About Shona


I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and offer private breastfeeding consultations across the Gold Coast city and hinterland and into northern New South Wales. Consultations can be either in your own home or in a clinic setting.

I aim to give parents and parents-to-be accurate, evidence-based information about breastfeeding, together with skilled and nurturing support as you get to know your baby's cues.

Breastfeeding is different for
each mum and baby, so together we will work on practical solutions that are tailored to your individual parenting situation and breastfeeding goals.
 
I have experience with babies of all ages and can help you with breastfeeding problems including:
  • sore/cracked nipples
  • painful breastfeeding
  • difficulty latching on (positioning and attaching)
  • mastitis, blocked ducts or breast pain
  • tongue tie and lip tie assessments
  • low milk supply or oversupply
  • breast refusal or fussiness
  • breastfeeding after breast reduction or augmentation (implants)
  • concerns about baby weight gain
  • sleep issues
  • expressing/pumping and breastfeeding when returning to work
  • weaning
