- Susan Small, MSN, APRN, NNP-BC, IBCLC, Putnam, CT, USA
"The presentation, the evolution of each step, the language - simple and easy-to-understand, the repetition, the combination of video, PDFs and downloads made this an OUTSTANDING course. I feel more knowledgeable, more helpful/supportive and a desire to learn more, share more and help more."
- Roxane Provence Thompson, doula, Mill Valley, California, USA
“I wholeheartedly recommend this course for Dietitians working with women, ante- or post-natally, supporting breastfeeding, infant feeding and childhood nutrition, but the topic of the Microbiome and Epigenetics is an important area in the promotion of health and nutrition for all”
- Carine Henry RD, Paediatric Specialist, Freelance and Consultant Dietitian, UK
