SERVICES and COSTS
Whether it’s your first baby and things aren’t going the way you had hoped or your second (third or fourth!) run at breastfeeding and you’re seeking a more positive experience, I am here to help.
The Canberra Lactation Centre provides access to a wealth of breastfeeding experience and knowledge from a highly qualified lactation professional. We aim to identify your specific issues and put a plan in place to address them.
Contact to arrange a home visit.
A first visit includes:
A full history of both mother and baby including birth.
A functional mouth assessment of your baby
A breast assessment
A detailed report and a plan following the session.
This visit covers support for 2 weeks after the first visit by phone, text or short visit. Please set aside about 2 hours for this visit.
A session focusing on how breastfeeding works and the first few hours of birth. This session is ideal for women who may have had previous breastfeeding concerns or are facing a complicated birth or medical issues that may affect breastfeeding. I set aside 1 1/2 hours for this session.
Sessions could include a review of return to work and breastfeeding; to review a previous issue; lactation support following a tongue tie revision or a specific concern. They can be in the form of a phone or face to face consult.
