Let our experienced NDC accredited International Board Certified Lactation Consultants come to you

We understand it can be difficult to leave the house in the early days. If you’re within 20km of East Brisbane, you won’t have to!

Our practitioners travel with all the equipment needed to do a complete and thorough assessment of you and your baby.

A home visit can be beneficial at any point but we find it particularly useful for families navigating the first few weeks with their newborn taking the stress out of travel and keeping appointment times.

Yet to hire more staff – maybe we just say for now “unfortunately not able to offer this service at present, please book a possums online consultation”
