Did you know that most babies will breastfeed within an hour of being born? So the best time to learn about breastfeeding is during pregnancy.
To achieve your breastfeeding goals, good preparation is key. In pregnancy you (usually) have more time and energy to educate yourself than after bub is born.
Our lactation consultants can support you, provide up-to-date and evidence based information, teach you skills, and give you the motivation you need for a positive and successful breastfeeding experience.
They offer one-on-one consultations as well as private education sessions.
Regular Antenatal Consultations include:
- a basic overview of breastfeeding
- a breast inspection
- a breastfeeding plan
- a demonstration of how to express milk (after 36 weeks you can start do this at home)
- answers to all of your questions
If you need help with any aspect of breastfeeding after birth, you already know your Lactation Consultant, and she knows about you and your preferences.
Regular antenatal consultation
$100 for 1 hour
