Professional breastfeeding assistance
Nursing mothers need support at all times of the day and night. That’s why I offer kind, current, evidence-based breastfeeding care Monday-Sunday across all areas of Sydney.
I also assist clients outside Sydney via Skype consultations.
I am professionally qualified to address all breastfeeding concerns including:
- attachment difficulties
- low or over-supply
- blocked ducts
- painful/damaged nipples
Home visits as and when you need them
You can decide when, where and how often you see me – but I recommend a face-to-face consultation in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you and your family.
I work together with you and your partner to create a lactation plan that suits you and works towards your baby’s healthy weight gain.
As a fully insured lactation consultant holding the highest accreditation in breastfeeding care (IBCLC), I take a gentle, empathetic approach to helping women and their babies.
Simply contact your health fund to discuss rebates for lactation consultations.
Antenatal & postnatal care
In a career as childhood and early parenting educator spanning more than 19 years, I have assisted parents in many essential skills including:
- antenatal breastfeeding
- elective caesarean section
- first days with baby
- baby care
As part of my postnatal midwifery care, we can address any worries you may have concerning:
- coming home from hospital
- adjustment to parenthood
- normal newborn behaviour
- sleep & settling
- baby massage
What to expect during your lactation consultation
We will have a relaxed chat about your pregnancy, labour and birth experience. This will include noting any previous lactation experience and/or medical issues.
Make a change to a better routine today
Working together with your family unit, I will listen to your concerns and evaluate:
