Presenter : Hayley Scott Medical student Topic:  Variability on milk storage advice available on line to expressers

Hayley is a final year medical student at Flinders University.  Prior to this she worked as a Registered Nurse in Neonatal Intensive Care and General Practice.  She has an interest in pursuing a GP pathway with a sub specialty in shared care, enabling her to focus on support and education throughout the antenatal and postnatal period. Hayley’s research is focused on Exclusive Expressers and the information shared around EBM handling and storage guidelines.

Presenter: Leah Strauch Medical Student   Topic :  Role of Social media on Peer Support

Leah is a final year medical student at Flinders University undertaking research in the area of breast milk expression. Leah has a keen interest in women’s health and General Practice, and has focused her research on the ways in which Exclusive Expressers are and are not recognized as a distinct group among dyad types, as well as the ways in which they support each other through social media – finding the ‘tribe’ and shared experience that they are not able to locate in real life.

Presenter: Lucy James Midwife  Topic: Breastfeeding following early discharge

Lucy completed her bachelor of midwifery at Flinders University in 2014 and works in the Midwifery Group Practice at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide. Lucy’s passions are continuity of care, woman centred care, breastfeeding and evidence-based practice.
