A Mindful Approach to Low Milk Supply
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.
