A Mindful Approach to Low Milk Supply
United Kingdom Anna Le Grange, Bsc, RNc, IBCLC

Anna Le Grange is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Registered Pediatric Nurse, Mindfulness teacher and Author. She has worked with new families for over 20 years in a variety of clinical roles. Anna brings her passion for psychology, neuroscience and mindfulness into her lactation support work and facilitates other professionals to incorporate emotional well-being tools into their own lactation practice.

Mother to 3 children, Anna breastfed her 3rd child following breast reduction surgery and experienced first-hand, the emotional challenges that so often relate to infant feeding complexities. She used her personal experiences alongside mindfulness and lactation knowledge, to create a toolbox of techniques for breastfeeding families, which she includes in her courses and book, The Mindful Breastfeeding Book. Anna believes whole-heartedly in prioritising calm and connection within our breastfeeding support practices, both for our clients and ourselves.

Anna is currently studying for a MSc in Positive Psychology at Buckingham New University and has spoken at various events including the ILactation conference and Womanfest.

Objective 1: Following this session, participants will describe the link between stress, the nervous system and lactation.

Objective 2: Following this session, participants will be able to discuss how brain/body connection is relevant to milk-supply, mother-baby bonding and emotional wellbeing.

Objective 3: Following this session, participants will be able to list 3 mindfulness-based interventions suitable for using with new parents.

United Kingdom Anna Le Grange, Bsc, RNc, IBCLC

In this presentation Anna Le Grange shares with us the links between stress and lactation and how mindfulness and relaxation techniques can help. As well as having psychological benefits for both parent and baby, relaxation and mindfulness tools can positively impact the let-down-reflex and milk supply. The early days and weeks after a baby is born, can be a time of stress and worry for many parents, if low milk supply is also a concern, these feelings may be exacerbated. Anna presents mindfulness-based support for new parents as a holistic, evidence-based and nurturing way to work with families whilst also helping them increase their supply through practical breastfeeding support measures.

Objective 1: List the benefits and barriers of at-breast supplementation.

Objective 2: Describe when it is appropriate and inappropriate to be suggesting at-breast supplementation.

Objective 3: Discuss how to use the variety of at-breast supplementation tools.

Switzerland Johanna Sargeant, BEd, BA, IBCLC

Using an at-breast supplementer is often thought to be annoying, complicated and unsustainable -- but it doesn't have to be! While many lactation consultants are aware of the benefits of supplementing directly at the breast, many admit to feeling overwhelmed, and few actually use it with their clients. With this presentation, you will learn the specific benefits and barriers to this form of supplementation, view demonstrations of a variety of these devices, and learn some tips and tricks to make this at-breast supplementation feasible and sustainable for families. We all need to feel comfortable recommending and teaching the use of these tools, enabling us to foster the best overall health for the families we support.

Using Evidence to Develop Clinical Lactation Skills

Tom Johnston is unique as a midwife and lactation consultant and the father of eight breastfed children. Recently retired after 27 years in the US Army, he is now an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Methodist University where he teaches, among other things, Maternal-Child Nursing and Nutrition. You may have heard him at a number of conferences at the national level, to include the Association of Woman’s Health and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), the International Lactation Consultant’s Association (ILCA), or perhaps at dozens of other conferences across the country. In his written work he routinely addresses fatherhood and the role of the father in the breastfeeding relationship and has authored a chapter on the role of the father in breastfeeding for “Breastfeeding in Combat Boots: A survival guide to breastfeeding in the military”.

Objective 1: List basic assessment skills in lactation.

Objective 2: Discuss the evidence in support of common breastfeeding skills.

Objective 3: Identify counseling skills required for the breastfeeding family


The field of Human Lactation is a new profession. Much of what we use comes from apprenticeship programs and hard learned lessons from a mother’s own personal experience. The lactation profession needs to investigate several of their practices and policies to discover what is evidence based and what is anecdotal evidence. This presentation explores the practices commonly employed in breastfeeding (growth monitoring, infant positioning, the use of assisted feeding devices, and counseling skills) to determine which are evidence based and which will require further study if they are to be used in clinical practice.

Objective 1: List 3 significant factors that impart the need for priority evaluation/assessment.

Objective 2: Use critical thinking skills to triage the Che’s/breastfeeding family’s needs.

Objective 3: List additional key health care providers to collaborate with and assist in managing the case.

U.S.A. Annette Leary, BSN, RN, IBCLC

Lactation support may be time-limited when caring for multiple families with varying degrees of complexity and needs. Prioritizing between parents and within the individual cases, employing critical thinking skills, and identifying the chest/breastfeeding family’s needs is essential to efficient workflow. Competing priorities can be stressful and draining. Mindfulness empowers those providing care the clarity to prioritize needs and increase satisfaction for both family and lactation support team.

The presentation will consist of actual lactation scenarios varying in complexity and diverse work environments. Participants will interact via the chat box to triage cases, rank interventions and create a collaborative discipline list. We will end with a brief mindful activity.
