There are other health professionals who can support you with breastfeeding your baby, both in the hospital and at home. These include midwives and health visitors. Whilst they are able to assist you with feeding support you may not receive continuity of carer and this sometimes leads to conflicting or inconsistent advice. Midwives and Health Visitors are often challenged by time constraints and heavy workloads.
As a lactation consultant in private practice I have the time to spend with you, to listen to you and to support you in all aspects of breastfeeding your baby. Whether you need support initiating breastfeeding or problem solving.
If you feel that you need additional support or advice I may be able to help you.
