FEILDING LACTATION SERVICES
Helping you to achieve your breastfeeding goals
Welcome to Feilding Lactation Services.
Breastfeeding gives a child the best possible start in life, it has a positive long-term impact on a child's growth and development and enhances the well being of breastfeeding women too. I am here to support you on your breastfeeding journey.
ABOUT MARY MCGARVEY
I am a NZ Registered Nurse with expertise and passion for the early years of life. I have completed formal education and am an experienced International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Through Feilding Lactation Services I support mothers by providing individual mother and baby centered advice for breastfeeding. This includes providing support based on evidence and best practice about breastfeeding and your baby’s behaviour with strategies which will work for your family/whanau.
FEILDING LACTATION SERVICES
INITIAL LACTATION CONSULTATION AND HOME VISIT
I offer individual breastfeeding support in the privacy of your own home. Together we will work through an assessment and form an individual breastfeeding plan to help you move forward.
If it will help support you I can link with your midwife and/or GP.
The Initial Breastfeeding Consultation usually takes around 1.5 hours. After my visit, I will email you a summary of the consultation and your breastfeeding plan so that you have a handy reference when implementing any changes.
Digital Consultations are available via Zoom.
During the week of your initial home visit I will be in touch with a phone call to provide additional guidance or support.
If you need further lactation support a follow-up visit can be arranged.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY.....
"My whanau and I are so thankful to Mary for her ongoing support and encouragement during the first few weeks of our newborn. Mary's help really made a difference to us. I found Mary the calmest and most patient person that I could ever have come across.
My world was tipped upside down with a new baby who was not feeding well or gaining weight. I found that with a calm approach I could feel at peace while she guided me step by step until I was breastfeeding unassisted from her or a nipple shield. She gave me options and choices to make during our visits and made me feel like I was totally on top of it, even though I had a massive road ahead of me. She quickly responded to my request for help and she used really good communication. I feel that any mother with feeding problems or issues should totally use Mary without a second thought."
