Breastfeeding eductation and preparation. Ideal for the first time mother and also beneficial for those who have experienced breastfeeding problems in the past. These are one on one consultations with practical demonstration for optimising positioning of the baby.
Please set aside at least one and a half hours or more for an initial consultation. A relaxed atmosphere and plenty of time is imperative for a thorough observation and the chance to master effective breastfeeding skills.
The time you spend breastfeeding your baby deserves to be quality time; unhurried and enjoyable.
Consultations are available during normal office hours only: 8:30am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday.
Home visits in some circumstances may be made to the mother's home by arrangement.
There is no need for a referral from your medical practitioner. Many clients are recommended by family members, friends, midwives, community health nurses, general practitioners, obstetricians, paediatricians, physiotherapists, dietitians, naturopaths and ABA counsellors.
