  1. GOLD10 presentation went well. More than 1300 delegates from 51 countries this year!

  2. NCT Conference.

    An enormous conference in a huge venue!

    Was in the same session as Suzanne Colson and ended up spending a lot of time with her. Very much enjoyed Suzanne’s presentation on Biological Nurturing. It was appropriate that we were in the same session as we were both speaking about breastfeeding as innate behaviour in the child – she in the newborn, me in the child. Breastfeeding, as we know, is innate behaviour for the entire duration of breastfeeding.

    Also had a brief chat with Ina May Gaskin but unfortunately was unable to attend her sessions. Ina May showed this fantastic video in her presentation: an elephant giving birth: http://www.bestofyoutube.com/story.php?title=elephant-birth—the-dramatic-struggle-for-life
