Shona Cassels – Lactation Consultant
“I am an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). An IBCLC is the only internationally certified health care professional in the clinical management of breastfeeding and human lactation. This means I am a specialist in lactation management and breastfeeding, with the skills and knowledge to assist with all breastfeeding problems.
My passion is supporting women to breastfeed. I strongly feel that parents and parents-to-be deserve the best evidence-based information about breastfeeding, together with skilled and nurturing support, to reach their own breastfeeding goals. I also recognise the importance of collaborating with other health professionals to meet a family’s needs. I enjoy providing support, options and practical solutions, to help mums have the best possible breastfeeding experience with their babies.”
