Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 7.17.46 pmHi I’m Linda Walker from Breast Success. I provide professional and personalised breastfeeding help and support in the comfort of your own home. I am a qualified International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Karitane Mothercraft Nurse and work with mothers and their families in the St George/Sutherland Shire region of Sydney.

As well as being a Private Practice Lactation Consultant, I work in a hospital setting in the local area. I work in a Level 2 Special Care Nursery, on the Maternity Ward and in the Lactation Clinic. In these settings I provide one on one Lactation Consultations with mothers of full term and premature infants, conduct group Breastfeeding and Sleep and Settling classes. I provide individualised breastfeeding plans for mothers and their infants, based on their history and specifically focusing on their personal goals. Ongoing management of breastfeeding issues is very important and as a Lactation Consultant I collaborate with Doctors, Early Childhood Centres and Allied Health Professionals. Working in the hospital setting requires me to be up to date in mandatory skills, record keeping, note care plans and referrals….read more about Linda

¬†” Prior to having my daughter, I always knew that I wanted to breastfeed. I never thought twice about it, but once she was born my daughter wasn’t latching well, despite the absence of tongue and lip tie. Her latching issues was causing me immense physical and emotional pain. As a result of this I began to exclusively pump, which gave my body a much needed rest and time to heal. However, when I felt confident enough to give breastfeeding another go, my daughter became fussy at the breast and refused to latch. This was a distressing situation for me and so I decided to call Linda to help retrain myself and bub breastfeeding. Linda spent the time to truly understand our situation and came up with simple and helpful guidance and tools. Her approach was patient and understanding, and after two session, a lot of practice, perseverance and much encouragement bub and I have become pros at breastfeeding. I have gained the confidence to feed both at home and out in public thanks to the help of Linda. I would highly recommend Linda for any woman and her bub having issues with breastfeeding no matter how complicated it may seem. ” S.

Mission Statement

BREAST SUCCESS can be achieved on many levels!

Breastfeeding knowledge and support is the first step to help making informed decisions about feeding babies.

Breastfeeding your baby is the biological norm, however it is not always easy! Each mother and infant pair are unique and have their own specific circumstances.

By listening to mothers and observing them feeding their infants, individualised support and reassurance can be given to improve breastfeeding outcomes and meet mother’s breastfeeding goals. Recognition that “mothers want to do what’s best for their children and families, within the context of their circumstances”, is important.

Empowering and supporting mothers to make informed decisions is my goal!
