Online Consults

 

Schedule Appointment

 During the Covid-19 Pandemic I am offering my consults and classes online. To book a consult please click on the link above.

I offer a kind compassionate service which is based around your breastfeeding goals (not mine). At the end of the consult you will get a written plan of what we have changed and my breastfeeding booklet. One consult  is generally enough to sort most problems with follow up by phone/email afterwards.

Tongue Tie Assessment and  Referral/ Help with Breastfeeding: I have extensive professional and personal experience of tongue tie and its impact on breastfeeding. I can assess for all types of tongue tie in babies although this can be limited in online consults  and can send a referral to a medical practitioner for division.

Other reasons might you need a consult?

  • Sometimes just for your own confidence to check all is well.
  • Breastfeeding did not go well on a previous baby.
  • You want to understand your baby and breastfeeding more completely.
  • You have health issues such as diabetes, depression, asthma and are worried about how it might affect breastfeeding.
  • You have inverted nipples, asymmetrical breasts or hypoplasia of the breasts.
  • You have painful sore nipples.
  • You have blocked ducts, mastitis, breast pain while nursing.
  • Your baby has trouble latching and comes off the breast during feeds frequently.
  • You suspect your baby might have a tongue tie.
  • You are concerned you do not have enough milk.
  • You have been told to supplement with formula.
  • There are concerns about your baby’s weight gain (if your baby is not gaining an average 6oz /180 grams per week in the first few months, you may benefit from a consult).
  • You are nursing twins, triplets or more babies.
  • Your baby is born early either preterm or near term ( 35-38 weeks) and you wish to directly breastfeed.
  • You have been told you must wean because of a medication, illness or postnatal depression.
  • You need help picking the breastpump that is right for you and your baby’s needs. You have questions about bottle feeding a breastfed baby and storage of breastmilk.
  • You are going baby to work and not sure how to incorporate pumping and breastfeeding into your daily work routine.
