What can I do for you?

Many women find that when it comes to breastfeeding it doesn’t necessarily come “instinctively”.  During pregnancy so much focus and preparation is usually directed towards the actual labour/birth and sometimes the post natal period, however lots of women are a little shocked to find breastfeeding doesn’t always just “work”.

As a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant I have undertaken many years of breastfeeding specific study on top of my nursing/midwifery degrees to learn all about human lactation and the human infant and then sit and pass an international exam.  I am very committed to working with my clients and reaching their individual goals when it comes to feeding their infants.

Some of the things I can help with include:

  • Antenatal management plans (This is particularly helpful for women who are expecting twins or more, have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes, are having a scheduled caesarean or have experienced problems previously.)
  • Correct attachment/positioning techniques.  Some times the simplest changes in positioning can be life changing in regards to comfort and continuing your breastfeeding relationship
  • Mastitis
  • Damaged/Cracked Nipples
  • Painful attachment
  • Low milk production
  • Overactive milk production/Forceful let down
  • Reflux/unsettled babies/colic
  • Tongue/lip tie diagnosis and management
  • Low weight gain
  • Insufficient glandular tissue
  • Returning to work/expressing plans

I am available for both long and short consults at the My Own Midwife GC – Ashmore clinic and can discuss and help solve many issues.
