    1. Breastfeeding Preparation Workshop

    Like driving lessons before you take to the road, this workshop will help you learn all you need to know to get breastfeeding off to a smooth start!

    Offered every month in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Ennis Road and taught by a professional Lactation Consultant with 20 years’ experience supporting breastfeeding mums, this workshop is a relaxed and enjoyable way to learn about:

    • How do I position baby at the breast?
    • How do I know I have enough milk for my baby?
    • What is normal in the early weeks, and what is not?
    • Breastfeeding and life with your new baby
    • Troubleshooting—what should I do if there are problems?

    We suggest booking a class about 6 weeks before your due date. The class costs €90 and receipts are issued, as many private health insurance policies will reimburse part of the cost.

    At the end of the class we have a chance to chat, so you will leave with all your questions answered, reliable information, and confidence in knowing how to breastfeed once the baby arrives!

    If you attend my Breastfeeding Preparation Workshop, I'm delighted to offer an additional €20 discount on the post-natal consultation price!

    2. Breastfeeding Consultation Clinic

    Available in Clarecastle on Tuesdays, this 90-minute appointment gives us plenty of time to chat and look at all aspects of feeding.

    We will discuss how feeding has been going from the start, look at position and latch, making adjustments if necessary, and then make a plan together to help sort out difficulties. The consultation also includes tongue-tie and oral function assessment, with referral if indicated. Baby weighing is also available, if desired.

    It can be so helpful to take this time to talk about feeding and new parenthood, and to gain solid information and a good plan!

    The cost of the clinic visit is €120, which includes a personalised care plan and support via phone and email for 2 weeks. Receipts are provided for your health insurance reimbursement (depending on policy).

    3. In-Home Consultation

    Finally, we also offer a full 90-minute consultation service in your family home. This may be helpful if you have had a Caesarean section, as many parents like the convenience of not having to take a new baby out, or need to arrange for care of older children.

    We shall discuss how feeding has been going from the start, look at position and latch, making adjustments if necessary, and then make a plan together to help sort out difficulties. The consultation also includes tongue-tie and oral function assessment, with referral to relevant providers if indicated. Baby weighing is also available, if desired.

    It can be so helpful to take this time to talk about feeding and new parenthood, and to gain solid information and a good plan!

    The cost of a home visit is €150, which includes a personalised care plan and support via phone and email for 2 weeks. Receipts are provided for your health insurance reimbursement (depending on policy).
