Bel is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant ( IBCLC) on Sydney’s Northern Beaches providing private lactation education, support and assistance to pregnant women, new or experienced mums and their support people.

Bel will work in partnership to address any breastfeeding concerns or issues you might have and create a breastfeeding plan that works for both you and your baby.
