Preparation Workshop

Breastfeeding preparation workshop

Breastfeeding Preparation Workshops

The Breastfeeding preparation workshop is held monthly in the Radisson Blu Hotel on the Ennis Road. Families can learn all they need to know about lactation and breastfeeding

Consultation Clinics

Breastfeeding and Lactation Consultation Clinic

Breastfeeding Consultation Clinic

This is a 90-minute consultation, which allows plenty of time to discuss how breastfeeding has been going and to identify what the main issues are.

Home Consultations

Breastfeeding at home

In-Home Breastfeeding Consultation

This is similar to a clinic consultation but is held in the family's own home. Home visits can be arranged in advance by contacting us by phone or email.

Our Aim

Breastfeeding is natural, but also a skill that takes time and patience to learn. We provide kind, compassionate help and advice for new parents who may have difficulties breastfeeding, or who may need support as they learn the ropes in the early days and weeks.

This can be done either in the home, or at our clinic in Clarecastle.

A Mother’s Experience

Having breastfed my own children, they were my first and best teachers! I am trained to assess baby’s latch and feeding pattern, and to know how to help identify issues that can impact on feeding.

These include: positioning and attachment, identifying physical restrictions that may be affecting latch and causing pain; milk supply issues (both under and oversupply); managing a new baby and a modern lifestyle; returning to work; weaning onto solids or formula; and essentially anything a family may need to find what works best for them.

Get Started with Antenatal Classes

My antenatal classes provide everything parents need to know to get off to a smooth start.

We learn all about what is normal and what is not, how to hold and latch baby on, how to troubleshoot difficulties, and where to seek support—if and when needed.

The greatest joy is nursing one’s own baby. The second greatest is helping another woman to nurse hers.

“I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service and information you provide through the class I attended. I definitely think that the knowledge I had going into this has led to the fantastic position we are in now with A’s feeding. All of my preferences for the birth went out the window so being able to breastfeed successfully a means a huge amount to me."

"We got home yesterday and are enjoying every minute together. Thanks again.”

“I attended Johanna’s workshop today in Limerick and I can’t recommend it enough. It was the most informative four hours of antenatal information that I’ve received. I came away feeling more informed and with an increased confidence to go ahead with breastfeeding.

“I enrolled on this workshop on the recommendation of a friend and I will definitely be recommending it to others.”

“I cannot recommend Johanna highly enough. I was at my wits’ end with a very unsettled baby who was constantly cluster feeding, plus I was marooned at home, unable to drive after a C-Section. Johanna came to my house and spent a lot of time answering my questions and helping me find solutions.

“Things are going so much better since. Also the follow up emails are a god send. Thanks again, Johanna.”
