I wish I had known Judy when I had my first-born. If you want a health professional who is going to give you long-lasting support with absolutely no judgement and an angel who will get you through those dreaded initial growth spurts, Judy is the lactation consultant for you.
Having Judy to guide me on breastfeeding and expressing was amazing. My baby was in ICU for nearly 6 weeks and I am proud to say that thanks to Judy she only ever received my milk. Judy gave me a plan, confidence and continued support without which I don’t think I would have been able to give my little girl the best nutrition.
Judy Kirkwood was the best choice we made with the birth of our beautiful daughter… She changed our lives, was with us every step of the way and is still guiding us when we introduced our daughter to solids. Any expecting mums out there. Trust me, meet Judy, use Judy, you won’t regret it.
Judy is incredible. She is so kind and takes the time to listen to what’s going on. The paed was worried about my baby’s weight gain and she reassured me that he was perfect the way he is. She gave me a few tricks to help with breastfeeding and expressing to make a difference to his weight gain and it’s been working. Our little boy has just gone over the 5kg mark and we are so happy. Thank you Judy!
Judy is just the best! I was nervous about breastfeeding and didn’t really know how or what to do. As it happens, Judy was out of town on the day I gave birth however, after having an antenatal consult with her, I was able to successfully breastfeed straight away! I remembered what she taught me and literally just did what she said I must do. Judy is extremely passionate and always there no matter the time of day or where she may be. I definitely owe my successful breastfeeding to Judy! I highly recommend her for EVERY new mom.
One of the things I really wanted to get right when my baby arrived was breastfeeding. It was something I was stressing about but after meeting with Judy before the birth and her helping me within an hour of my daughter being born in the hospital, my nerves were calmed and everything went smoothly. We are now successfully on 6 months of breastfeeding, aiming for a year. Thanks to Judy for her constant help and support, all the whatsapp messages and voice notes, she helped me immensely!
Something that I hadn’t even thought to stress about until it happened was the fact my baby refused to take a bottle – Judy once again assisted me with getting her to take one before I had to go back to work (she not only helps babies take to the breast, but take to the bottle too!). Can’t thank her enough!
Judy has been the best person to have around after the birth of my baby. She has made the expressing a much less daunting task and I look forward to learning her latching technique once our little one is ready to feed. She is an absolute must!
Judy has been absolutely amazing! We really wanted to give our baby the best “food” since birth, and Judy helped us do exactly that! We did not receive a lot of assistance with breastfeeding from the nurses in hospital and Judy was there to help us. She is very involved (starting before the birth), keeps up to date with your breastfeeding progress, is there to answer any questions, she has a very positive nature and is very professional. She has been amazing in our breastfeeding journey and I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much Judy for all your assistance!
Breastfeeding is a skill and whilst there is a motherly instinct that comes into play, you do need some guidance and support to help you along the way. Thank you again Judy!
Judy was a life saver! She picked up straight away that our son had a tongue tie (it was not brought to our attention by anyone else) and helped us each step of the way to ensure we understood the procedure with cutting the tongue tie and how we move forward with breastfeeding. My breastfeeding journey has not been easy but with Judy constantly checking in and helping me each step of the way it has been a good journey. I highly recommend Judy! She takes you under her wing and gives you the confidence to breastfeed!
I can’t thank Judy enough for all her advice, her tips and motivation. She is always available and manages to pick you up when you are down, and make you feel like supermom. Just the person you need to get through the many months of breastfeeding. And it is so worth it. Thank you Judy, I could never have given Emi the best start,with just over 11 months of breastmilk, without all your encouragement. You are the best.
When I gave birth at 26 weeks, I thought that there was no way I could have enough milk at that time to feed my baby . Judy Kirkwood, Lactation Consultant made everything easy, possible and pain free. I managed to get 60ml, I was excited and relieved that finally my daughter would have something to drink. She weighs 900g and takes 1ml every 3 hours. If Judy can help me, trust me, she can help you too.
It’s all about the twins. Breastfeeding can be so difficult, especially with twins. Thanks to Judy’s knowledge, special care, patience and constrictive advice I’m managing to breastfeed my twins without any complications. Six months and counting.
My wife recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Judy has been a blessing helping us with all things related to breastfeeding. Judy goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and explain the thinking behind all advice given. Judy has also done a lot of her own research into breastfeeding and has come up with some of the best techniques I have ever seen. Watch this space as I think Judy is about to transform breastfeeding globally.
