Find a Lactation Consultant

There are publicly funded services in the community offering Lactation support. To access these services ask your Lead Maternity Carer or Well Child provider, or contact your local maternity hospital or birthing unit.

The Directory below lists Lactation Consultants in NZ in private practice who are members of NZLCA.

NZLCA has a number for mothers (0800 4LACTATION or 0800 452282). This service is to help mothers locate breastfeeding help in their region, rather than to provide telephone counselling.        

To check whether someone is a current IBCLC go to the IBCLCE public registry webpage and search by in their full name.
