James Akre, BA MPIA
Breastfeeding: One man’s perspective
Switzerland James Akre, BA MPIA

James Akre is a freelance author, reviewer and commentator whose focus is the sociocultural dimension of the universal norm for nurturing and nourishing children, and pathways for making breastfeeding and breast-milk feeding ordinary again everywhere. His international public health and human development career, spanning five decades, includes a combined 31 years with the International Labour Office, UNICEF and the World Health Organization; and seven years working in Turkey, Cameroon and Haiti. He is a member of the editorial board and a reviewer for the International Breastfeeding Journal. He is also a reviewer for the journals Maternal & Child Nutrition and Pediatrics, and for the Danish Council for Independent Research; a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of La Leche League France; and a past member (2004-2010) of the Board of Directors of the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE).

Objective 1: The learner will be able to gain insight, from a male point of view, into the significance of breastfeeding for mothers and children, and thus for society as a whole.
Objective 2: The learner will be able to frame breastfeeding as an act which, although it concerns mothers and children most directly, in fact, involves all of us one way or the other.
Objective 3: The learner will be able to identify the environment to strive for - one where all people, because they are genuinely informed, caring and supportive, not only anticipate that mothers and children will breastfeed; together they also contribute to making it possible for them to do just that.

Switzerland James Akre, BA MPIA
Abstract:With an intermingling of the personal and professional, the presenter will fashion a cohesive narrative by drawing on his memories of childhood, his formative family experiences, his life and work in a variety of cultures on five continents, his career in international public health nutrition, and his passionate commitment to breastfeeding and breast-milk feeding. In the presenter’s vision of ho-hum ordinariness, the best place to be is where all people, regardless of whether they ever become parents, are not only eager for mothers and children to breastfeed; they also make the right moves – defined as the easy and obvious things to do because they are part of ordinary normalized
behaviour – to ensure that everyone is in on the deal.

Beyond “screening”: Fostering safe spaces for asking and responding to disclosures of abuse in the transition to mothering
Canada Jodi Hall, PhD, Professor, Full-Spectrum Doula

Dr. Jodi Hall is a full-time professor in Doula Studies at Fanshawe College and an adjunct professor at Western University. Her research interests include reproductive justice, trauma, social exclusion, sex work, ethics and criminality. Dr. Hall’s unique combination of practical experience gained in the gender based violence community as a frontline worker and her academic research background in trauma has spurred a high demand for her workshops (www.jodihall.ca ) aimed at informing a diverse array of professionals around the complex issue of trauma, and how to recognize and respond accordingly. Through her professional work, Dr. Hall has contributed to numerous research studies and publications on health inequities amongst women in conflict with the law, health promotion, trauma and the transition to parenting, and a housing first approach for women. Currently, Dr. Hall is conducting a community based research study funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) with members of London sex workers’ community, SafeSpace.

Objective 1: The learner will be able to identify strategies to create safe spaces for asking about abuse
Objective 2: The learner will be able to develop an action plan for responding to violence
Objective 3: The learner will be able to locate and define the role of a health care provider in screening and responding to abuse during the transition to mothering

Canada Jodi Hall, PhD, Professor, Full-Spectrum Doula
Abstract:Many health care professionals are reluctant to routinely and universally inquire about abuse during the transition to mothering even though there is widespread recognition that abuse has devastating physical and emotional effects on the lives of women and their children, with particular vulnerabilities during the transition to mothering. This presentation will provide a starting place to explore the nuances of creating safe spaces for women survivors of abuse, and some practical strategies to respond to disclosures.

Changing how we think and talk about breastfeeding
Switzerland James Akre, BA MPIA

James Akre is a freelance author, reviewer and commentator whose focus is the sociocultural dimension of the universal norm for nurturing and nourishing children, and pathways for making breastfeeding and breast-milk feeding ordinary again everywhere. His international public health and human development career, spanning five decades, includes a combined 31 years with the International Labour Office, UNICEF and the World Health Organization; and seven years working in Turkey, Cameroon and Haiti. He is a member of the editorial board and a reviewer for the International Breastfeeding Journal.

Objective 1: The learner will be able to discover unconventional ways of thinking and talking about breastfeeding, including by borrowing from the jargon of marketing.
Objective 2: The learner will be able to grasp the relevance of three take-home messages which fly in the face of conventional wisdom – “breast is (not) best”, infant formula is not second-best, and it is not really women who breastfeed after all.
Objective 3: The learner will be able to appreciate how changing the way we think and talk about breastfeeding can contribute to achieving our common goal – making human milk once more an ordinary part of everyday life.

Switzerland James Akre, BA MPIA
Abstract:In the jargon of marketing, rebranding involves adjusting a product’s image and promotional strategy, the better to penetrate new markets or increase market share in existing ones. We can approach human milk this way, too, in an effort to shore up Mother Nature’s market share in the presence of the synthetic dream merchants, meaning purveyors of breast-milk substitutes which are intended for routine – as opposed to strictly emergency – consumption.

Attie Sandink, RN IBCLC CBE
Letting Baby Lead The Way; From Birth to Breastfeeding
Canada Attie Sandink, RN IBCLC CBE

After starting her career as a Registered Nurse Attie progressed through many areas in healthcare from hospital to community care and back to a combination of all areas of the Maternal and Child specialty care. Early in her career she trained and began teaching prenatal classes. This led to her becoming involved in committee work in local coalitions bringing together local hospitals and communities with the end goal of building bridges of support to young and new families. Identified at the committee level was the need for better breastfeeding education at all levels, not only for clients but also for the professionals working with these clients. Because of that information, in 1992 Attie started one of the first 18 Hour WHO (World Health Organization) Lactation Management workshops in her local area and taught this in two area hospitals and communities. This teaching in turn led her to become a Co-trainer and Facilitator for INFACT Canada and the Quintessence Programs for a brief time. She was also instrumental in re-writing the Mohawk College 90 Hour Breastfeeding course to meet the International standards for course work for others who would like to become IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). As programs changed Attie became the Lactation Director and Educator with CAPPA (Childbirth and Post Partum Professional Association) Canada. When CAPPA International evolved into the company it is today her role changed again and with the support of CAPPA International Attie is now the Canadian Lactation advisor, faculty member, trainer and facilitator. Her role in planning, setting up, teaching and working as an IBCLC, in a number of Breastfeeding Clinics both in the hospital and various communities, as well as working as a Registered Nurse in an active Labour and Delivery Unit, has given Attie greater insight in understanding the whole process of breastfeeding. As an Educator and an active program organizer Attie continues to remain research based as well as remaining firmly entrenched in the normal behavior of the Breastfeeding Dyad.

Objective 1: Do we give the parents, especially the mother, the tools to be self-sufficient? Or do leave them asking if we can come home with them for the next month or so?
Objective 2: Do we really understand the Baby’s Role in breastfeeding and parenting by understanding the interplay of attachment?
Objective 3: Do we assist in this dance of attunement between parent and child or might we cause distress in an already stressful situation?

Canada Attie Sandink, RN IBCLC CBE
Abstract:This presentation will allow listeners to reflect on early research of infant self- attachment and the role this action continues to play in breastfeeding today. We will look at the evidence of how the baby assists the mother/parent to learn about breastfeeding and attachment. By following a baby from his earliest stages of birth to breastfeeding and beyond we can enable the best breastfeeding experience parents can have in spite of the problems they may encounter, whether this be exclusive breastfeeding for six months or partial breastfeeding or even bottle feeding of breastmilk.
