Hello and welcome.
My name is Tamika Newman and I am a Registered Nurse/Registered Midwife and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
For over ten years I worked in a large tertiary hospital where the majority of my time was spent assisting women establish breastfeeding. I started my private practice on the Gold Coast in January 2015 and have enjoyed caring for mother/baby dyads ever since.
Since I gained the qualification of International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2010, I have been able to apply my knowledge gained from my midwifery work and focus and expand on the finer details of human -lactation.
Throughout my years of practice, I have stayed current with latest evidence based practices by attended many conferences and spending countless hours studying all things related to infant feeding, growth, sleep and development. I am also very interested in oral anomalies such as tongue/lip ties and enjoy working with families to correct and establish effective feeding strategies.
As a mother of two beautiful children I understand just how important breastfeeding support is to establishing and maintaining a good breastfeeding relationship. I am extremely passionate about assisting mothers during their transition to motherhood and particularly enjoy working with mothers to help meet their own personal goals during their unique breastfeeding journey.
