Lactation Consultant

breastfeeding

As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I have undertaken additional training to support families with breastfeeding.

I can help with both basic and complex breastfeeding challenges.

As an IBCLC I am regulated by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) and work within a code of professional conduct and subject to disciplinary procedure. To maintain this accreditation I am required to recertify every 5 years.

Parents are more likely to stop breastfeeding in the first month when they experience problems. Working with a lactation consultant as early as possible can help resolve issues such as sore nipples, inadequate milk supply (real or perceived), and difficulties with breastfeeding.

Never accept that pain is a normal part of breastfeeding and that “your nipples will toughen up”, this is a misconception and is more likely to lead to breastfeeding ending long before intended.
