Allow at least two hours for this initial consultation. Once you have made your booking you will be sent an intake and consent form to fill in your details enabling us to optimise our time together.
Consultations take place in the privacy and comfort of your own home. I do request that if you have any pets that may be bothered by my presence or will be overly keen to join in and help that they be kept either outside or safely in another room.
You can expect to be supported to establish lactation, explore feeding practices and work to overcome any difficulties you may be experiencing.
Each consultation is guided by what you need. You might have already had your baby and require help to establish or optimise your breastfeeding. You may be experiencing some major difficulties or you may just need some reassurance. You might have had difficulty breastfeeding your first infant and are wanting to arm yourself with knowledge and support to successfully feed your next baby. You might have been feeding well but have begun experiencing new challenges. You might have discontinued breastfeeding and are wanting to look into re-lactation.
