I had my second child at KEMH earlier this year, after having many unresolved pain issues with my first child while breastfeeding I was nervous about how I could feed my second child. I quickly gave up the first time even after seeing a private hospital lactation consultant (LCs).
I had my appointment at the breastfeeding centre a couple of weeks after my second birth as again the pain was unbearable. Debra was amazing and knew straight away that I had a bacterial infection. I went back to my GP and got the required antibiotics and within ten days I was pain-free. A few months on and we have been exclusively breastfeeding and plan to continue for as long as I can. I believe that the service that this centre provides is invaluable and I'm so grateful to Deb and the team.
I did see the LCs in a group consult in hospital (KEMH) but I feel it would have been fantastic to see the LCs one-on-one to get diagnosed sooner.
