Practice Nurse & Lactation Consultant
‘Supporting Mums, Dads & their baby to breastfeed successfully’
A Lactation Consultation involves meeting with or chatting to a new mum and her baby and sometimes, its not always a first time mum. Second and third and subsequent mums can have a previously good breastfeeding experience, with their first babies and now, this time around, may need support. They are sometimes mums who have had tough breastfeeding journeys and this time around with their experience, reach out for support sooner, to avoid further problems.
I always say if breastfeeding is painful, reach out for support. Cuidiu, La Leche League and Friends of Breastfeeding have excellent Breastfeeding support networks and are a wealth of wisdom. Trust your gut, if it doesn’t feel right, ask someone. There are alot of supportive Public Health Nurses, GP’s, Practice Nurses and Domino midwives who can guide you or lead you in the right direction.

I recorded this after Night 2 for Keela and myself while in CUMH. I recorded it for Facebook Live.
It explains what to expect and my experience.
It can be a hard night and most healthy babies will experience this. It's good to have lined up support for this night whether you are at home or in hospital.
Hope you find it helpful. xx
