Prenatal Breastfeeding Education
Prenatal breastfeeding education and preparation workshops will be offered individually to couples or as a group event. A 2-3 hour session will cover the importance of breastfeeding, and the initial hour following birth. The 'how' of breastfeeding and a touch of science and anatomy will help to deepen your understanding. Information of the variations of breastfeeding 'positions' will be discussed and how to reduce complications, encouraging a positive and empowered breastfeeding experience.
These visits are offered in the comfort of your own home, with flexible times available, to accommodate both parents busy schedules, or at the Paterson Clinic.
Postnatal Lactation Consultant
Postnatal Lactation support appointments involve a full examination of your breastfeeding experience and any complications. Identifying your individual needs with your baby's wellbeing is crucial in establishing a management plan to overcome complications. Providing you with evidence based information, kind support and encouragement we will build your confidence in your own ability to breastfeed your baby, strengthening your bond together.
Visits are provided in our Paterson clinic, with home visits out of hours provided in special circumstances.

WHERE IS THE CLINIC?!
Where?? ..... Paterson NSW (scroll down to see the map below!) This is about 20mins north of Maitland. A very scenic drive with some quality country landscapes to help calm your busy mind!
There is a lovely park with toilets and a playground, just 1 min drive away (yes you are welcome to bring any young children with you) by the river if you wanted to rest with bub before or after your consult or feed before you get back in the car!
Come and relax on the purple lounge, let me pour you a cuppa while I assess, troubleshoot, encourage & support your breastfeeding experience!
All travel fees based on distance have been removed due to the change in clinic space at Paterson NSW. Full details on cost of consults are above. If you have any questions please enquire - happy to answer your enquiries.
