Presentations

Elisabeth Dale, founder of TheBreastLife.com and author of bOObs: A Guide to Your Girls (one of The Library Journal’s 2007 Best Consumer Health Books), is a renown educator and sought after speaker. Elisabeth offers groups her unique and entertaining “hands on” approach to the topic of breasts: one seen more on billboards and magazine covers than intelligently discussed in the media.

Through informative, humorous and uplifting presentations, Elisabeth inspires women to learn more about their bodies and support the changes their breasts go through from puberty to motherhood to menopause. Elisabeth helps women and girls confront their body image issues and concerns by sharing her journey to self-acceptance. In a frank and truthful telling of her personal struggle, Elisabeth reveals her own “mammoir;” a saga of motherhood, a breast lift, divorce, and ultimately coming into her own as a woman who cares for, appreciates, and celebrates her body. She encourages her audiences to explore, embrace, and uncover their breast selves.

Elisabeth can tailor a presentation perfectly suited for your audience, be it teen girls, runners and athletes, nursing mothers, working women, or healthcare professionals.
