I’m committed to providing personalised, respectful, evidence-based support for mothers, babies and families.

My goal, as a healthcare professional specialising in breastfeeding, is to use my knowledge and skills to help you to meet your breastfeeding goals. To educate, support, and empower families to make their own informed choices, and develop the necessary skills and ability to manage any breastfeeding issues that arise.

I’ve consulted with hundreds of mothers and families since 2007, ranging from straightforward to complex and challenging difficulties, and to my great honour, families that have asked me back to see them with subsequent children.

Breastfeeding was a part of my growing up. Mum breastfed my younger siblings and was active in breastfeeding support as a volunteer of the Nursing Mothers Association Australia (NMAA).

Breastfeeding my first son involved some minor challenges at the start as we both learnt together. But breastfeeding my second son was far more challenging.

Version 2

In addition to encouragement from my husband and family, my baby and I needed the expert support of a Lactation Consultant. She was able to give us the knowledge and skills necessary to cope and the support and encouragement to persevere for the five weeks it took for us to establish breastfeeding.

It was my experience breastfeeding my boys, and the desire to be able to support mothers the way my lactation consultant assisted me, that motivated me to become a counsellor and educator with the Australian Breastfeeding Association and gain my qualification as an IBCLC.

In addition to the satisfaction I gain in my IBCLC work, I continue to find reward in my 30-plus years work as a Registered Nurse, satisfaction in community volunteering, and in our menagerie of needy cocker spaniel, rascally rabbits and quirky chickens that roam what remains of the garden. And of course – my family.
