Lactation Support


Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility and Ashford Hospital actively support women breastfeeding from day one of your child’s life.


If you are choosing to breastfeed your baby not long after your delivery, an Ashford Hospital midwife will be with you to help you get started.


Lactation consultants are available on the postnatal ward and through the newborn support service. Individual consultations are also available with the lactation consultants to support the establishment of breastfeeding.


One of Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility’s midwives is a qualified lactation consultant who can visit you in the hospital and at home to help support you in breastfeeding your baby. She is also available for consultations in our rooms and for helpful tips over the phone.


Please call Adelaide Obstetrics & Fertility (between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Monday to Friday) on 08 8272 7755 or (outside of our office hours) the Ashford Hospital Delivery Suite on 08 8375 5237.
