Hi, welcome to Mama Linc! My name is Courtney and I am a mother to an energetic toddler with another one on the way. I have over 10 years combined experience as a Registered Nurse (RN), Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a Sleep Consultant.
As a RN working in the NICU, I spent years teaching parents how to care for their newborn, breastfeed, pump and much, much more. After years of hearing numerous parents say they wished they could take me home with them, I started working privately with families in their home as a Postnatal, Lactation and Sleep Consultant.
During my time with these families and babies I gained insight and confidence in knowing exactly what parents needed and what worked and didn’t work. I saw which issues arose with caring for baby, breastfeeding and sleep. I also realised that there are very limited resources available for parents, and I wanted to make reliable expert advice more accessible. Thus, Mama Linc was born!
My mission is to empower parents to feel confident, self assured and at ease as they navigate parenthood! I want to minimise stress and worries, and let you enjoy those precious early days with your baby
Can’t wait to work together,
Courtney Garland BScN, RN, IBCLC
