  • When should I see a lactation consultant?
    Any time before or after the birth. However most importantly, if you’re having trouble with any aspect of breastfeeding or feeding your baby in general If you have an antenatal consultation, then it prepares you emotionally and physically. It gives you the opportunity to discuss any anxieties or expectations of breastfeeding. Learn how to attach correctly, the importance of skin to skin, breast assessment for lactation purposes, hand expressing and many more. This allows you to be better equiped to deal with the common issues mother’s can often face before and after the birth of a baby. A lactation consultant can also be consulted if breastfeeding isn’t your chosen method of feeding. She helps you with all things feeding, mother and baby - sleep and settling, bonding, baby’s behaviour. She’s also there to support father/partner too. Feeding your baby is multi faceted and there are many factors that play a role in how successful the feeding will go. It is important to keep an open mind as one piece of advice doesn’t fit all sizes. I look forward to meeting you.
  • What can I expect in my first session with a lactation consultant?
    At your first session, a thorough history taking is essential to ascertain how the lactation consultant can best support you and your baby. Following this, an observation and assessment of feeding is beneficial in giving you the best possible advice, tools and discuss the appropriate management to support you and your baby.
