Can try Helen at Raffles Hospital. my wife and I found her helpful and patient in helping my wife n baby with the breastfeeding process.
i agree with Cmeilim! and erm, she nursed all her 2 kids, so she's had first-hand experience in nursing, unlike some consultants in the hospitals who only know the tjeory.
Doris Fok is the main reason why I didn't give up breastfeeding and am still breastfeeding dear daughter today. I will always be very grateful to her.
I had a lot of prob starting out and she was very kind when i called her up in tears, a few days after i was discharged.
She actually made an appt with me the very next day, before she went for work at NUH.
She didn't only offer me bfing advice but also gave me a lot of other advise on how to cope with unwanted comments on bfing etc. And she was very kind and understanding when this hormonally haywired mummy started sobbing and complaining to her.
Her charges are among the most reasonable in Singapore, but cos she works with NUH now, it may be more difficult to get her for pte consultation.

I did what I knew. And when I knew better, I did better.
Any updates on this thread?
Any mummy went to a LC before giving birth? Or you booked them prior to birth? I had my 1st baby and only managed to bf her till 6 months only. But I did exclu pumping. Didnt manage to latch her bcoz pf short nipple. Now after getting more experience, I would like a LC consult first prior to birth so as to prep me better. Anyone have similar experience?
Anyone know whether sister kang still provide consultation ??
sister kang was my lactation consultant when i gave birth and i really like her. she is patient and encouraging. i saw her at the babycare festival and even though she's so bz she took time out to speak to me about my concerns of breastfeeding after going back to work. she also gave a talk on baby massage techniques and i found that helpful.
I loveeeeee Alice Teh from Thompson. She is sooooo different from others at Thompson that are harsh, impatient and fierce. She is kind, very patient, also makes sure I know how to do it myself rather than just showing.
Problem is its expensive for house calls - Thompson rates are $190 for 1.5 hours and if you go to parentcraft center there is no guarantee you will get her - they will assign whoever is free. Parentcraft center is only $85
She helped me latch on day 4, massage my lumps away at week 4 and week 8. I wouldnt be breastfeeding my boy at 4months now if it wasn't for her. Expensive but worth every single penny!
My baby is 2 months plus now and is currently bottle feed (formula) as few weeks ago he rejected my breast. Previously, every feed I will direct bf him first then top up formula with bottle. But right now I really missed and want to total bf him. I dont't wish to give up. Is there still hope to switch baby back to bf?
I'm also looking for good lactation consultant i can read about Ms Doris Fok ..that's is really good enough.i would try to visit her.

I would recommend doctor Shana.
