Amanda Glynn IBCLC-RLC
lactation consultant Galway
As a Lactation Consultant, I have the privilege of meeting families at a time of immense hope & excitement. As your lactation consultant, my role is to offer evidence-based breastfeeding information while also identifying and supporting your family’s unique circumstances and needs. Together, we share the common goal of ensuring that breastfeeding works in a way that is right for you and your baby.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Taking a breastfeeding class before your baby arrives is the ideal time to learn about breastfeeding & to gain the confidence needed to make happy breastfeeding memories. Classes cover all the basics, include lots of practical tips and skills & is delivered in an interactive & fun way.
How breastfeeding goes in the early days and weeks can greatly influence your ability and desire to continue. If things aren't where you'd like them to be, a home visit or clinic lactation consultation can be of immense benefit. Research has shown that mothers who have access to the support of a Registered Lactation Consultant find breastfeeding easier and continue for longer.
Breast Pump loan
As an additional service, I am delighted to offer a Rental/ Multi-User Grade (often termed 'Hospital Grade'), double electric breast pump for loan.
This service is provided free of charge to current clients, following a consultation to determine suitability, need and availability. Multi-user pumps are closed systems which allow the pump to be shared safely between mothers.
Each mother will purchase her own collection kit.
