Thanks Angelina, that sounds really interesting and useful.

Is there any way we can get a summary of the meeting and the discussions for women out of London? It would be good to be able to feedback to our networks. I know we have the BHIVA guidance in place (or we will in April) but the dilemma doesn't go away for women who want to breastfeed.

Dear Jane

Certainly. I will liase with the presenters after the meeting and then provide a summary on here which you can share with your networks. I am also hoping that some UKCAB members will attend so they too can feedback on their perspectives of/after the meeting. I will do my best to try and provide feedback as soon as I can.
