About me

Your Personal Lactation Consultant

As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and member of Lactation Consultants Australia and New Zealand (LCANZ), Midwife Catherine provides her clients with advanced care and guidance to overcome difficulties with breastfeeding.

 

These services include a range of midwifery and early child care options, however Midwife Catherine specialises as a Lactation Consultation, which focuses on helping new mothers with breastfeeding.

 

What is a lactation consultant?

Lactation Consultants are health professionals who hold an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) qualification. They can work in hospitals and child health services, private practice clinics, or perform at-home care.

Lactation Consultants are not to be confused with Breastfeeding Counsellors. They may offer similar services but counsellors do not have the same level of training or qualifications as a Lactation Consultant, nor are they certified by any governing body.

 

What does a lactation consultant do?

A Lactation Consultant will visit you at home for a one-on-one consultation, focusing on assisting with common breastfeeding problems and providing education and training on the best-practices for feeding your child.

 

Midwife Catherine offers range of lactation consultation packages, which include multiple sessions, follow phone calls, and ongoing health education options.

A lactation consultant can be perfect for new mothers who are facing difficulties with breastfeeding their newborn child. As with all areas of raising a healthy child, there are many common problems with straight forward solutions, and other more complex issues that vary from person to person.

  • Baby Position
  • Attachment Difficulties and Suckling

  • Fussy or Wakeful Babies

HERE TO HELP

What is a Midwife?

A midwife provides assistance, care, and support for pregnant women to help improve the success of child breath. A midwife allows women and families having a baby to be cared for throughout their pregnancy, during labour and birth, as well as postnatally. A midwife works with a medical practitioner to provide your primary 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.
