Lactation consultants

If you or your baby are having trouble breastfeeding, your doctor, practice nurse, Well Child provider, or midwife can arrange for you to see a certified lactation consultant. Appointments are at a mutually agreed venue, or at clinics (in Barrington, Linwood, Hornby, Rangiora, or Ashburton).

You may also want to pay to see a private lactation consultant.
