Our initial 90-minute consultation will focus first on understanding you and your baby’s medical history, feeding patterns, growth, output (wet/dirty nappies) and behaviour, as well as your breast health (including examination) and history. I will observe you breastfeeding your baby and provide guidance to optimise position and attachment, for comfort and to help your baby remove milk most efficiently, without pain. I will provide recommendations based on my assessment and explain the best breastfeeding management for your unique situation. This will address strategies to promote healing of sore and tender nipples or investigation of underlying infection, which may require medical follow-up. Together we will arrive at a management plan that meets your unique feeding needs. I provide a brief follow-up phone call within days of the assessment to check on you and your little one. Additional 30-60 minute appointments will be arranged depending on your needs.
With support, you will have the confidence to feed your little one. Small problems dealt with quickly can be resolved with the right care. To make a booking, please click the button below.
