I am a registered midwife for many years having worked in the UK and New Zealand where I developed a passion for breastfeeding before returning to Ireland in 2005.  This lead me to further develop my skills and qualify as a lactation  consultant (IBCLC) supporting me to offer an evidence based, safe and professional service.

I have been lucky to mother my three girls through breastfeeding and this has further cemented my beliefs and practices.  They, like breastfeeding, can create wonders and challenges. I believe that every mother and baby deserve to breastfeed and be breastfed. More than that, breastfeeding is not only a way to feed your baby, it is an unparalleled parenting tool.


Consultation Costs

I offer one to one consultations in your own home.  The cost of this service is €75/ one hour consultation approximately.  Follow up visits will incur a charge of €50.  I will travel within 25kms of Athlone, any further distance will incur a travel charge.  Payments to be received at the end of each consultation. 

Please contact me by email and/ or by telephone as detailed. Ongoing email and phone consultations may incur a cost. I will endeavour to return your call at my earliest convenience but please appreciate that I have personal and professional commitments.

Lactation consultations are partially reimbursed by Health Insurance companies in Ireland, please refer to individual policy document for details. 

If you are having breastfeeding problems and require an IBCLC but feel you can’t afford my fees, please do get in touch. I will try to help you in anyway I can by linking you with the local breastfeeding support groups, peer supporters or finding a potentially suitable arrangement.
Together with trained peer supporters I also facilitate a drop in breastfeeding support group locally.
