    Default Lactation consultant for Brisbane southwest (hospital and home visits).

    Hi,

    I never established breastfeeding with my first child, and am now pregnant with second and already trying to plan ahead. I am in the public system again, and found the lac consultant they had on staff last time completely dismissed me, so I am hoping hiring a private consultant may help this time around.

    Can anyone recommend a consultant that visits you in hospital and at home? I'm based in Brisbane Southwest, will be birthing at Mater.

    Look up Bridget Ingle - have not seen her personally but have heard her name heaps and she is trained in ties which a lot of ibclc's aren't. Good luck. Good on you for planning ahead!

    I had Julie Bullard visit me at home (not sure if she does hospital visits, but I would think probably). She is based at Coorparoo.
    She was amazing.
    Have a look at this lactation consultant finder website http://www.lcanz.org/find-a-lactation-consultant/

    Thanks for the recommendations, ladies! I'll give these women a ring a bit closer to the due date
