I am an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) in private practice in Northern Ireland as well as volunteering as a breastfeeding counsellor with my local voluntary organisation.
Welcome to Mammae
Mammæ is a new resource for pregnant and breastfeeding mums, providing evidence based information on breastfeeding, focusing on the first 6 weeks. There are probably hundreds of websites /blogs and apps on the Internet supporting breastfeeding, so what makes this one any different, and why should you follow Mammæ?
My goal at Mammæ is to reach pregnant mums and to provide the information they want during their pregnancy, give information about how birth affects breastfeeding, how to best get started, and to be here as a continuing support for them afterwards.
Reaching pregnant mums with breastfeeding information is really difficult. Help me to get it right. Spread the word about the site to your pregnant friends. Follow the blog and let me know what you wanted to know when you were pregnant or what you had questions about in the early weeks. Tell me what was surprising, what was amazing and what was more challenging for you about life with a newborn. If you are pregnant, please do post on the blog with your questions or get in touch.
Hopefully we can build this into an amazing resource for new and expectant mums, as well as those who have been parenting for a while.
If you have any questions about a consultation or would like to arrange to meet, please get in touch.
