About Us

Welcome to Coast Lactation, where you can access quality expert breastfeeding support and guidance. Here at Coast we acknowledge the uniqueness of each breastfeeding journey and provide individualized care to empower families to achieve their goals. We know that motherhood and breastfeeding can be challenging.

With so much information and advice in the community it is difficult to interpret what is best for you and baby. 


With many years of experience in working with breastfeeding families we can provide strategies and support to promote successful breastfeeding and a positive experience for the whole family. Our philosophy is not to tell families what to do but to provide quality information, education and support to instill confidence and enable parents to discover their innate connection with their baby’s.
