Lactation Consultancy in the Bordeaux region

With a background in early childhood education, I worked in various organisations with children and their families in France and in Australia before becoming a Lactation Consultant.

I discovered this beautiful job when I had my first baby. I contacted a Lactation Consultant I met at the maternity and suddenly I wasn’t alone anymore. Most importantly she brought me solutions to my problems and I could achieve my desired feeding outcome!
Each mother and baby shares a unique relationship and a unique breastfeeding style. But sometimes, breastfeeding doesn’t come naturally, and you start to question yourself about your abilities as a mother to feed your baby.

You are not alone! My main objective as a Lactation Consultant is to provide you with a solution to the challenges you and your baby are facing and to make sure you are confident again about your feeding choices.
I offer, according to your needs:

-       An antenatal preparation session – Getting prepared for the breastfeeding journey before the baby arrives or if the last breastfeeding experience didn’t go to plan.

-       Breastfeeding Consultations (at home with your baby).
Usual duration –  1.5 hours

o   Personalised one-on-one support to achieve your desired feeding outcome
o   Providing a sensible, manageable and realistic feeding plan for the family to work with
o   Consultations include follow up contact either by phone, SMS and or email

-       Workshop about breastfeeding topics: breastfeeding and returning to work, etc.

-       Antenatal preparation session: 30 euros (1 h 30)
-       Breastfeeding Consultation: 50 euros (1h30 consultation + follow up)
-       Workshops: 30 euros

I also work in an association “les Bébés des Capucines where I provide workshops for young children 0-3 and 3-6 yo (story time in English and French, painting, cooking, etc.) and more coming in the next few months.

Thanks and hope to chat soon!
