We present you the X Spanish Breastfeeding Congress organized by the Baby Friendly Initiative Spain and to be held at the Congress Palace of Santiago de Compostela on 4th, 5th and 6th April 2019.
It is a great pride for us, and at the same time It is a great responsibility, to be able to organize this X Congress. One more year, we will be able to listen to many expert speakers in the field, both nationally and internationally, who will present the most current knowledge in breastfeeding. We will share a variety of conferences, round tables, workshops, oral communications and posters that will allow us to update our knowledge and share experiences throughout the three days of the congress.
During all this time, health professionals, students and mothers of breastfeeding support groups, will share concerns and scientific knowledge in order to contribute to the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding among all.
With this year's theme, "Drops of life, source of health", we want to highlight breast milk as a live food that gives life and promotes the health of mothers and their children, both in the short and long term.
The congress will take place in one of the main historic cities of Spain, Santiago de Compostela, a town declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a destination for many pilgrims who walk from different parts of the world. Compostela has an important cultural, architectural, artistic, and gastronomic richness but above all it stands out for the hospitality and warmth of its people.
We hope that this program we have prepared with great enthusiasm, will respond to your expectations, count on your presence in this tenth congress and also that you will enjoy our beloved Compostela.
José Manuel Martín Morales
President of the X Spanish Congress of Breastfeeding
