Home-Based Post-Natal Breastfeeding Support and Consultation

Why do I need to see an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)?

Breastfeeding is the most precious gift you can give your baby. No woman is born knowing how to breastfeed. It is also not a reflex that you can develop. Breastfeeding is a learned skill.

While many mothers and babies breastfeed without difficulty, many require help, especially in the early weeks. It is important to have a good start as improper latch, misconceptions or incorrect routine may cause insufficient supply, baby failing to thrive, pain and even becoming fearful to latch. 

An IBCLC supports mothers in the following ways:

In the early days
  • You will learn how to get a deep latch with step-by-step guidance. 
  • Managing pain and engorged breast.
  • Observing what is a good latch.
  • How to tell if baby has enough.
  • Hand expressing and breast massage techniques to improve on milk removal.
  • Latching with inverted/ short nipples without use of nipple shields.
  • Helping you into a comfortable breastfeeding position.
In the later days
  • Preventing and managing common issues like blocked ducts, mastitis, milk blister, pain etc
  • Increasing and maintaining supply
  • Handling milk and storage guidelines
  • Effective pumping techniques 
  • Strategies for breastfeeding after returning to work

Before you raise the white flag, speak to a lactation consultant on how you can improve on breastfeeding and gain confidence. Call or sms to 81575780 for an appointment.
