Having successfully (depending on your definition…) breastfed both my babies, whilst working away from the home, pumping in my breaks, and commuting up to 2 hours per day I am no stranger to the myriad of problems and challenges that can occur with babies and infant feeding difficulties, be it breast or bottle. From recurrent mastitis to white spot, reflux and colic, plagiocephaly and sleep apnoea – you name it, my kids threw it all at me (literally)! As so many sleep-deprived Mums do I tried to figure out what to do to help my babies and I feed well and sleep well. I saw GP’s, Child Health Nurses, Allied and Alternative Health Practitioners, Lactation Consultants, multiple Specialists – they each had a part to play in helping us along our journey and for that, I am very grateful.
As a result, I have spent many years since obtaining my original qualification as an Osteopath studying. From completing my post-graduate studies in infants and neonates to become one of the first Advanced Paediatric Osteopath's in Australia (for more info on what this means click here), to becoming an internationally board-certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). I have also undergone further training in cranio-sacral therapy, tongue tie assessment and treatment (through the Tongue-Tie Institute) and am a certified Myobrace Educator.
It is with this unique background of personal experience and professional expertise that I assist the families within my care. So if you would like some help navigating this life-changing season then please get in touch with me to see how I can assist you and your family today.
