Our Infant Feeding and Support Centre offers women with babies up to the age of 12 weeks assistance and guidance from our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in a small group setting.
On arrival we will welcome you and settle you in for the day in a relaxed women’s only space. We ask that if possible you don’t feed your baby prior to arriving at the clinic so that soon after arrival we can watch you feed your baby. Observing these feeds will provide opportunities to discuss your feeding concerns, goals and plans.
There will also be an opportunity to watch educational videos and chat with other Mum’s in a relaxed atmosphere.
The clinic operates Tuesdays in our Maternity Education room from 8.30am to 1.30pm.
What to bring:
On the day please bring your baby to the hospital in a pram, baby change of clothes, nappies, nappy wipes etc. Please also bring your Maternal and Child Health Nursing Book (Green Book). If you are using a breast pump, bottles, teats, formula etc, please bring them with you also.
