Introducing – Rowena Gray LC.
Here is a little about Rowena….
“Hi there. My name is Rowena Gray and I am delighted to join the fabulous MAMA team as their Lactation Consultant. I have been nursing since 1997 where a ‘short stint’ in paediatric nursing lasted 8 years. I have been a midwife since 2002 and qualified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2010. In between periods of maternity leave I have worked in a busy Melbourne maternity unit and Lactation Day Stay Clinic.
I am ‘Mum’ to three little ladies who bring me so much joy and entertainment and who have taught me things about parenting that no-one can ever teach you! Becoming a mum has certainly changed my perspective on pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding – it’s nothing short of miraculous and wonderful. Having breastfed all 3 of my babies and experienced all the emotional and hormonal ups and downs that come with it I offer mums a sympathetic ear, assistance without interfering with your way of doing things and help with setting realistic goals and expectations. I am passionate about providing helpful, relevant and accurate information at a time when conflicting advice seems standard.
There is never a wrong time to seek breastfeeding advice and support. I welcome enquiries at any stage of your pregnancy and during your breastfeeding journey.
I am excited to be starting up a breastfeeding support service at MAMA and I look forward to supporting you and your new family.”
Rowena will be offering day stays at MAMA Kensington, 1 on 1 consultations if needed and phone consults where available
