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.
