Breastfeeding & Lactation Support

Breastfeeding your new bundle of joy is a great way to ensure you’re giving your child all the nutrients and antibodies they need to start life in the best possible way, but it can sometimes be tricky to start with. At John Flynn Maternity, all of our midwifery team are highly skilled in assisting mums to get the most out of breastfeeding and answering any and every question you may have. Additionally, we have a fantastic team of Lactation Consultants who can give you advice, show you tips and tricks and help ensure you and your baby are settling well into breastfeeding.

Below is a question and answer session with our Nurse Unit Manager of Maternity, Gaylene Hardwick and Lactation Consultant Adrian Wheatley. We cover all manner of breastfeeding related topics such as what to eat while breastfeeding, the best positions for feeding and troubleshooting commons issues new mums find when trying to breastfeed for the first time.

At John Flynn Maternity, we have experienced midwives and a Lactation Consultant available 24 hours a day, even after you have left the hospital – we are only a phone call away!

Both Adrienne and Gaylene are available if you have any further questions – you can post them to our Facebook page or give us a call on (07) 5598 9040.

We look forward to welcoming you to John Flynn Private Hospital Maternity for the birth of your new little one.
