KINSALE woman, midwife and lactation vonsultant Clare Boyle has opened Cork’s first private breastfeeding clinic in Bishopstown, Cork.
The clinic will enable breastfeeding women who are experiencing problems with breastfeeding to access skilled breastfeeding help easily.
Clare who is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant has been helping breastfeeding mothers for the past ten years by visiting them in their homes said she was finding it challenging to keep up with demand and that the clinic will help facilitate the greater demand.
Clare also says that the clinic will make her more accessible to women from a wider area and already has had women from Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford come to the clinic for breastfeeding help.
Cork GP and new mum Rachel Barry visited the clinic last week and said Clare was fantastic, “The advice Clare gave me was invaluable and I was able to overcome the problems I was having and continue to breast feed.
“Her advice was up-to-date, practical and very easy to apply.
“It is reassuring to know that somebody like Clare is available to help at such a time and I would highly recommend her to my own patients”.
Clare has a new website www.breastfeedingconsultant.ie.
