Professional Lactation Service
We provide tailor-made consultation and treatment that fit into your baby's and your family's specific needs. Together, we walk with you and your family from pregnancy to your baby's first birthday and help tackle breastfeeding problems. Some common problems include delayed milk supply, insufficient milk production, blocked ducts, mastitis, poor latch, cracked or sore nipples.
Tackle The Top 5 Most Common Problems
Poor Latch - Practical and clear guidance on how to achieve a good latch to prevent you from having nipple pain, to ensure baby has enough breastmilk intake to decrease weight loss early post-birth.
Cracked/ Sore Nipples - A correct latch and breastfeeding position will prevent you from having sore or cracked nipple. We analyse how the pain or cracks are formed and help correct baby's latch accordingly. This helps you achieve a longer breastfeeding journey and helps achieve your goal.
Engorgement Pain - When milk starts to come in (2-3 days after vaginal birth, 3-4 days after Caesarian Section), engorgement pain can be a hindrance for a smooth start of breastfeeding. We design ways to help you relieve the engorgement pain once you have been discharged.
Low Milk Supply - Very often, this comes up in the first week post birth. We have a full 5-day program to ensure you seize the first 7 days, which is the golden period to establish your breastmilk supply.
Blocked Duct - Prevention is always better than cure. The two major preventive measures of blocked duct are good latch (or pick a good pump) and a healthy frequency of direct feeding (or pumping). We design your pumping or feeding schedule according to you and your family needs.
Why Hire an IBCLC
International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) is lactation specialist, and is certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examinars (IBCLE) only after rigorous training, thousands of clinical hours and passing comprehensive medical exams. This is the highest level of specialisation available in lactation. In Hong Kong, there are over 200 IBCLC's. They are mostly registered nurses hired by local public or private hospitals. Instead of practising in a hospital setting, our privately practising IBCLC's make home visits for mothers during their confinement period. Clinical recommendations given by IBCLC's are required to be based on scientific researches, which are important for new mothers who very often receive very mixed recommendation from her care-givers.
Can Breastfeeding be Effortlessly Done?

exclusive breastfeeding rates of babies born in 2018
At Discharge - 87.5%*
At 1 month - 32.6%!
At 6 months - 26.3%!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Michelle also answered my questions and concerns offline, which was a great way to help new and expecting moms de-stress and know that everything is ok!
She is very professional and thoughtful. She helped clearing my clogs with her massaging skills and it was such a great relief for me!
She is very re-assuring. I suspected that I had blocked duct but in fact it was engorgement pain the day I got discharged from hospital. Michelle reassures me that I do not have blockage nor mastitis. I got the most out of her 5-hour guided breastfeeding support service.
