Cork City Breastfeeding Drop-In Clinic

I am the proud operator of the City Lactation Breastfeeding Consultation Clinic in Ballyvolane, Cork City. My clinic is dedicated to providing both urgent and non-urgent breastfeeding support in a caring and compassionate manner. If you require assistance with breastfeeding, I am here for you.

You can find my breastfeeding clinic open every Thursday from 9:30am to 2pm at the Blackshields Therapy Clinic, just a short 5-minute drive from Blackpool Shopping Centre. Whether you prefer to schedule an appointment or drop in, you will be warmly welcomed. I understand the urgency that comes with breastfeeding issues, and I encourage you to seek the support you need.

I will always prioritize seeing you as swiftly as possible, ensuring your concerns are addressed promptly. During your clinic appointment, which typically lasts approximately 60 to 90 minutes, I will take the time to thoroughly review your breastfeeding history, assess your infant’s oral health, and evaluate your breastfeeding techniques. Together, we will create a personalized feeding plan designed specifically for you. Additionally, I will provide ongoing support through follow-up phone or email consultations for a duration of two weeks.

The clinic price for a session lasting 1.5 hours is €150, and it’s important to note that this cost is often reimbursable through private insurance. I strive to make my services accessible to all families in need.

Here are some of the areas in which I can provide assistance:

  1. Latch and positioning: I will guide you in achieving a comfortable and effective latch, ensuring optimal feeding for both you and your baby.
  2. Sore nipples and issues with flat or inverted nipples: I understand the discomfort associated with these challenges, and I will work with you to address them.
  3. Supply issues: If you are experiencing difficulties with milk supply, I can offer guidance and strategies to help you increase and maintain a healthy milk production.
  4. Blocked ducts and mastitis: I provide support in relieving these conditions and preventing further complications.
  5. Pregnancy and breastfeeding: I offer guidance for expectant mothers who wish to prepare for successful breastfeeding before their baby’s arrival.
  6. Unhappy or fussy baby: If your baby is experiencing feeding difficulties or fussiness, I will explore potential causes and provide solutions.
  7. Hand expressing and pumping (manual and electric): I can educate you on effective techniques for expressing milk by hand or using breast pumps.
  8. Antenatal expression of colostrum: For mothers who plan to express and store colostrum during pregnancy, I can provide guidance and support.
  9. Inducing lactation: If you are adopting a baby or have a partner who would like to breastfeed, I can assist with inducing lactation.
  10. Chestfeeding: I support and provide guidance to individuals who prefer to use their chest for feeding their baby.
  11. Feeding beyond infancy: I offer assistance and advice for families who choose to continue breastfeeding as their child grows.
  12. Working and breastfeeding: If you are returning to work while continuing to breastfeed, I can help you navigate this transition successfully.
  13. Breastfeeding and Perimenopause consultation. If you are an older first time mother or an extended breastfeeding mother and experiencing symptoms that are impacting on your daily life with your baby symptoms like dry eyes , hair loss ,excessive sweating and anxiety, I’m here to help. 

These examples showcase the wide range of support I provide, but they are really just the tip of the iceberg. My goal is to ensure that you feel cared for, supported, and empowered throughout your breastfeeding journey. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to serving you and your family at the City Lactation Breastfeeding Consultation Clinic in Ballyvolane, Cork City.
