The Infant Feeding Co-ordinator for community is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). She works as part of the health visiting teams in community and works alongside a community dietitian and speech and language therapist to resolve more complex feeding issues.

The Home Start Breastfeeding Peer Supporters work in hospital and community and there are also volunteer breastfeeding peer supporters who are trained by the Breastfeeding Network and provide breastfeeding promotion, advice and support.

Anyone can self-refer by attending one of the breastfeeding drop-ins or lactation clinics. You can also contact us by telephone and email. 

Before your visit

Please ensure you bring you child health record (red book) along to the consultation.

During your visit

It will be necessary to observe you feeding your baby to make a full assessment. A plan of care will be devised together and you and you will have time to ask questions and discuss your options. The red book will be used to document the plan as required. 

After your visit

You may be asked to return for review, or contacted at home or by telephone. If you are referred to another department or hospital you will be provided with information and contact details as appropriate.
