The benefits of breastfeeding for both Mother and Child

At home Midwifery Care

As a registered nurse and midwife specialist with over 35 years experience in the field, Midwife Catherine offers specialised at-home midwifery care for new mothers. Catherine uses an evidence-based approach to midwife care, allowing you to make informed choices for your child with up-to-date information.

Lactation Consultant

There are many benefits to breastfeeding for both mother and child, but it’s not always easy to get started. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and member of Lactation Consultants Australia and New Zealand (LCANZ), Midwife Catherine can provide you with advanced care and guidance to overcome difficulties with breastfeeding.

Post Partam Care

Post Partam Care is extended care for new mothers immediately following the birth. In years past, new mothers would stay in hospital for 10 or more days after child birth, now they are out the next day. Post Partam Care provides support for both mother and child and helps make the transition to childcare easier for both parents.

How I can help

Lactation consultant

Perfect for new mother, including positioning and attachment difficulties, milk supply, suckling, fussy or wakeful babies, common concerns, and breastfeeding at work.

Postpartum care

Post Partam Care provides support for both mother and child and helps make the transition to childcare easier for both parents. 

Extended care for new mothers

Midwife care often leads to a higher chance of natural delivery without caesarian. This means a shorter stay in hospital post delivery, and allows for extended at-home care to be performed by the midwife. 

Breast care

Feeding your child can cause issues with mothers breasts, including soreness, itching and nipple trauma. I can help you minimise these problems and care for your breasts while breastfeeding.
