Registered Nurse/Midwife & International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
Hi! My name is Mel and I am a registered nurse/midwife and a proud mum to 3 beautiful children.
Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to help mum's with their babies. As I grew up I realised being a midwife was the best way I could do this. I completed my nursing qualification first before becoming a registered midwife over 12 years ago.
As much as I loved welcoming babies into this world, including my own, I realised there was a huge gap in support networks for families postnatally and that I really wanted to make a difference to help others avoid feeling the way I felt, back when I had my first baby.
As a registered midwife and IBCLC, I am passionate about empowering and helping families prepare for their new arrival and provide them with support, once they have welcomed their baby into this world. My special interest is in food intolerances/allergens in infants.
