Lactation Consulting

Perhaps adjusting is a little different to what you'd imagined.

Maybe some warm, helpful support is in order? There's no doubt that parentingĀ brings a lifetime of joy but in the days and weeks after birth...it can be a lot!

IĀ offer expert support and guidance as you navigate this time helping you with questions you have around your newborn, helping achieve breastfeeding goals and maintaining your own self care through rest, nourishment and more.

From breastfeeding advice to postpartum care, I'll help you feel confident and assured, answering any questions you have.

With me as your midwife, you can call or text anytime, ensuring prompt attention and peace of mind throughout your journey.
