HOME VISITS

Personalised consultations are offered at a time that suits you in the comfort of your own home. You will have the opportunity, and I have the time, to discuss your breastfeeding concerns.

During Pregnancy
Preparation for the arrival of your baby will help you feel more confident and empowered with your breastfeeding. An example of some of the conversations I have had with ladies in the antenatal period include;

The uniqueness of breastmilk
How breastmilk is made
Normal feeding patterns
Realistic expectations for the first few weeks
Good positioning and attachment techniques
How to prevent problems
Experiences and feelings about a previous breastfeeding problem




With Your Baby
As you and your baby get to know each other, and recover from the delivery, a timely postnatal consultation will help maintain your confidence and satisfaction with your breastfeeding. My personalised visit to you will give us the opportunity to discuss and help manage your breastfeeding challenges. These may include:

Frequent breastfeeding
Unsettled baby
Sore nipples
Painful breasts
Weight concerns
Milk supply issues
Breast refusal
Breastfeeding after an assisted delivery
Breastfeeding following breast surgery
Specific breastfeeding challenges for your baby, for example, preterm delivery, tongue-tie, cleft lip / palate
Maternal (and paternal) exhaustion
Relactation
Breastfeeding on return to work
Breastfeeding in public
Developmental baby massage techniques
Baby-led introduction of solid foods




Small Group Sessions
If you prefer to learn and share ideas with others, maybe a group setting is better for you. Whether an antenatal or postnatal group is preferred, I can facilitate a breastfeeding session in your home amongst your friends. As well as benefiting from the social event, you will be developing mechanisms for ongoing breastfeeding and parenting support.

A three week developmental baby massage course is also now available.
