form the International Board of Lactation Consultant
Examiners and the International Lactation Consultant Association. She
will speak on such topics as how the birthing process can impact breastfeeding.

Florida, and states from as far away as Tennessee and North Carolina,
