Program Description

This one day seminar will provide participants with the latest innovations and research in the field of lactation from renowned researcher Dr. Peter Hartmann and his team from the University of Western Australia.

We will gain insights into the unique composition of human milk and its significance in relation to the development of the human infant’s metabolic and immune systems.

We will review the many variations of what is considered “normal” in terms of milk intake and feeding patterns so that we can accurately educate our patients.

We will discuss the physiologic principles underlying milk production and learn evidence-based strategies to increase supply.

We will discover how the introduction of new technologies and better management practices can optimize the use of donor human milk and how we can ensure that the use of donor milk supports mothers success in feeding their own preterm or ill infants. 

Finally, we will hear about the most up-to-date research on the use of breastmilk as a non-invasive source of stem cells and what the future may hold in this exciting new field.



Professor Peter Hartmann, AM, BRSC, PhD School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty Life Sciences, The University of Western Australia.

Following the didactic presentations, 

participants will be able to:

  • Compare specific breastmilk constituents to an infant’s metabolic requirements and to its adaptation to the postnatal environment.
  • Identify the many variations in normal breastfeeding patterns related to frequency, volume, fat content and breast productivity.
  • Describe the current research related to the use of donor human milk and it’s value to the nutrition of premature and ill infants.
  • Discuss the physiological principles underlying milk synthesis and the evidence-based strategies to increase production.
  • Discuss the current knowledge, significance and potential roles of breastmilk stem cells.
