I'm here to support and empower you to achieve your breastfeeding and lactation goals!
Hi, I'm Sandra van der Jagt. I'm a registered nurse and an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) with over 9 years combined experience in delivery suite, postnatal and neonatal intensive care (NICU). I'm also a mom of one cheeky toddler. I'm here to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals!
Maybe breastfeeding isn't going the way you imagined. Maybe you're wondering why no one warned you breastfeeding can be so challenging when it's supposed to be so natural? So much about parenting can leave us feeling uncertain and vulnerable. It really does take a village. I'd love to be a part of your village to build your confidence and make your breastfeeding/lactation journey more manageable and enjoyable.
I offer home visits in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Visits further out may incur a travel fee. Virtual visits are also available for those outside the area and overseas.
* Please note: due to the local COVID-19 case numbers, I ask that you email me before booking to determine need for an in-home visit. Virtual consults can be offered as an alternative.*
Single home or virtual visit
Whether you want to learn more about breastfeeding before your baby arrives or you have already started your breastfeeding journey and things aren't going the way you hoped.
The visit includes helping with a feed and problem-solving specific issues you may be having.
Together we will create a plan to help you move forward.
Two weeks of text/email support are included.
A first visit (virtually or in your home) before baby arrives followed by text/email support until baby arrives. The second visit can be anytime after baby arrives to ensure things are on the right track or to troubleshoot specific issues you may have. This is followed by text/email support for two weeks.
Initial plus follow-up package:
Ideal if you are experiencing more complex issues or you feel you will want ongoing support. This includes an initial 2 hour visit plus a one hour follow-up visit. Each visit includes two weeks of text/email support.
- follow-up visits (virtual or in your home)
- extra weeks of text/email support
