I offer Lactation Support in the comfort and privacy of your own home. No referral is needed.
I am based in Neerim South, West Gippsland, however I will travel to your home within the shires of Baw Baw, Cardinia and Latrobe; and further by negotiation. No travel fee is charged for less than 30km from Neerim South (as per Google maps) – please see fees page for more information.
The initial home visit includes taking a detailed breastfeeding history, birth and postnatal history and any relevant medical history for Mum or bub; observation and assessment of a full feed; examination and assessment of baby’s mouth and suck.
The Consultation fee includes a written breastfeeding management plan, individualised to suit your needs and lifestyle. Also included in the fee is a follow up phone call. Subsequent visits can be arranged if required.

This session may also include a written Breastfeeding plan for you to take to hospital with you when you give birth.
