Private Breastfeeding Consultations
To support as many locaI families as possible, I offer a number of different options for accessing breastfeeding support.
Available across the Gold Coast and northern New South Wales
Private breastfeeding consultations in your own home.
At the My Own Midwife GC clinic at 207 Currumburra Road, Ashmore.
One-to-one breastfeeding consultations in a relaxed and welcoming clinic environment.
(Current clients only - by prior arrangement only)
Ideal for situations where a face-to-face appointment is not needed.
Early Parenting Group Sessions
SORRY, CURRENTLY NOT RUNNING
2-hour sessions for small groups of 3-5 mother and baby pairs are jointly run by myself and Dr Alexia Chisholm.
I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and offer private breastfeeding consultations across the Gold Coast city and hinterland and into northern New South Wales. Consultations can be either in your own home or in a clinic setting.
I aim to give parents and parents-to-be accurate, evidence-based information about breastfeeding, together with skilled and nurturing support as you get to know your baby's cues.
Breastfeeding is different for each mum and baby, so together we will work on practical solutions that are tailored to your breastfeeding goals and individual parenting situation.
Home visits : Monday to Saturday (evenings and Sunday by arrangement)
Clinic : Thursday (other days by arrangement)
