Lactation consultant Manouk
Welcome to Lactation Consultant Manouk, your lactation consultant in Almere. I support (expectant) mothers with all their breastfeeding questions. Breastfeeding is a natural process of the female body, but breastfeeding is more than just feeding. Although it is a natural process, things don’t always turn out as you would have hoped or expected. Sometimes you can use a little help and support. That’s what I’m here for as your lactation consultant.
What does a lactation consultant do?
A lactation consultant is there to make sure that breastfeeding your baby goes as smoothly as possible. For you and your baby. Do you experience problems when the baby is latching on to your breast? Do you feel pain while feeding? Do you have doubts about your baby’s growth? These are all questions that you can discuss with a lactation consultant.
People tend to think that you can only meet with a lactation consultant when your baby is born. Nothing is further from the truth. I’m already available for you during your pregnancy. Maybe you’re searching for information or advice during your pregnancy to be perfectly prepared. Whatever questions you might have: I am there to help you. I can advise you and your partner and guide you (and your baby) via a consultation in your home. The consultation is fully tailored to your personal situation and needs.
Certified lactation consultant for Almere
I am an internationally trained IBCLC lactation consultant and registered with the NVL (Nederlandse Vereniging van Lactatiekundigen, the Dutch Association of Lactation Consultants). This means that you can rely on my knowledge and expertise. As a certified lactation consultant I have to meet strict requirements. I offer you quality and security. But of course I do more than that. Breastfeeding is personal and intimate. That is why I value kind, informal communication and good cooperation.
