breastfeeding support with shakti births
We know what it feels like to be handed your newborn and expected to know how to breastfeed. Yes, it’s a natural skill, but it’s not like breathing – it’s more like learning to walk. It takes patience, practice, and a good amount of determination and support.
Tamryn is a breastfeeding mother herself with over 3 years’ experience breastfeeding her daughter. She is trained to provide breastfeeding support and information within the scope of a doula, and can refer to certified lactation consultants or other relevant professionals as and when needed.
We know what is normal and what is not – kind of like your own live encyclopaedia of all things breastfeeding. When you don’t know who to contact, you can contact us. You are assured of non-judgmental support and evidence-based information.
Think of us as your experienced “breast friend” (breastie, if you will).
Whether you find yourself at home with a newborn and you’re not sure which position to feed in, or 4 months into your breastfeeding journey and need advice on pumping and returning to work, we are available to advise and support you in reaching your individual breastfeeding goals.
