My particular interest in childhood and post – pregnancy/ birthing issues, comes from my own struggles and joys of this very demanding time. Kinesiology is unique in that it relies upon an individuals own innate healing power and allows me to get below the surface of symptoms. This is very useful for trauma and emotionally challenging events in life, that can manifest themselves as Physical symptoms.

Lynne Hall offers a holistic approach to supporting breastfeeding and fully supports the research findings that antenatal education is especially beneficial in helping women successfully breastfeed. Similarly, research also shows women will successfully feed longer if they see a lactation consultant with breastfeeding problems in the early days and weeks of breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding is like learning to drive a car, no one expects a new mother to know everything about breastfeeding and settling their baby within the first 1 to 3 weeks.

Lynne can help treat and resolve issues related to sore nipples, painful breastfeeding, concerns about supply, settling and sleeping very early before they become problems and anxieties. Often one visit is all that is needed.
A follow up visit is only required if absolutely needed or by request from the mother & or partner.
