The Breastfeeding Advert Launch Event
Sat 21 January 2017, 13:00 – 16:00 GMT
The event is now sold out! Please do add your name to the waiting list if you would like to.
The official launch event for the "Human Milk, Tailor-Made For Tiny Humans" advertising campaign. An independent advertising initiative co-created by parents to share the science of human milk and breastfeeding with other parents, and our wider community.
We will screen the advert and present the wider project, and we're very excited to be joined by guest speakers
- Dr Amy Brown, Professor and Researcher in the Psychology dept of Swansea University and Author of 'Breastfeeding Uncovered' (http://breastfeedinguncovered.co.uk/).
- Emma Picket IBCLC, Chair of the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers and author of 'You've Got It In You' (http://amzn.to/2bpKsCA).
- Dr Natalie Shenker, Co-Founder of the Herts Milk Bank (http://www.hertsmilkbank.com/) and Researcher at Imperial College London
who have all been instrumental in supporting the advert project to come to life.
Tickets are £10 per adult (plus the booking fee) and free for children. Children coming to the event remain the responsibiity of their carers at all times.
UPDATE REGARDING CHILDREN AT THE EVENT: I'm sorry to say that we have run out of spaces for children . Every free ticket attributed to a child guarantees them a place within the conference annexe playroom, and this space is now at capacity. I'm very sorry if this causes difficulties.
There will be some refreshments in the room, and there's also a café/restaurant downstairs, and lots of restaurants on the doorstep.
Please feel free to donate any extra amount if you would like to, using the "Donate" option. Any profit made will be used to fund promotional activities and materials for the advert, there's so much we can do. Thank you!
We will also make a donation to the Herts Milk Bank http://www.hertsmilkbank.com/, being set up by our collaborator and speaker Natalie Shenker, together with Gillian Weaver, co-founder of the UK Association of Milk Banking (UKAMB).
See you there!!
EDIT on Sept 28th: WE HAVE NOW SOLD OUT!
We have held some spaces back as we have some plans that mean a touch more space around the edges of the audience is a good idea, specially with the number of little ones coming to the event with us. We'll get a little further down the organising road and perhaps have a few more tickets available closer to the time. Please feel free to add your name to the waiting list and we will contact you if and when anything becomes available.
Donations are still open. If you would like to make a donation towards the project, please click on 'Tickets'. We will gratefully accept the support. Thank you!
Meanwhile, a Massive THANK YOU to all of you who have booked and made this such a success already.
