Lets face it- trying to retain new information and learn new skills during the newborn period is not easy when you are seriously sleep deprived, have sore breasts, an unsettled baby and feel like you just want to cry.
To assist we offer both clinic appointments and a home-visiting service to women in Newcastle, East Lake Macquarie, Maitland and the Lower Hunter.
Painful nipples, sore breasts/mastitis, concerns about supply and an unsettled baby are all common concerns during the first four weeks of your baby's life. Lets work together and come up with simple time efficient solutions that work for you and your baby. There are no one size fits all solutions. Breastfeeding is natural but so is walking and look how long it took you to master that one!
