SMS support subscriptions
Buy by the month or for 3 month/6 month or 12 month periods
My mums and families love the SMS support I provide to them that follows all my lactation consultations. This subscription gives you the opportunity to extend this valuable service. You get personalised VIP messaging support to ask all your breastfeeding, feeding and baby related questions that pop up along the way. There is a minefield of conflicting feeding & baby advice out there! You get access to my extensive breastfeeding expertise, baby knowledge and advice which is underpinned by over 3 decades of paediatric and neonatal nursing experience and training. Consistent and trusted education prevents early cessation of breastfeeding and the worry and stress that comes with receiving inappropriate advice and information. The continuation of my support helps to keep you motivated and growing in confidence as your baby and breastfeeding/feeding journey changes. You can still have me in your corner to help you navigate the care of your baby as they grow.
$50 (30 mins) $100 (1 hour)
Phone consultations are appropriate when wanting to ask questions and no physical assessment is required of the mother and baby. If a physical assessment is required to provide accurate information and a high standard of care, then a home consultation will be recommended upon booking.

Antenatal breastfeeding consultations are highly valuable. They tend not to be high on an expecting parents agenda during preparations for their babies birth, which is a shame . After a baby is born, a mums or parents world becomes all about breastfeeding/feeding and settling their new baby!
Having some breastfeeding knowledge, learning about the skill of hand expression and having the opportunity to ask questions before the birth of your baby, give’s you a head start and builds confidence for what’s to come . Developing your own relationship with a personal breastfeeding expert prior to the birth of your baby gives you the peace of mind that you do have extra help and support at your finger tips, if you need it. knowledge is empowering and having supports in place is reassuring.
