With a PhD in Pharmacy and member of the Board for the French breastfeeding coordination (CoFAM), Frédéric Roussel is committed to many projects that support breastfeeding and parenting including the breastfeeding-friendly pharmacies initiative (PHAAM), Allaitement Maternel 2.0 (newsletter), P.A.P.'S (support for the fathers of breastfed children) and SOS Allaitement 75. He is a valuable proponent in France of Suzanne Colson’s Biological Nurturing approach, with both parents and professionals.
So we have quite naturally entrusted him with the mission of sharing on Suzanne Colson’s conference at the 2019 WBD, on the latest findings regarding Biological Nurturing.
With a PhD in oral medicine and dental surgery, Adriana Agachi mainly works with children in her Paris surgery.
She has specialised in frenectomies on babies and young children. She works on a daily basis in partnership with lactation consultants IBCLC for breastfeeding parents and children to receive the best possible care.
Her in-depth knowledge of tongue- and lip-tie and the many training courses she has dispensed in this field, in France and abroad, makes Dr Agachi the ideal person to discuss the thrust of Joyce Pye Funston’s presentation at the 2019 WBD.
A midwife at the Institut Mutualiste Montsouris in Paris, Béatrice Idiard-Chamois takes consultations in Gynaecology and parenting for couples with handicaps. This specialist consultation reflects her ongoing determination to adapt to the needs and wishes of pregnant and childbearing women while preserving their independence.
Building on her experience in the field with these families, Béatrice sets the benchmark to frame Ibone Olza’s presentation on the impact of birthing conditions on the initiating of breastfeeding in a French perspective at the 2019 WBD.
Nayeli Magraner has worked as a lawyer in Paris since 2009. She is specialised in personal and family law, with a particular sphere of interest: that of foreigners’ rights.
A woman on a mission, she posed for a photographic exhibition to fight breastfeeding prejudice in professional settings, by breastfeeding her baby in her lawyer’s robes, for the 2014 World Breastfeeding Week. In 2013, she published a remarkable report for the French breastfeeding coordination (CoFAM) in which she developed legal provisions and French legislation regarding breastfeeding beyond the return to work. Her expert knowledge makes her one of the best qualified speakers to further the 2019 WBD discussion on Elizabeth Brooks’ presentation on breastfeeding rights.
