Breastfeeding Support Service

Ensuring you have the best breastfeeding experience possible

At Jessie McPherson Private, we support mothers and babies through their breastfeeding journey. Our Breastfeeding Support Service provides care and support to make sure you have the best breastfeeding experience possible.

Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant offers individual breastfeeding support and advice for mothers.

The Breastfeeding Support Service offers breastfeeding support to Jessie McPherson Private patients. This includes current and former patients, up to six weeks post-natal. We also support mothers whose babies are in our Special Care Nursery.

 

 

Our breastfeeding support includes:

  • Help with common breastfeeding issues
  • Help developing a feeding plan
  • Support expressing and storing breastmilk
  • Assessing breast milk supply
  • Information on breast pump hire and support

We can also refer you to community services for ongoing support of you and your baby.

Accessing Outpatient Appointments

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 our outpatient appointments for discharged patients are currently available over the phone and in some instances video conferencing. Phone support is available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 8am to 4pm. If you need support out of hours please leave or send a message and our lactation consultant will be in touch as soon as possible. Call or SMS/text 0447 314 740 for breastfeeding support.
