I can't say enough about Rebecca; her knowledge on breastfeeding (& troubleshooting) and tongue ties etc. Definitely my 'go-to' IBCLC
Corryn & Ethan
Just wanted to thank you for your support and the work that you do with mothers - it is invaluable. Cadence is such an efficient feeder now! She's very interested in her tongue and is licking her gums and her top lip. She is also laughing! All the time now. I'm not sure if this is a coincidence or whether she was unable to laugh previously. Without you, I don't think we would have managed to find an avenue to get this sorted - we were turned away so many times. Just want to thank you again for believing in mothers intuition and supporting us through this process.

Rebecca is amazing. She has a lovely supportive manner and is a veritable well of important information. I felt comfortable to ask any question without fear of judgement and she helped us to make our choices work for us.
Melinda & Bliss
Rebecca assisted us with a referral for our babies ult and tt. Rebecca is friendly, welcoming and generous with her time. I'm looking forward to meeting with her again after sons ties have been released. If your looking for someone who is passionate and professional about their work you can't go past Rebecca.
Alyson & Eli
Rebecca is wonderful! Kind, professional and informative. She helped assess my 5 week old for ULT and TT and has referred me to a number of trusted professionals to aid in fixing these issues. I saw her 3 years ago as well when she helped with thrush and latching issues with my son. I highly recommend Rebecca ! And thank you for everything, I dont know how my breastfeeding journey's would have gone without you

After breast feeding for only 8 days since my son was born my nipples were shredded. My right nip was worse which looked like it had been cut with a knife where it attaches to the areola.
I spoke to a friend who recommended Rebecca. I put up with the pain for a few more days only feeding from my left but after a while that side became hacked as well. I was at the end of my rope, totally stressed & upset as I didn't know how to feed my son without opting to convert to formula (I've got nothing against formula fed babes but I figure you can beat nature right?!)
I contacted Rebecca who organised a home visit and I pumped & bottle fed to rest my traumatised nips until our appointment which was a day later.
Rebecca was my saving grace. Professional, informative & reassuring. She identified that my son had had lip & tongue tie and answered all my questions about the condition, procedure & recovery.
Rebecca also gave us advice about breast pumping, feeding, soothing my traumatised nipples and using/wearing baby slings I had been given so I could get by whilst my hubby & I made a decision about how we wanted to treat it.
I highly recommend her services- thanks once again Rebecca x
Amanda & Zachary
Thank you Rebecca for all the wonderful advice and support! We love our new Kari me baby carrier/ wrap!! We highly recommend you guys to anyone with young babies!!

After waiting three days for labour to begin after my waters broke reluctantly had to be induced. My Doula Rebecca was wonderful. She was my voice when I had none and my stability in seemingly out of control world. When baby emerged he had low blood sugar and temperature and rather than send him off to the nicu Rebecca helped me feed him and get him warm.
During the pregnancy Rebecca continued to check in with me, see how I'm doing and what I might need. she went over my birth plan and even entertained my five year old!
After the event I had placenta capsules and tincture help me mend, placenta art as a keepsake and even some homemade healing balm. Thank you so much Rebecca for all your support.
Melanie & Sage
I am so incredibly thankful for Rebecca. She was quick to make an appointment to see me as soon as possible and within the first 5mins she diagnosed my 10 month old son with having a lip tie and tongue tie and narrow upper palate, which affects breastfeeding, drinking, eating, all his excessive wind issues and sleeping! Also, why my milk supply kept dropping.
I had been to to a paediatrician when he was 2 weeks old, then a paediatric GP and 2 other GPs, none picked up on it. In fact, they all made me feel like I was paranoid. It was such a relief to finally know there was a reason for 10 months of stress and frustration!
Not only is Rebecca a wealth of knowledge, which she so freely shares, her experience as a mother herself shows in her very understanding and caring nature. She really took the time to hear me and answered every possible question I could ask, like I was a close friend. She is very generous with her time and left me with lots of information on paper. Worth every penny! I have to say I have never met a more helpful health professional. She allows herself to be readily available and left her email address to answer any more questions and offer advice or help as needed.
After my consultation I feel so much calmer, listened to, answered, and even.. happy! After such a long time! I HIGHLY recommend Rebecca, especially if your instincts are telling you something is not quite right and no one else has found a solution. In fact, my next baby will be seeing Rebecca regardless!
Thank you SO much!
Cheryl & Mikaiah
Rebecca was wonderful with my daughter & I. She diagnosed her with a lip & tongue tie within minutes of our consult, after she had been previously checked by others & not picked up. At 10 months of age it's great to finally understand why we had issues and why she's struggling with solids and now we have a solution in sight.
Kylie & Sienna
I went to see Rebecca who was fantastic. She was helpful thorough and very
understanding. She confirmed my sons ult and ptt and provided me with all the
information and options i needed.
Rebecca is an amazing, caring woman who saved my breastfeeding relationship with my bub twice! She will go over & above for her clients & shows so much compassion towards them, as well as demonstrating her vast knowledge about breastfeeding.
Dee & Ethan
Had a review with Rebecca for my 9 week old daughter. She was amazing, so friendly and informative. She also assessed my to other children. Can't thank you enough for your help. Highly recommend her xx
Amanda & Zachary
Rebecca is amazing. Caring, Considerate, Passionate & Professional. We felt so comfortable from the second we walked in. We had all our questions answered. And I have a baby carrier now too!! Thank You Rebecca
Having my first cup of "Booby Tea" after a stressful week! Its such a delightful tea to drink! Im thoroughly enjoying it in the silence of 3 little boys in bed :) Hoping I notice an improve in my supply. Thanks Reb. You are amazing x
Kimberley & Ryan
What an amazing person Rebecca is. Not only does she offer great advice but her support and guidance was so highly valued. We would be lost without you. Thank you again.
Megan & Mackenzie
here are no words that can describe my appreciation for Rebecca. I had had issues from day one with breastfeeding baby #3. Although everyone else told me it was just a phase, mothers intuition told me otherwise. I was having so many problems feeding my son. I had persevered as long as I possibly could. I was crying all the time but I refused to give up. Because of this, I was branded selfish. No one seemed to understand my instinct and desire to breastfeed my own child. It got to the point where I began to resent my beautiful little boy. I called a few "hotlines" and was even told it was time to give up breastfeeding and start giving him bottles!! I finally sought help from Rebecca. She literally dried my tears and listened to everything I had to say and I felt like a weight was lifted instantly off my shoulders because she understood me! FINALLY!! The support I had been looking for and needed so desperately. Rebecca diagnosed a lip tie and tongue tie and we started the process to get it lasered. She gave me a referral to see a specialist and was at the end of the phone whenever I needed her. Now 2 weeks since the procedure, my now 19 week old baby boy is feeding better then ever. He is so happy and so am I smile emoticon Thank you once again for helping us be the best we can be together. Breastfeeding is such an important, beautiful bonding experience that is the right for any new mother. Im forever grateful that Rebecca was able to help us continue on our breastfeeding journey.
Kimberly & Ryan
I'm very happy with the service I received from Rebecca, she has a world of knowledge. Helping me sort out my breastfeeding troubles coursed by tongue and lip ties.
I will recommend her to anyone in need of support
Amanda & Luke
Rebecca was brilliant in helping diagnose my son with ulp and ptt! point us in the right direction to solve the issues. lovely person
Thank you so much Rebecca! I'm so glad i found you! You've made the process of TT and ULT with my son and daughter so much more comfortable than i thought it would be. I'd definitely recommend Rebecca to anyone having issues with feeding or TT/ULT
hanks to this page, mine and my baby's days of horrendous colic and painful feeding were numbered! Thank you Rebecca
Jess & Ethan
After a week of extremely painful breastfeeding I contacted Rebecca. She came out that night! Immediately she picked up on what the hospital did not even check for even though I kept telling them I am in excruciating pain when my son latched on. He had a tongue tie which we had "cut" yesterday. The relief was immediate and I cannot thank Rebecca enough for saving my breastfeeding as I was just about to give up as well as a nervous wreck. She made me feel comfortable, she was extremely supportive and most of all understanding. Please, please do not hesitate to contact her if you have any feeding problems because she is an angel and will do anything to help and support you.
Radka & Adam
Highly recommend for placenta encapsulation & lactation services. Made my days as a new mummy 1000% better than what they otherwise could have been. Experienced knowledgeable & caring will definitely be back for baby #2 !!
Had my second visit with Rebecca tonight. My daughter had a PTT and ULT Rebecca picked up on, which was making feeding extremely painful. She came out today on short notice and helped me with attachment post revision and reassured me I was doing well. An absolute life saver! I have no idea what I would have done without her. She was caring and informative. Both times she brought print outs to help me understand what was going on. Thanks Rebecca
Rebecca was a great help to us, giving us a large amount of informative advice. Very helpful smile emoticon thank you!
Ashleigh & Harlow
Rebecca has been fantastic in helping assess our little ones ULT. She has been so supportive, friendly and professional. She definitely knows what she is talking about and left me with lots of information. I would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone
Hayley & Justice
Amazing reliable service, wonderful products that can truly change your postpartum experience
Would have given up breastfeeding were it not for rebecca. Recommend to every mum and mum to be!
Rebecca came to help me with latching issues that I had with my 6 week old baby Jack. I immediately felt at ease with Rebecca, she made me feel comfortable and at ease talking through the issues I was having. After a couple of feeds whilst she watched and aided, I was able to correct the issue :) Rebecca also showed me how to hand express if needed and recommended some really great products to help heal some sore blisters - which I really appreciated. I was able to continue nursing using this product even though I was pretty sore! I would recommend Rebecca, she is thorough, and a wealth of knowledge and someone that makes you feel like there are no dumb questions! This was important to me being a first time mum :)
Thanks again Rebecca,
Katherine & Jack
Thank you so much for helping me with my breastfeeding challenges.
After picking up some bad habits quite early, you were able to give me the confidence to feed Harvey wherever we may be, without any soreness. Now I'm so much more comfortable with positioning which has really helped with my back pain too.
Thanks again Rebecca, we really appreciate your help.
Dear Rebecca, thank you so much for taking the time to help me with my new baby, I felt I was totally unprepared for breastfeeding, and your calm, honest approach made me feel so much more confident, in my abilities. I am pleased to report that all is going really well, and Jaxon is such a chubba, thanks to all the breastmilk he is receiving.

Dear Rebecca, thank you for being our Doula, for the birth of our second baby, it was so much easier with your support, and Geoff & I cant thank you enough. Having your physical and emotional support during my pregnancy and labour make things so much more relaxed and calm for which I am truly grateful. I recommend all pregnant women hire a Doula for their impending births.
Love Renee & Geoff
Dear Rebecca, I wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thanks. Breastfeeding is going great guns, and I feel so much more confident, my baby is growing in leaps and bounds, and he has just started to smile at me. I am finding the new positions you showed me very helpful, and much more comfortable all round. Thanks again.
Lilly, Simon & Anna
Wow, is all I can say, thank you so much for your beautiful package that was prepared for me recently following my daughters birth. I am certainly feeling so much better than I did with my previous child, and I feel I owe it all to taking my placenta capsules. I am so glad that I chose to encapsulate this time round, and will certainly be doing it again with my next baby.
Thanks again Rebecca, I look forward working with you again for my next birth.
Much Love Christine & Max xxx
Dear Rebecca, thank you for encapsulating my baby's placenta, I am so glad that I choose this option. I have just had my morning dose of the capsules, and am so grateful of having them. Thank you once again, I love the beautiful package that you provided for us. Much appreciated.
With Love Annie & Ben
Dear Rebecca, thank you for being our Doula during the birth of our first baby, what a wonderful experience. I felt surrounded by love and when our baby girl entered the world it was a moment I will never forget. I am also so happy that you suggested encapsulating the placenta which has really helped me in my postnatal period. Thank you also for helping with the breastfeeding, as I am sure that without your continued support we may not have gotten to where we are now. Thanks again. I cant recommend you enough. Thanks so much again from the bottom of my heart.
Emma, Steve & Anna
Rebecca, just dropping you a line to let you know wonderful I feel. My baby is now 8 weeks old. Capsules are going well. I take usually 2 a day. Generally forget to take more then that I recovered so well and quickly. While my post birth bleeding wasnt any shorter (5 weeks to go completely - last 2 weeks was spotting). I felt like my recovery was much quicker, this time around. I couldnt believe how good I felt even 2 weeks after I gave birth! I put that down to the capsules and also having a much nicer delivery. The who process from introductions to using the product has been so smooth and easy. I am so
glad that I was encouraged to have my placenta encapsulated. The benefits have been well worth it! Thank you.
Rebecca, I just wanted to thank you for all your help, from almost giving up breastfeeding at a few weeks old to successful breastfeeding all the way up to my little ones first birthday, recently.. so happy that I made it to a year :-) it also showed me how breast milk has so many vitamins and nutrients, cos as soon as i stopped breast feeding, my little one got his first cold... so it shows how the breast milk keeps the little ones stronger...so thanks so much Rebecca :-)
Hi Rebecca, I just wanted to tell you that I am truely thankful a friend suggested your services and that I have my placenta encapsuted this time, rather than it going to waste. I would also like to say how excited I was with my yeild of 220 capsules. My baby is now 4 weeks old and I am feeling so much better than I did after the birth of my first child. I would highly recommend your services to my friends. Thanks again.
Dear Rebecca, I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that I felt my placenta capsules definitely helped with getting my hormones and mood back on track, and my milk supply. with my second baby. I'm very glad I encapsulated
my placenta, and will do it again with my next baby.
Dear Rebecca, I just wanted to say thank you for being their to support me during my pregnancy, birth and during my postnatal days you are caring and compassionate, and without you I dont think I would have acheived the wonderful birth that I could have only have dreamed about. I would also like to add that I am feeling so much more relaxed and feel more energetic since taking my placenta capsules. I would hightly recommend having your placenta encapsulated to any woman, as I do feel it has certainly helped me with breastfeeding my second baby. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The Breastfeeding Goddess – Thanks so much for all your support throughout my pregnancy and especially for going above and beyond during our hospitalisation! with our little one who was born prematurely and I appreciate all your hard work in helping us breastfeed. You are wonderful!
Thank you Rebecca, for providing me with the physical and emotional support throughout my labour and birth.
You preserved my dignity through the process, something that whilst I couldn’t comment on the time, was extremely grateful that this occurred. While my partner was able to concentrate on communicating with me, you were able to provide overall relief using a variety of techniques –massage, oil burners, music, attention to lighting, and warm water on my back.
You also helped me focus, and your presence was just what we needed. I would suggest that if something occurs that deviates from your birth plan significantly re method of the birth, that the woman’s partner requests time to consider the options allowing input from the doula without the medical staff present. I would highly recommend you to anyone, and look forward to having your support during my next pregnancy and birth.
Rebecca was wonderful! She got me through a very difficult time in our lives with my husband away on deployment in Afganistan. A new baby not wanting to feed, she helped me to turn this around. We had nothing but a wonderful experience with. We only wish we had known about her services for our first child.
Thank you so much.
I think without Rebecca, I would have not continued to breastfeed my twins for as long as I did, they were fully breastfed for 14 months, until they self weaned. Rebecca showed me how to position them well at the breast and saved me time by feeding them together, which I could never have achieved on my own. I am deeply thankful for your support and compassion. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Dear Rebecca, thank you so much for coming out promptly following the birth of our second daughter. Having sought out your assistance with our first baby, in 2009, and remembering what you said about seeking early assistance, this really made a difference with this baby. I felt so much more at ease when you came, I cant thank you enough, for your passionate and caring nature. If there was an Award for the work you do, I would certainly be one of the first to nominate you. Thanks so much again from the bottom of my heart.
Rebecca, thanks so much for your help with learning how to breastfeed successfully! I only wish I had called you 2 weeks earlier! It would have saved me that many weeks of pain and frustration. I really appreciated your promptness in coming out to our house, your professional, kind and helpful attitude, You helped me to accept that just because I’m female and my son is a newborn doesn’t mean we instinctually have everything together. In the past centuries, women had clans of other women to help them; not so much these days, but now we have you!
Rebecca taught us everything from breastfeeding, to how to settle our new baby. I had zero experience with infants and we have no family that could help – Rebecca gave me a great deal of confidence, in my abilities as a mother. My experience with breastfeeding is now such more pleasurable, I can highly recommend her to anyone having difficulties, and to seek out assistance early rather than later.
Thank you one again.
I just wanted to to let you know that without you Rebecca I don’t think I would have made that first step to see a GP regarding the post natal depression. If only I had sought your help out sooner but better late than never. You made a big impact on mine and my little ones life, the whole family really, and I thank you big time for your understanding and your advice. You were so easy to talk to and passionate in what you do. You definitely have chosen the right career, I couldn’t have done it without you. Thankyou so much Rebecca, keep up the fantastic work which I know you will do, you make such a difference to all the mums and little babies out there.
Thanks to Rebecca I got the reassurance I needed to know I was actually doing the right thing. Women don’t learn to breastfeed because we don’t watch each other breastfeed and that is why we sometimes need help. I got valuable advice about breastfeeding positions especially lying down (thank goodness!) and through a process of elimination we figured out the problems I was having was nothing to do with my technique or the baby but rather Raynaud’s. Through this elimination process I was able to present to my obstetrician who was able to make the diagnosis and prescribe medication which allowed me to breastfeed painfree until my baby weaned herself at 8 months.
Thank you Rebecca – I will definitely be breastfeeding my next child, it is so easy once you know what you are doing and have the confidence to do it!
My first children were twins. I was extremely sore, pumping seven to eight times a day but not making enough milk for two. I was tempted to throw it in. Rebecca was a life saver! She helped me identify that I had an infection (which quickly went away); she helped me set a double schedule for pumping and feeding; and she helped me relax and become less stressed about the whole process. I only wish I’d worked with her before I had my children — I would have avoided a lot of discomfort and stress. Rebecca also gave me lots of suggestions for my twins, having had experience with her own twins. Thank you very much.

Rebecca was my lifesaver, I don’t know what I would have done in the first few weeks of motherhood without her. I had a difficult start to breastfeeding. With Rebecca’s help, reassurance and encouragement, I was able to ensure that my baby daughter was able to be breastfed. Rebecca is a very compassionate person and was an amazing pillar of help and support throughout what was a difficult time.
She always put mine and our baby’s safety and well-being first. We really can’t thank Rebecca enough and she will always be so much more than a lactation consultant to us. Rebecca is an amazing woman with the biggest heart. She has a wealth of knowledge, is extremely passionate about her work and helping new mums. She is very professional and certainly one step ahead from the health professionals I had to deal with. I recommend Rebecca to everyone I know.
