Sarah and Sonja are CAPPA Trained Lactation Educators.
Lactation Educators work with families from preconception through the stage of weaning offering evidence based education, encouragement, counselling, an experienced point of view, and fostering confidence.
We refer to healthcare professionals when support requires clinical assessment, need for prescription, or medical diagnosis.
