Joelleen Winduss Paye, Holistic Lactation Consultant

Clinic Consultations: Melbourne Naarm

Virtual Consultations: Worldwide

Hi, I’m Joelleen.

What can I help you with?

As an IBCLC Holistic Lactation Consultant (+ Midwife, Naturopath & Educator), I can offer non-judgemental and holistic support with common breastfeeding/feeding challenges such as:

Planning for your upcoming breastfeeding journey

Supporting confidence in your breastfeeding technique (latching)

Addressing causes of nipple pain

Increasing milk supply through nutrition, supplements, herbs & medication

Engorgement & mastitis support

Support with nipple shields + weaning nipple shields

Support with oversupply & fast flow

Support with fussing during & after breastfeeding

Bottle feeding & bottle refusal

Returning to work breastfeeding & pumping plans

Debriefing previous breastfeeding challenges & forward planning

Ending breastfeeding & weaning support

I use a holistic approach, assessing your breastfeeding technique, and your baby’s developmental stage and needs, and use my naturopathy knowledge to enhance your physical and mental well-being. All home & virtual consultations include a bespoke JWP Feeding Guide PDF and 10% off Vital.ly naturopathic recommendations.

Joelleen is incredibly kind, knowledgeable and professional – my only regret is not engaging in her services sooner in my breastfeeding journey. The session was so relaxed, it allowed for plenty of time for discussion and on the spot feeding support and I left feeling empowered and set up for success. Joelleen provided an extensive feeding support guide post session that I still refer to daily! One of the best investments you can make for your postpartum journey.

Joelleen’s holistic approach was just what I needed to feel supported after a previously difficult time breastfeeding. Her gentle guidance was clear and backed up with a written plan and generous sharing of helpful resources.

Joelleen has been supporting my breastfeeding journey since the day my son was born. As a first-time mum with anxious tendencies, her calm, considered and clear advice gave me the foundations from which to get through the steep learning curve of learning how to breastfeed. On minimal, broken sleep, learning any new skill is that much more difficult. Having Joelleen come over to our house and observe our baby feeding was absolutely invaluable, honestly the best money I invested during my postpartum period. The peace of mind she provided allowed me to push through the very tough early days knowing that I had someone non-judgmental and knowledgeable to reach out to when I was completely lost, in pain and feeling helpless. Joelleen was always there to guide me back onto a better path, giving me the confidence to push on. I never could have imagined the value of a lactation consultant, but now it’s the #1 recommendation I have for my pregnant girlfriends to have teed up straight after birth as a simple safety net to preserve your sanity before shit can hit the fan around low/oversupply, mastitis, nipple damage etc.

My breastfeeding journey would have ended much sooner if I hadn’t worked with Joelleen. She helped with latch and positioning but also helped me build a realistic and well-rounded plan for breastfeeding into the future. Joelleen was super caring and professional, she turned around a detailed plan really quickly – it’s something I refer back to often. Having the two-house visits and email support was also really helpful for us, it meant we could work on what we learnt in the first consult and follow up with questions in the second. Highly recommend!
