Best Breast Feeding Presentation…Ever

No need to look for a good breast feeding presentation any longer.  This is it.  Every expecting family, every pediatrician, everyone you know should spend the 11 minutes needed to watch Todd Wolynn speak about breast feeding.  It’s compelling, it’s funny, it’s painful.  And in the end, it’s inspiring.

The presentation isn’t great simply because of the content, the delivery is excellent (and funny) too and the position is impossible to refute.

Here’s Todd’s brief explanation:

The presentation was at the “Edges of Learning” (www.LPinc-unboxed.org/about/) event November 14-15, 2014. Leadership Pittsburgh sponsored a similar learning experience at the same venue as a TEDx in 2009. This time Leadership Pittsburgh conducted the event using the ‘Unboxed’ format.

The target audience is: EVERYONE… it is a 10,000ft overview of my other Breastfeeding-related presentations re:

  • Breastfeeding = Health Benefits for Mom + Baby + Society.
  • The U.S. Formula Culture
  • The historically poor state of support for U.S. Healthcare to support Breastfeeding.
  • Recognition of Breastfeeding Support ROI for companies and as a nation
  • Paths to success/Call to Action for Breastfeeding Promotion and Support.

  1. This was excellent. I enjoyed it right up to the point of advocating for 3-6 months of paid maternity leave. There was no mention of who was to pay for the leave.
    Again- excellent presentation

    • Hi Rick,
      I appreciate the question “who’s going to pay?” I suggest that we, as a nation, are bearing the costs associated of NOT breastfeeding. Premature weaning is often related (by Moms and research) to be related to their return to work. This is particularly an issue for those women in teaching and nursing/healthcare professions. In addition there is a significant amount research and real-world examples of the positive impact of this benefit. Again, I appreciate the question and I recognize it is not easy point to address or impact.

      The core message of the video was focused on the benefits of breastfeeding and in particular for healthcare providers, to indicate that we need to do a better job in promoting and supporting breastfeeding.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Todd Wolynn
