Being a Detective and a Scientist: A Day of Case Studies Virtual Conference

Date Change! Saturday, January 13, 2023 9:00 AM EDT - 5:15 PM EDT


Catherine Watson Genna


Nancy Mohrbacher


Barbara D. Robertson


Jessica Beemsterboer

Acting as both a detective AND a scientist as a lactation consultant... How is this done? What is the process?
We will follow four amazing lactation experts through real cases to study their methods of gathering clues, evidence, and information, supporting their clients, and solving cases. Learning through case studies has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to absorb and incorporate new ideas and information.

Barbara Robertson, owner of LactaLearning, has again created a one-day conference that everyone will want to attend. Barbara will speak herself and she has asked Catherine Watson Genna, Nancy Mohrbacher, and Jessica Beemsterboer to be part of a one-day, eight-session conference that can be attended live or watched as recordings at a later date. You will have access to all the presentations and support materials until April 30, 2024.

Recordings will be available after 1-19-23.

Learn from some of the best in our field and discover how Cathy, Nancy, Barbara, and Jessica work with clients.

You do not have to attend all or any of this conference live to participate! All of the sessions will be recorded so you can watch them at your leisure for months after the live conference day.

This conference uses a hybrid-learning model: in addition to the live Zoom meeting day, all materials will be hosted on our online learning system Thinkific including bonus resources from our speakers.

Five Reasons You Will Love Our Conference!


You will learn the process of what a lactation consultation needs to be effective. What information do you need, how to ask the right questions in the right way, putting all the information together, working with the client to create a care plan, and follow-up will all be covered.


Real Case Studies provide unique insight into how you might change your practice to become a more effective lactation helper.


The combination of watching live but having the option to watch recordings later AND have access to the bonus materials is invaluable.


Having four different presenters to watch and learn from so you can pick and choose what might work for you in your practice.


We offer so many resources for you so you can know exactly where to go to get accurate and current breastfeeding information.
