Breastfeed With Confidence

Be prepared so you can have the Best Start to Breastfeeding!

“Breastfeeding is natural, I will have no problems”
“Why is this so hard?”
“Why do all the other mums manage and I struggle so much with breastfeeding?”
“I’m the only one who can’t breastfeed”
“I thought breast feeding was natural” …..

That’s what I thought too!

Cracked nipples, low supply, blocked ducts, mastitis, low weight gain, tongue tie….

Overwhelmed mums and babies.. I’ve seen it all and experienced much of it myself!

The good news is these challenges can be overcome!

Hi, I’m Eve! I’m an experienced midwife, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and mum to my beautiful boys, Oscar and Sam.

My inspiration to support you comes from my own breastfeeding journey. Who knew
breastfeeding could be so tough?

I believe every mum should have the opportunity to achieve breastfeeding goals and you can have a wonderful experience, no matter how challenging it has been so far.

It just takes the right support….

And I am here to help.

But first….. What stage of your breastfeeding journey are you at?

“I’m pregnant and want to feel prepared for breastfeeding”

“I’m struggling with breastfeeding”

I thought I knew how to breastfeed.

After all, I had been a midwife for over 20 years and have helped support many achieve their breastfeeding goals.

But then I became a mum! Little did I know it’s not really what we know… it’s what our babies can or cannot do that makes breastfeeding work or struggle!

I had the most challenging breastfeeding experience with my first son, with such little support, conflicting advice, negative comments and a baby that didn’t know how to feed.

After 3 months of poor latch, low weight gain, probable reflex and lots of tears from baby and me, he finally “got it”.

This was when my passion grew. And nearly 10 years ago I became an IBCLC to ensure I could be a valuable resource to the Perth community and beyond.

And now I’m helping women like you form realistic, individualised goals and get on the path towards a healthy & happy breastfeeding relationship. You’ll be fully supported, listened to and given evidence based advice – from someone who really understands.

Some paths in life are meant to be – this is mine.

Expressing and Storing Breast Milk

Ante-natal Expressing
