ABOUT ME

Jillian Wiffen 

Jillian Wiffen 

Caring for mothers and babies became my focus early in my nursing career. I moved from general to midwifery nursing and then specialized in neonatal intensive care. After certifying as a Lactation Consultant in 2002, I have worked exclusively in this field in community and hospital settings in the Perth region. In 2014, I completed my Master of Midwifery (Human Lactation specialisation) and I thank the families that made this possible. We all know breastfeeding is best for our babies but sometimes it is difficult and I feel privileged to help families at this very special time.

 

 

Special Interests

I have considerable experience caring for small and pre-term babies and they often benefit from special attention in the first few weeks of life. My Masters’ research project followed the development of these babies, and measured their mother’s milk production in naturally conceived and IVF pregnancies.
