Vision of Empowered Lactation with Emma 

Empowered Lactation with Emma has been birthed out of love and a sincere care for women during what is often a painful, tired and stressful experience.

I truly believe that a prevention is better than a cure. Growing in education and support before baby arrives, is such a positive step towards breastfeeding. By building on your own knowledge and learning the 'how' and 'why' of breastfeeding, you can feel empowered and trust the partnership between you and your baby, just as you did when growing your baby during pregnancy.

When we develop realistic expectations based on accurate information and the reassurance of 'normal' (realising our own individuality's), we can reduce the risk of common complications often experienced and grow healthy baby's and mums with a holistic approach.

 

Ultimately this strengthens your bond with your baby, and EMPOWERS you to have confidence in your breastfeeding journey.  

 

I am an IBCLC who passionately has a desire to support women in their breastfeeding journey. 

With a background in nursing, midwifery and child and family health nursing, I am devoted to helping women and their  partners during this often fragile transition time of welcoming a baby to their family. 

As I grew up the eldest of 5 children, it was during my teenage years that I began to nurture the lives of babies and toddlers as I took on the role as second Mum to my sisters and brothers. I always had a passion to 'help' people and quickly fell in love with midwifery. During my almost 10 years of working as a midwife I dreamed of being a Lactation Consultant. Breastfeeding is an area that has such a pivotal role to play in the wellbeing of both baby and mother, and yet I found it was so 'unsupported'. And so began my journey to fulfil my dream! To support, educate and EMPOWER women with their breastfeeding experience. 

Aside from my professional roles, I'm also a wife to my handsome husband and Mum to my two young children who are super busy!

I love being outside in the fresh air, discovering nature and being active. I value health and truly believe it should be a holistic approach,  reducing toxins in the home, mindfulness and clean eating.
