Services

An early consultation with your lactation consultant helps connect you with the simple knowledge that babies know how to breastfeed, how you will recognise their behaviour and how to respond.

antenatal session understand how baby feeds

Before baby arrives

You and your partner will receive a personalised antenatal session to address your individual needs, questions and concerns.

We will build your confidence in feeding your baby, before baby arrives.

Once baby arrives, you need a reliable support network and a clear understanding for how babies feed and the practical skills to help you breastfeed.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Recognise normal newborn behaviour
  • Take early steps to get breastfeeding off to a great start
  • Understand how your baby can attach and feed comfortably
  • Recognise when your baby is feeding well
  • Involve your partner to help you breastfeed
  • Know how to avoid and overcome challenges

You will also receive reference material to use for when baby arrives.

Making contact with your lactation consultant is ideal around 30 weeks. However, it is never too late to involve a lactation consultant.

Duration is 1 - 1 ½ hours
Fee includes a follow-up correspondence by phone/text or email.

After baby arrives

I consult in the comfort of your own home or in my home office at a time suitable to you and your baby’s needs.

It can be stressful with a newborn and difficult to gain the right information about breastfeeding.

A nurturing support network that you can rely on, particularly if you are having challenges, will calm you and your newborn.

Consultations can be personalised to:

  • Address specific breastfeeding concerns and challenges you may have
  • Reassure you everything is going well and evaluate how your baby is feeding
  • Answer general questions you may have about breastfeeding your baby

 You will also receive reference material to use after the consultation.

Duration is 1 ½ - 2 hours
Fee includes a follow-up correspondence by phone/text or email.

Even if you feel you are doing okay, things can change. A lactation consultant gives you the knowledge to identify and avoid potential challenges. Your practical skills help intervene early should challenges arise.
