This webinar will provide an introduction to the BAPM Toolkit ‘Optimising Early Maternal Breast Milk for Preterm Infants’. The webinar will outline the Five Perinatal Core Elements to optimise early MBM for preterm babies explained in the toolkit and detail the supporting evidence for the recommendations. We will hear from those that had successes in this area. There will also be a live Q&A at the end focused on supporting those that wish to implement the recommendations in their unit.
