I am a Melbourne Based Lactation Consultant offering a home-visiting service or private consultation in inner suburban Melbourne. I can provide practical support, education and information for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
There are many ways to breastfeed your baby and it can take practice and support to achieve a comfortable position so that both you and your baby are happy. Many women have breastfeeding problems in the first weeks as a newborn baby needs to feed 8-12 times in 24 hours. This can cause friction, pain and trauma to your nipples if the positioning and latch are sub-optimal. A One-to-One consultation in your own home can ensure you get the right practical information and support you need to put you in control of breastfeeding your baby. Getting professional help early can make breastfeeding much easier.
