A series of lectures on the early stages of human life, from gestation to infancy. Each session is designed to stimulate dialogue between physiology and psychology, as well as to inform and clarify.
On Sunday 21/04, the third lecture focuses on breastfeeding. Why do a significant proportion of women in Greece decide not to breastfeed, despite the many advantages of breastfeeding and mother’s milk? Which aspects of breastfeeding do women find challenging at first? Which national and international initiatives promote the adoption of breastfeeding? Which breastfeeding-friendly policies are there to encourage mothers? How does the desire to breastfeed relate to the mother's mood and emotional state, and how do these affect her behavior?
