NOW CLAIMABLE WITH BUPA*

A Lactation Consultation will give you comprehensive, accurate information you need, to ensure you and baby have a more enjoyable breastfeeding experience.

What to expect during a Consult:

✓  How breastfeeding works
✓  What you can expect during breastfeeding
✓  How to avoid common breastfeeding problems (low supply, attachment problems)

✓  Non-judgmental, supportive advice, tailored to your family’s needs

During your breastfeeding consult, Sharon encourages Mums to recline and spend time allowing baby to relax on her chest before the feed begins. This is often different to the way many parents are shown to feed in hospital, but it gives Mum and Dad the opportunity to see how their baby uses the neonatal reflexes to move themselves into position to feed.

Consultations with Sharon can be arranged in the comfort of your own home or at our Embrace Life Centre in North Lakes.

Embrace Life also hire Medela Symphony Breast Pumps and stock Medela accessories.
