Simone Casey - International Board Certified Lactation Consultant
Simone is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), member of the Lactation Consultants of Australia and New Zealand (LCANZ) and a volunteer breastfeeding counsellor with the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA). She works in a private hospital breastfeeding clinic in the inner-city and has her own private practice, visiting mums in their homes in the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne.
She is passionate about helping mothers to breastfeed and can help with issues concerning supply, positioning and attachment, babies not adequately gaining weight, sucking difficulties, transitioning premature babies from tube to breast, breastfeeding multiples, and more.
Unlike many lactation consultants, Simone's background is actually in journalism and she worked for Who magazine as a writer/editor for 20 years, followed by 5 years of freelancing. She regularly blogs for the ABA's national website, has recorded several podcast episodes and has written a regular nutrition column for Practical Parenting.
