What can I expect?
My background as a Registered Midwife and Registered Nurse, has led me to become a very holistic lactation practitioner. I have chosen to base my business exclusively on home visits. I believe your home environment is the best place where you and your baby/babies will feel most comfortable for this type of service.
Upon meeting you and your family for the first time, I will require some background about your prior lactation experiences, and the mode of delivery and experiences this current pregnancy. Please have your hospital discharge records with you. The assessment can be quite comprehensive depending on the circumstances surrounding your pregnancy/birth experiences (current or prior). This is all important for me to understand your full story . This information collected remains confidential between you and your health care providers. Once you make your booking, I will forward you a form to fill in all these details to save time upon your first visit. Please have this filled in as much as possible.
The remainder of the appointment and subsequent appointments are flexible and tailored to your needs.
I look forward to helping you become your own lactation expert!
