Why might you need to see a Lactation Consultant?

Breastfeeding is a natural and wonderful experience, but sometimes it can take some help and support to establish breastfeeding for a new mom.

I will visit you in your own home, or in a clinic setting if you would prefer, and help you with any breastfeeding issues, such as:

  • Basic breastfeeding education, including sleep patterns
  • Latching difficulties
  • Milk supply issues, failure to gain weight
  • Management of sore nipples
  • Tongue-tie
  • Advice and education re expressing and storage of milk, and use of breast pumps

I also offer antenatal breastfeeding classes.

For more information or to arrange a home visit, please get in touch.
A breastfeeding consultation usually takes 60-90 minutes. Follow up telephone support is offered as part of the home visit.

Some health insurance policies will reimburse towards Lactation Consultant Services.
