I am a Registered Midwife and certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and I have always been passionate about supporting women in breastfeeding. I offer a one-to-one Antenatal Breastfeeding Preparation Class, which will help you to prepare to breastfeed, and will also assist you in avoiding some of the common barriers to breastfeeding you may encounter in the first days after your baby’s birth. This also includes a support visit after the baby’s birth, at a time of your choosing, and a free Haakaa breast pump which will come in very useful.
After your baby is born, if you are having problems with breastfeeding, or need more support, you can contact me, and I can either see you in my clinic in Midleton or come to your house to assist you. The appointment lasts about 1.5- 2 hours, as I will ask you about the birth, and how feeding has been going, watch a full feed, talk about any problems you are having, and come up with a plan together. I also offer support by text for 2 weeks after the first appointment.
