Amanda Glynn IBCLC - Private Lactation Consultant Galway

Private Postnatal Consultations

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 - please click here for a map of the locations covered. 

Consultations take approximately 1hr - 90mins and include a thorough history of you and your baby, along with an assessment of feeding, structure and function. Consultations may also involve weighing your baby.

Booking a breastfeeding consultation:

While I am honoured to work as a full time Lactation Consultant, my other work commitments for both The National Tongue Tie Centre and the HSE, mean that private consultations in Galway are generally limited to Mondays only. Occasionally, consultations may be offered on other days.

The quickest way to check my availability and to book a breastfeeding consultation is to check my automated booking page. Click the 'Book Now' button below and then select 'Lactation Consultations' on the booking page. Choose the service you require and select a time slot. 

Once a booking has been made, an invitation to complete the Client Intake Form will be sent. Completing the form ahead of appointments enables us to direct the consultation time towards addressing your specific needs - rather than wasting too much time on paperwork!

Where no time slots appear on the booking calendar, this signifies that appointments are full or that there are more than 4+ days before my next available appointment (not that the booking system has frozen or is broken!). Appointments are published online every Thursday for the following Monday. Slots may open over the weekend so it’s work checking Thursday through to Sunday.

Please note, I do not operate a waiting/cancellation list because timely support is very important when there are breastfeeding challenges. If no appointments are available and you require immediate support, please seek help from another Lactation Consultant and from the wonderful breastfeeding support groups that are available throughout Galway.

**Please note, my online booking system is for mothers who wish to book a first time, 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 as babies often have their own plans regarding their birthdays!

 Follow-up appointments: These can be arranged by contacting me directly. Please refer to your Care Plan for specific details.

Consultation Fees:

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