Galway Breastfeeding Classes & Support
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 and include lots of practical tips and skills, delivered in an interactive and fun way. Classes are held every month and early booking is advisable.
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 existing 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 which are available at cost price.
