Selwyn & Christchurch

Welcome

Please have a look around and get in touch if I can help in any way.

Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) appointments

Home visits are available 7 days a week* from 10am to 7pm in the Selwyn and Christchurch areas. Please see Services or Bookings for further information.

Antenatal Courses – facilitated by a Diploma Qualified Childbirth Educator

With Rolleston less than a 10-minute ride on the motorway from Marshs Road, and 12 minutes from Curletts Road onramp, join us for 6 nights of informative and at times humourous education, on all aspects of labour & birth, pain relief options, breastfeeding and Baby Wrangling 101! Certain courses fill up quite quickly based on due dates! You can book here.

Antenatal Breastfeeding Education Classes are taught on the fourth night of every antenatal course. All are welcome, especially if your breastfeeding goals for a previous child were not met – maybe this could make a difference this time round. Please see Bookings for further information.

Free Breastfeeding Support

To receive breastfeeding support and meet other parents in the community, please check out this organisation. There are drop-in groups somewhere throughout Christchurch and surrounds every weekday. This help is all FREE and is provided by trained volunteer Mother4Mother Peer Supporters like myself. You can also find other breastfeeding support at Canbreastfeed.

**NEW** Health Professionals & Midwives **NEW**

I can now offer Midwifery Council approved breastfeeding education with allocated hours towards Continuing Education and Profesional Activities available for Midwives. All other Health Professionals (medical students, Childbirth Educators, GP’s etc) may also benefit from this education if supporting breastfeeding families in any way. For more information and bookings, please check here. 

I also support a variety of students and their study requirements for attending antenatal education classes.  If I can assist you, please email me to introduce yourselves. 

My Facebook page will be updated weekly as part of my New Years Resolution to stop being a ‘Boomer’ as my teenage children so eloquently put it, so keep an eye out for all sorts of useful information over there! I have also made it to Instagram, where I am trying my hardest…
