About Shona

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.
