I provide in-home lactation consultations and online support, so you feel comfortable and don't have to leave the house with your new baby. I also make products to help support your breastfeeding journey including speciality breastpads for people with Raynauds and DIY at-breast supplement kits to help keep your baby at the breast.
"I'm a strong breastfeeding supporter, and really hope that the products and services available will help other parents to successfully breastfeed. Breastfeeding can be difficult at the start, and conditions like Raynaud's, mastitis, and a low milk supply can be huge obstacles to overcome. However, with the right information and help, most breastfeeding issues can be overcome, and breastfeeding can go on to become the beautiful, bonding experience with your baby that it should be." - Sarah
Summer Warmth was created by Tara, a mother from Hamilton (New Zealand). She started making breastwarmers when she was pregnant with her second child and suffering from Raynaud's. The finished product was amazing and Tara felt sure that other women would benefit from them as she had. Further product testing occurred after her daughter's birth, and other products were sourced and created.
In early 2015 Summer Warmth changed owners and is currently owned by Sarah Hudson (IBCLC, La Leche League Leader, and mother).
In 2018, Summer Warmth expanded to provide in-home Lactation Consults with an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). In-home visits are for all parents, whether you are a breastfeeding mum, a chestfeeding dad, bodyfeeding non-binary person - these home visits will be tailored to provide the support you need.
At Summer Warmth, we provide support in all areas of baby feeding, so if you need help - please get in contact today.
