Leadership Skills in Lactation: Make extraordinary things happen

This is a free presentation to honor all the amazing IBCLCs and Breastfeeding Support Workers around the world.
Live Presentation on March 7, 2018


Breastfeeding challenges go beyond latching and positioning. To effectively support breastfeeding/chestfeeding families, lactation advocates need to also support the community. Breastfeeding advocacy is about building systems and consistently leading cultural changes to more deeply reinforce human feeding as the norm. When lactation leaders are able to align values and beliefs with actions and strategies to promote breastfeeding as part of whole community, change can happen from the inside out through public health strategy.

Many of us come to work in breastfeeding envisioning a world where mothers and babies can breastfeed without barriers; however, we quickly learn that breastfeeding challenges go beyond latching and positioning.

To effectively support a breastfeeding/chestfeeding family, we have to support the parents, the extended family, the primary care provider, the workplace culture, the childcare, and the community; in summary, supporting one dyad can be an intervention to the whole social system. Indeed, breastfeeding advocacy is about building systems and consistently leading cultural changes to more deeply reinforce human feeding as the norm.

Kouzes and Posner (2012) state: “if you want to have a significant impact on people, on organizations, and oncommunities, you’d be wise to invest in learning the behaviors that enable you to become the very best leader you can.” With that in mind, lactation consultants and lactation advocates would benefit by learning leadership behaviors and skills that will support their efforts towards cultural change, inspire shared visions, challenge processes, becoming strategic advisors, and leading from the inside out.

Lactation leaders would benefit by being able to align values and beliefs with actions and strategies to promote breastfeeding as part of whole community development and as a public health strategy. In that way, lactation has a presence in early childhood initiatives, maternal and infant health, mental health programs, and any health, social, educational intervention. Want to normalize lactation? Join this interactive session and become the leader who can make extraordinary lactation things happen in your community.

This hour will be about honoring midwifery within the history of how birth changed through standard obstetrical practices. Acknowledging and reframing what normal is through the lens of instinctual a. We will look at the embryological blueprint of birth (mammalian birth) as a template for normal and how one can support normal/instinctual in all birthing environments.

Beginning from the position that “knowing normal” is baseline, critical and foundational to midwifery care. It is imperative to also know what “not normal” or pathology is in order to provide safe, life saving care when needed.

We will investigate how fear often feeds unnecessary interventions regardless of where birth occurs. Techniques will be given for how to work with and regulate the fear one might experience.
