Supporting your breastfeeding experience
Jackie Wheeler, IBCLC
I am a private Lactation Consultant, operating out of Palmerston North, but covering the Manawatu and beyond.
My passion is to empower each mum that I help with the skills to breastfeed their baby, and ensure they feel confident in their abilities to nurture their child.
I believe that mothers know their babies best, and with the right support and encouragement that they are able to continue their breastfeeding journey.
I have a special interest in tongue and lip tie, and work alongside a GP in Palmerston North who clips anterior tongue ties, posterior tongue ties and lip ties (no age restriction).
How can I help?
There are many issues that a new mother can face with breastfeeding and sometimes its just a little change that makes a big difference. Issues such as:
- Low Weight Gain
- Tongue Tie
- Lip Tie
- Sore Nipples
- Transitioning Off Nipple Shields
- Engorged Breasts
All these things and more can cause pain, stress and effect your breastfeeding experience.
There are a lot of options with dealing with these issues. I use my vast experience and education to get to the real problem that is causing so many issues.
Often, a simple change can make a huge difference.
"I honestly cannot express how thankful we are to Jackie for not only figuring out what was wrong but also for her support. I think if it hadn't been for her I honestly might have lost the plot by now.
So again I just want to say thank you Jackie, you have helped more than we can say :)"
"I wanted to thank you for all your help with Libby and I.
Those first three weeks were hard however having you only a phone call away made it a whole lot easier!
Thank you for your help and support along the way."
"Thank you so much for all your help with our breastfeeding. It has been so wonderful having your help and support. Your advice and assistance has been fantastic and really helpful."
