Welcome to The Lactation Network Website
As Lactation Consultants and Midwives, we understand that for many women, the breastfeeding journey is not always easy.
That’s where we can help.
The Lactation Network provides consistent, thoughtful, contemporary breastfeeding advice for you. We network with other health professionals involved in your care, ensuring we are all committed to working with you to achieve the best outcome for you and your precious baby.
Our services include:
– Antenatal breastfeeding education
– Antenatal & Postnatal breastfeeding consultations
– Professional development education for health care workers
We offer you support, treatment and management for a range of breastfeeding problems including:
- Positioning & Attachment issues
- Sore/damaged nipples
- Delayed lactation/low supply
- Blocked ducts/mastitis
- Raynauds syndrome of the nipple
- Suck issues
- Breast refusal
- previous breast surgery
- re-lactation advice
No referral is necessary for appointments, and consults are not dependant on place of delivery. Any mum, from any location can access our support.
All consultants working within our practice hold a current, internationally recognised, lactation consultant endorsement (IBCLC) and are notated as authorised midwives by the Australian Health Practice Regularity Agent (AHPRA).
As authorised midwives, we are able to provide Medicare rebates from the antenatal period right through to the end of the sixth week post delivery.
After this, private health funds may offer some rebate depending on fund and level of cover.
We are members of: Lactation Consultants of Australia & New Zealand (LCANZ)
