In-Home Consultations

During in home consultations we discuss:

  • assessing a breastfeed - this is totally non-judgemental. There is no one best way to breastfeed and it is a two way relationship with your baby. It will also change over time.

  • milk supply education - how it all works

  • ways to boost or manage your supply

  • oral motor and anatomical functional assessment of baby

  • position and latch

  • hormones and let downs

  • medications and what to avoid

  • food and nutritional requirements

  • baby care tips

  • sleep and settling

  • optimising baby's development

  • baby's communication and reading their cues

  • answering your questions

  • establishing, planning and meeting your goals

Partners and support people are encouraged to attend.

 

I don't notice how clean or 'lived in' your house is! I want to see you comfortable in your own space, in your own precious baby bubble!

 

Because I understand baby brain, I don't expect you to remember everything we discuss in person. I will then email you a plan, fact sheets and web links relevant to your specific situation. 

 

I call/email/message to follow up. This can be via phone or Skype if you prefer.

 

I meet regularly with a team of local practitioners to discuss the best strategies to help you and your baby to develop and thrive in all aspects. I work closely with paediatricians, GPs, manual therapists (bodyworkers, chiropractors, osteopaths), midwives and am happy to liaise with any other practitioners you may have on your team to get the best outcomes for your family's wellness.
