What is a lactation consultant?

Lactation Consultants are members of the health care team who have a specialist knowledge of and primary focus on breastfeeding. They are the experts whom mothers and other health professionals turn to when skilled assistance is required.  Lactation consultants are passionate about helping mothers meet their breastfeeding goals and assisting mothers to overcome breastfeeding challenges.

How I support you

As a professional Doula (Birth and Postnatal) and as an International Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) I would like to support you through this journey. From Belly to Breast. As a lactation consultant I offer visits in the comfort of your home. The visit entails a detailed assessment and based on the information you give i will provide you with information and support. The main aim is to help you find a way to an amazing breastfeeding experience. Breastfeeding is definitely the way nature intended us to feed our baby but it is a learned art and sometimes requires couching.

Please include in the message a short description of why you would like the visit as well as the area you live in. You are welcome to phone me but if I am consulting I usually do not answer as I feel it disrupts the appointment.

Support

During pregnancy some moms have concerns about whether they will be able to succeed in breastfeeding. Lactation consultants can sit one on one with the pregnant mommy before baby arrives to cover these topics. As this is a private visit you can address any question or concern you may have and get peace of mind and guidance before baby’s arrival.
