ADELAIDE BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT

Mother Baby Bonding

The early days and weeks of having a new baby can be a challenging time for lots of different reasons, so having someone come to you in the comfort of your own home and offer professional care and attention is invaluable. You don't need to organise care for other children, wrestle with the car capsule or the pram, or even change out of your pyjamas! I really don't mind if your house is messy, if the dog is present, or the toddler needs lunch - it's important to me that you are comfortable, at ease and in control of your experience. 

Hi, I'm Jen - I've been a Registered Midwife since 2004, an Endorsed Midwife since 2021, and an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) specialising in breastfeeding and parenting support since 2012.
I also teach aspiring Lactation Consultants (IBCLC's) through my work with Australasian Lactation Courses.

As your Lactation Consultant, I provide professional, compassionate and non-judgmental postnatal and breastfeeding assistance to support you and your family in overcoming the particular challenges you face.

 

Visits will be specifically tailored to your individual requirements and situation, and may include:

  • an antenatal visit to discuss previous breastfeeding difficulties and how to prevent them recurring

  • comprehensive health history of parent and baby

  • health checks for parent and baby, including post-surgery care, neonatal screening tests etc

  • support for recovery after vaginal, instrumental or caesarean section births

  • breast and nipple care

  • emotional support and debriefing

  • monitoring baby's weight and feeding

  • breastfeeding, chestfeeding and mixed feeding advice and support

  • checks and advice regarding neonatal jaundice, rashes, 'normal' newborn behaviour

  • diagnosis of any problems with breastfeeding, and referral to allied health professionals if needed

  • help with low supply, breast pumps, engorgement, tandem feeding, weaning etc

  • relactating, or initiating lactation for an adopted baby

  • managing multiple birth babies, or babies with health issues

If your baby is less than 7 weeks old, as an Endorsed Midwife I can also provide you with pregnancy & postnatal specific prescriptions and diagnostics, and your consult will be Medicare rebatable.
