Should you decide to breastfeed, it is a skill that is needed to be learned simultaneously by first time mothers and their baby. Easy access to quality guidance and advice is essential during this process.
As a patient of mine, you will be able to access the lactation service run through either Prince of Wales Private Hospital or the Mater Hospital. The lactation service is specifically designed to support you and your baby whilst you are establishing breastfeeding. You can choose to attend structured sessions that run throughout the week, or request a visit from a lactation consultant during your hospital stay. The Prince of Wales Hospital also offers breastfeeding discussion groups which you can attend even before you give birth.
Please note that I also have relationships with lactation consultant who we can organise to visit you in the comfort of your own home after your hospital stay.
