Why choose an Online consultation?

Ideal to discuss:

  • Anti-Natal counselling for breastfeeding
  • Personalised Breastfeeding education
  • Educating re harvesting colostrum
  • Postnatal consultation where an in person consultation is not necessary or not available
  • Strategies to return to work while breastfeeding
  • Weaning from breastfeeding
  • Weaning onto Solids
  • Formula feeding issues
  • Guidance & support ; Just to know you are going in the right direction, ask questions, have limited support around (no one you know has breastfed). Building confidence is so important with breastfeeding as it is usually our insecurities that result in weaning prematurely.
