About Judy McPhillips
I am the eldest daughter of eight children, and have loved and nurtured babies all my life.
I studied to become a nurse and midwife after leaving school in Sydney. I then worked in Sydney and Canberra and currently work in Newcastle as a private lactation consultant
I have over 20 years experience in antenatal care, special care nursery, postnatal wards and visiting new mothers in their homes after discharge.
- I have been a registered nurse and midwife since 1969
- Bachelor of Health Science (Midwifery)
- International Lactation Consultant Qualification (IBCLC).
With three children of my own and four grandchildren, I am passionate about helping mothers and babies through what can be a very challenging time.
With a gentle and practical approach, I pass on my experience, whilst remaining flexible enough to recognise that there is more than one way to solve a problem.
In addition, I encourage active participation in problem solving from parents, recognising the fact that nobody knows a baby better than mum and dad.
I work privately as a Lactation Consultant and am available for consultations in your home.
Please contact me for more information on how I can help you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
