When breastfeeding is not progressing well, it is important to seek accessible and swift specialist care. An IBCLC lactation consultant is the most specialist caregiver in the field of breastfeeding. However, as a breastfeeding coach and massage therapist, I can usually help with quite some challenges too.

We, therefore, aim to schedule a home visit within 24 hours.
During our 75-minute breastfeeding consultation, I will address any breastfeeding issues you may encounter by understanding the origins of your problems and finding solutions together to solve them. In the second part, I will massage your breast(s). Commonly applied in Asian countries such as Singapore, the Lactation Massage focuses on blockages, engorgement or reduced milk flow.
