Amanda Glynn IBCLC - Private Lactation Consultant Galway

Private Postnatal Consultation

One to one, postnatal consultations take place in my clinic in Galway city or, if you would prefer, in the comfort of your own home*

Consultations take approximately 1hr 30 mins and include a thorough health history of parent and baby, along with an assessment of feeding, structure and function. The consultation may also involve weighing your baby. 

Together we will devise a fluid care plan based on your breastfeeding goals and particular circumstances. 

Clinic consultations are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays. Home visits are facilitated Monday-Friday.

As much of my day is spent supporting parents and their little babies, it can be difficult to reach me by phone. The quickest way to check my availability and to book an initial, private, 1:1 consultation in my clinic, is to click the 'Book Now' button below and then select 'Postnatal Breastfeeding Consultation' on the booking page**. 

If you would like to enquire about a home visit, please complete the enquiry form here.

*Due to the demand on my services and the constraints of travel time, home visits are currently offered within Galway city and suburbs only. Click here for a map of the locations covered.

**Please note, my online booking system is for mothers who wish to book an initial, 1:1 consultation. Postnatal appointments can only be accepted following the birth of your baby i.e 'just in case' bookings prior to baby's birth cannot be accepted - babies often have their own plans regarding their birthdays!

 Follow-up appointments can be arranged by contacting me directly.

Consultation Fees:

Full payment is due at time of service unless a payment plan has been agreed.

Amanda supported me and baby through our struggles with low milk supply, nipple confusion and mastitis. So many times I was about to give up but every time I received encouragement from Amanda (and not just the, oh carry on, you’ll be fine sort of advice) with practical advice on how to make things easier. I have a toddler also so Amanda set me up with an SNS (a feeding tube that goes from the bottle of expressed milk to the breast and into baby’s mouth) which helped free up time and kept my baby where she belonged - at the breast. My only regret is that I didn’t get in touch with her earlier because I’m sure our journey back to exclusive breastfeeding would have been a lot sooner and I would have saved myself some tears.

We thought the class was amazing! Gerry is almost as excited about helping me to breastfeed as I am about putting all I’ve learned into practice. It’s so reassuring to know that we can contact you if we’ve any questions. Thanks a million Amanda. I’ll be recommending you to all my pregnant friends.

Amanda, just a few lines to let you know how much Lorraine and I appreciated the time you spent with us last week. You left two much more capable and confident parents behind you. Being able to recognise when Joshua is actually drinking milk and knowing what to do when he isn’t, has made a huge difference. He was weighed this morning and gained 10oz! You can tell that Lorraine has been pretty much feeding non-stop but she’s delighted that she can do this for Joshua. Again, thank you so much for all your help.

Thank you so much for seeing us on Monday. I am very grateful for the evidence based and non-judgemental advice and support that you gave during the consultation. I only wish I had known about you when I had my first baby three years ago. I am certain you could have saved our breastfeeding journey from its traumatic, premature end. I know it was an unintended outcome of the consultation, but you actually helped me make peace with a few things from that time. I am very very grateful for that. I will be telling all my pregnant friends about you.

It’s been almost a week since I pumped last! Thank you so much for your help and encouragement. I wouldn’t have kept trying only for you! I’ve been out and about with my baby nearly every day since so I feel SO much better than being stuck inside pumping, feeding and sterilising! It’s literally changed by life. Thank you xx

Words can’t describe how grateful we are for all the care and attention you gave us back in November. You literally saved the day! Our baby girl is now a very healthy and happy 3 month old and still fully breastfed. I’m so happy that I’ve been able to do this for her and you had a massive role in that.
— Aoife, Galway
A fantastic and educational class I would definitely recommend any expectant mum to attend. Amanda was so nice and professional she made you feel you could ask any question and no question was silly. You receive a very informative pack when you leave and Amanda is there if you have any follow up questions. Well worth the money!

Amanda gave me the confidence I needed to try breastfeeding (and succeed!). I have a medical condition (Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis), and had been told by various people that I probably wouldn’t be able to manage to breastfeed, due to exhaustion levels and disability. A midwife had even told me I shouldn’t bother trying. But Amanda went through everything i needed to know while I was pregnant, and gave me the confidence I needed to give it a try. When my baby was born I was thankfully able to breastfeed with absolutely no problems. For a disabled mother, this was actually the easiest part of caring for a new baby, and gave me time to just sit and rest and cuddle with her. I would recommend any pregnant mother to consult Amanda!

I have not forgotten your kindness and all your sage advice, pre and post birth. I am sure that without your excellent advice I would not have managed to successfully breastfeed. Keep up your excellent work!

Amanda provided us with amazing care. She has this amazing gift to be able to advise and guide you with such great kindness. Her experience as an IBCLC and mother was invaluable to our breastfeeding and parenting journey. She supported us through tongue tie, shallow latches causing damage, blebs etc... I can safely say that without her dedication, friendly approach and mostly her knowledge, I wouldn’t be feeding my 9 months old baby right now... I wish I had attended classes before his birth and will definitely consider getting gift vouchers for new mums or mums to be. Amazing support!

We’re two months in and I’m still breastfeeding my little boy! I am so proud of myself. I know I would have been doubting myself at every hurdle, had I not heard the words from your class in my ears. Paul has been a tremendous support and is so glad I persuaded him to come along to the class. Thank you Amanda for all the calls and support. Your advice has been invaluable to us.
