    Default Anyone recommend a good lactation consultant in Brisbane?

    I'm after a consultant who will cone to my home to specifically help me with attachment issues. I'm struggling with a 2wk old baby girl who still won't attach to my breast. Have tried many things & now just wondering if a few hrs of at home support from a good lc will help.

    I'm located caboolture, Brisbane northside.

    If you have actual good reviews of someone, not just know of someone that would be preferred. Thanks

    I see Sharon Armstrong and she's good. Very practical, friendly. She's at North Lakes so she might visit Caboolture?

    I saw Bridget ingle in aspley with the twins 19 months ago, she was great and only $55 a 1hr visit, I don't have her number but she is internationally credited so is easily found on google

    Ok thanks guys ill check her out. Do you know what her fees are by any chance?

    I should have mentioned that I have been to a lactation clinic at local child health center & been told I'm doing everything right. So what I'm really after some "hands on" advise iykwim.

    If you ask, alot of them will willingly show you, then let you do it then try do it again, I guess it all depends on the LC

    My understanding is that Bridget is no longer seeing people, she's now training other LCs, but I could be wrong. Sharon charges $115 an hour at home, $90 at clinic. I think. She's never touched me, but I'm sure she would if I wanted her to show me something that way.
