About From Little Things

Hi, I’m Jess. 

I am a Midwife, Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), wife and mother of three exuberant children. I have been working with women and their families in the maternity setting for the last 15 years in both the public and private sectors, across three different states in Australia, finally settling down in Adelaide.

My experience of breastfeeding my children was a mixed bag, with all three babies being born with tongue ties. I, unfortunately, was also predisposed to mastitis and had many episodes of this with each baby. Through the difficult times with feeding, I relied on the support and guidance of a Lactation Consultant and my Midwife colleagues. With their help, I was able to overcome the difficulties that I faced and enjoy a long and happy breastfeeding experience with all of my children.

I am passionate about providing individualised, practical support that meets the needs and goals of the family I am supporting. My focus is on the normality of feeding, only intervening when there is a problem. I work closely with other health professionals and will forward a thorough consultation report to GP services, Paediatricians or any other relevant health provider to ensure continued support.

At From Little Things, we know that not every breastfeeding issue can be resolved in one consultation. To ensure that you are well supported after our session, you will be given a follow-up phone call the next day and access to email support for one week after consultation. Should you wish to book another visit, 90 min follow-up consultations are available at a reduced rate.
