Co-ordinator World Breastfeeding Trends Initiative, Australia
My interest in infant feeding developed after the birth of my first baby in 2001. I realised that even though I was an RN my knowledge of how breastfeeding worked was very limited. So I developed a strong desire to assist mothers to have access to up to date evidence-based information on infant feeding. I volunteered with the ABA and became a Breastfeeding Counsellor and then worked towards becoming an IBCLC (qualified in 2010). Since then I have worked as a Lactation Consultant in a maternity hospital, in my own Lactation clinic with a GP/IBCLC colleague, and in my own Private Practice.
I am available Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am and 4pm. I can come to you so long as you are within 15km of Ashgrove, otherwise by negotiation.
I am also happy in some instances, to do consultations by Zoom or Skype, this would be ideal for follow up consultations or quick questions, or antenatal consultations when necessary.
As an IBCLC I can provide antenatal education about intiating breastfeeding and the early days/weeks, Post-natal consultations for reassurance, discussion of supply, weight gains etc. I can assist you with positioning and attachment, damaged nipples, mastitis, breast pain. I can support you though illness, medications, and weaning or mixed feeding.
Feel free to give me a call if you aren’t sure if a lactation consultation is what you need, or if you’re not sure of what we do. I would love to chat and answer your questions.
