Breastfeeding Consultations 

Breastfeeding is Mother Nature’s Health Plan.

Breastfeeding boosts your baby’s immune system, fighting against infections, including meningitis and pneumonia & reduces your baby’s risk of disease later in life. It’s good for you too - it helps with bonding, reduces the risk of breast cancer & can help you return to your pre-baby weight.

But sometimes mothers need a helping hand. That’s when a Lactation Consultant can help.

Karla Napier is a breastfeeding advisor based in Edinburgh, with 25 years of experience providing help and advice to mothers in all aspects of breastfeeding.

Karla offers several types of workshops and consultations to meet your specific needs:
