In Australia and New Zealand, lactation consultants work in public and private maternity hospitals, child health services and in private practice. Your GP or health professional may be able to recommend a consultant, or you can source one independently, without the need for a referral.

To access an IBCLC® in private practice, click on the Find a Lactation Consultant Link.

Private fees vary and health insurance rebates may apply. Lactation consultations are not covered by Medicare.

For more information, please contact us via phone or email.
