Beck is a Registered Midwife, since 2009, in addition to being a Lactation Consultant. " I have always been passionate about breastfeeding, so studying to become a Lactation Consultant was the next logical step! I qualified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2014."
"As a Lactation Consultant, I love supporting Mums to overcome breastfeeding challenges; and empowering them with the knowledge and skills to continue to enjoy their own special breastfeeding experience. I offer clients a safe space where we can work together to formulate and achieve their individual goals. I acknowledge that every breastfeeding Mum and baby have unique circumstances, and take a holistic approach to understand each client’s needs."
Beck has worked as a Lactation Consultant in a number of different roles including for a local Municipality; and in private practice. "I also continue to work as a Midwife in West Gippsland. Families have always been a priority for me – I have a background and qualifications in Early Childhood, and many years of experience working with families of diverse backgrounds."
"I have raised 5 breastfed babies; now that they are young adults I’m finding that life is a “little” less frantic! Life is still busy enough though, as I live on a rural acre with my partner, a dog, cat, ducks, chooks and geese. I enjoy being as self-sufficient as possible, thus we have a huge vege garden; and also keep bees. I also enjoy kayaking and camping. "
