POSTNATAL BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT
By experienced Lactation Consultants (IBCLC)
At your consultation, your Lactation Consultant will discuss with you your issues and concerns and develop an individualised plan, tailored to your needs. Following your initial consultation, we offer you phone support for 7 days, to ensure you and your baby receive the care you need. Every breastfeeding experience is different, and as such, personalised care has been proven to create positive outcomes.
Initial issues of concern are commonly, sore nipples and latch issues, weight gain concerns and anything ongoing that can affect your establishment of comfortable and relaxed breastfeeding. At times, regardless of the age of your baby, other areas of concern arise or issues maybe ongoing and therefore need to be addressed, to enable you to continue your positive breastfeeding journey.
Not sure if you need to see a Lactation Consultant? Send us a message or book online your free 10 minute phone consultation, to discuss your concern and see how we can help you!
Medicare rebates available if baby is less than 6 weeks and 6 days at time of appointment.

Situations Where Our Lactation Consultant Can Help
Our lactation consultants provide professional, caring services and can offer support for a wide range of situations.
Your baby isn’t latching: If your baby isn’t latching at your breast correctly or they’re feeding for very long or short periods, you may find that they’re not draining your milk effectively. This type of feeding can lead to engorged or painful breasts, blocked milk ducts, and mastitis. Our lactation consultant has extensive experience with this situation and can offer professional support and breastfeeding techniques to improve your baby’s latch.
You think you have a low milk supply: Your body should gradually increase your milk supply the more you nurse your baby. However, if you have any concerns about your milk supply, our qualified and friendly lactation consultant can assess your baby’s nursing to ensure they are feeding effectively. She can also provide you with valuable strategies to increase your milk supply, such as using a breast pump between feeds.
Your baby isn’t gaining weight adequately: Your midwife or doctor may refer you to a breastfeeding consultant if your baby isn’t gaining weight normally. We can assess your milk supply and feeding technique to determine if there are any underlying breastfeeding issues that we can rectify so your baby can nurse better.
Our lactation consultants have a wealth of knowledge and experience offering mums breastfeeding support with a wide range of issues, including sore nipples, feeding multiples, premature births, and more.
