Breastfeeding | The Possums Clinic

Breastfeeding

Some families do find breastfeeding easy and don't ever feel they require the assistance of a lactation consultant. For many more families though, breastfeeding is full of unexpected surprises. These families find they need some advice and assistance throughout their breastfeeding journey.  Our health professionals at the Possums Clinic are able to offer this support from even before your baby is born, to help with those first feeds, engorgement, issues with supply, mastitis awareness, prevention and treatment, "latch" (we prefer to call it fit and hold), painful feeds, damaged nipples, short feeds, long feeds, fussy feeds, as well as looking at ways to ''feed on the go". We can perform Oromotor assessments and look at ways to find the perfect 'fit' for you and your baby. We would love to offer a second opinion if your baby has been diagnosed with an oral tie, such as tongue tie or lip tie. We can assist you with issues when returning to work and how to manage supply, and feeds when you are away from your baby. We provide guidance on expressing/pumping, storage and feeding your baby this expressed milk. Getting feeds working for you and your baby is so important in preventing cry fuss behaviours - we can help!

In the Clinic

Our health professionals specialising in Breastfeeding
Our programs and workshops about Breastfeeding

Sonja and Renee run two hour group sessions for mothers and babies every Friday - and there is no out-of-pocket expense if you and baby are registered with Medicare.

There's a lot that can be done to help make life with your newborn as enjoyable as possible, to get breastfeeding on track, and to prevent unsettled infant behaviour - having a plan before birth is the key! Put together a practical plan of action in our two hour workshops with our Possums RN/Midwife-Lactation consultants.

Gestalt breastfeeding is the name of a new way of empowering women fit together with their babies for enjoyable, effective breastfeeding.
