Our Lactation Educators provide prompt, individualized breastfeeding support. We focus on practical solutions to lactation challenges.
With the support of their midwife, doctor, maternity nurses and public health nurses, most childbearing parents learn to feed their babies quite easily in the first few days after birth because the hormones their bodies are producing make them very ready to learn. Challenges can arise though, and many people benefit from a little extra help and support.
At The Mothering Touch Centre, our trained Lactation Educators provide prompt individualized practical help. Most of our consultations take place at the Mothering Touch Centre, but we can see you at home in an emergency. Just call and ask.
- Initial Consult - 1 hour: $70 at the Mothering Touch Centre
- Follow-up Appointment - 45 minutes: $50
- After your first visit, phone consultations are free.
Consultation Cancellation Policy: Our on-line booking system requires 48-hours notice for cancellation. If you need to cancel or re-schedule with less than 48-hours notice, please phone us. We will be happy to help.
