Lactation Consult

Lactation Consult Blue Mountains

Do you need a lactation consult in/near the Blue Mountains? For example, are you struggling with cracked nipples, mastitis or issues with positioning and attachment? Similarly, do you need help dealing with oral restrictions, intolerances, settling or sleep? I am a breastfeeding counsellor and have supported hundreds of women on their breastfeeding journeys. Furthermore, I’m training to be an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). My experience totals over 800 hours of breastfeeding support and this is my passion! Therefore, I’d love to help you!

A Lactation Consult can help you establish and maintain breastfeeding

 

Establishing and maintaining breastfeeding isn’t about ‘feeding stations’, pillows and pumps! However, it does have a whole lot to do with the kind of support system you have. Society does not adequately support, normalise and model breastfeeding for us. Consequently, some mums do need additional support.

Remember, breastfeeding is a full time job! Nonetheless, with the right support, you can do it!

 

I offer lactation consults to women in the Blue Mountains and surrounds. Specifically, this includes Lithgow down to Nepean and Hawkesbury! Additionally, if you’re outside area, virtual consults via Skype, Facetime or Zoom can be provided. Do you need help?
