I attended Orla’s online breastfeeding course for both my pregnancies & I can honestly say I would never have had the successful breastfeeding journeys if it wasn’t for the knowledge, skills & confidence her course gave me. Maybe you want to breastfeed exclusively, maybe breastfeed & give a bottle to your little one, regardless of your preferences, Orla’s course will provide you with all the best knowledge you need to succeed. I would 1000% recommend, it is money well spent in my opinion! Thank you Orla.

Attended Orla’s introduction to breastfeeding course today and found it so beneficial. It is clear that Orla is a fountain of knowledge - she covers all topics, even the ones you might not have thought of but could come up as you start your breastfeeding journey! I feel so much better empowered and prepared for this journey and also have a sense of comfort knowing that I can reach out to her in the future if I encounter any issues. I would highly recommend this course to any mother interested in learning more about breastfeeding and how to start.

I met with Orla twice, once for a home consult when my little boy was 8 weeks old and again four weeks later for a mini consult via zoom. The reassurance which Orla gave me paved the way for such an enjoyable breastfeeding journey. Orla is extremely knowledgable and such a warm, friendly person which is exactly what I needed in those early weeks. Thank you for all of your help Orla! Jennifer and Baby Jack

So delighted to have met you Jennifer and help you along. Thank you for your kind words. You and Jack are doing brilliant.

Having attended Orla's breastfeeding class and having a consultation to solve issues with feeding and supply, I can highly recommend both. The breastfeeding class is very informative in preparation for commencing your breastfeeding journey and the book received with the breastfeeding course is invaluable source of information in the first few days and weeks when you are unsure weather you are doing right or wrong! The one to one consultation helped me continue breastfeeding as I was really considering giving up! Orla gave me great tips and solutions for issues I was having. The follow up support is a also fantastic. Thank you Orla!

I attended Orla's class during pregnancy and it made me feel informed and ready for the journey ahead. My partner sat in on the class and as a result was able to offer me loads of helpful advice that I was too tired to remember in the first few weeks of feeding. I refered to Orla's book a lot in the first few weeks too. I ended up having trouble with an oversupply and had a house visit with Orla and she helped me to work through it and gave lots of helpful advice and support at time I was definitely feeling vulnerable and exhausted. Orla arrived at the house with lots of enthusiasm and such a positive attitude. I am a few months into breastfeeding now and really enjoying it. Thanks Orla for giving us such a positive start!

Grace, thank you so much 💓 So delighted your partner was able to attend and offer that support to you when the exhaustion sets in. They are the memory sticks! You were a pleasure to help Grace and so delighted all has gone so well and you are enjoying it. Every mother deserves this. Thank You Grace

Orla was a great help to me after my baby's tongue tie was released. She showed me some different breastfeeding holds and small tweaks really helped with my baby's latch and helped me too as breastfeeding was very sore due to the tongue tie and difficulty latching her on properly. Thanks again Orla Olivia and Caragh

You see so welcome Olivia and its amazing what a few small tweaks can do to your comfort and babys efficiency. A pleasure to help Olivia and Caragh

Orla is an absolute fountain of knowledge about all things baby and breastfeeding - that's obvious to anyone who follows her Insta bgram profile. Her Introduction to vBreastfeeding course was absolutely invaluable to me as I prepared for the birth of my first baby. I felt confident, well equipped and positive about starting breastfeeding. I took the handbook to hospital with me and it was brilliant to have there as a guide- to look up any questions I had about 'speed bumps' along the way. My baby is almost 6 weeks old now, and thanks to Orlas help she is thriving! I recently had a small issue with a blocked milk duct,whipped out the book and following Orlas guidance it was cured in a few hours! I could not recommend Orla enough. She is simply a genius in her field!

I currently live in a rural part of france & between the language barrier & breastfeeding not being overly encouraged here I don’t think I would have been able to begin or continue my breastfeeding journey without Orla’s support. I cannot recommend the introduction to breastfeeding course enough, it gave me such confidence & knowledge going into my breastfeeding journey. I found the content, the information & demonstrations in the course so informative & helpful. When my little daughter arrived, I was confident in knowing what I was doing, we had a great start & I obtained a good latch very early in our journey. My baby is now three weeks old & I am really enjoying our breastfeeding journey. Yes it’s tough at the beginning & it takes work. In week two I really struggled with engorgement, it was painful, I was having some baby blues, my baby was unable to latch to my breast, she was frustrated, I was frustrated & I did think about throwing in the towel at this point. I emailed Orla in the middle of the night in desperation to see if I could get a online consultation - I woke to an email, with a load of tips & advice along with a consultant for the next day! That email saved me - I followed her tips & advice and by that evening my baby was back latched to my breast, the pain was gone & I knew I could do this again. The consult 1:1 was amazing, informal & comfortable and we could chat about a plan going forward which has just given me such confidence especially since I don’t have access to supports here in france! She gave me the knowledge to start & the support I needed when I ran into difficulties. I felt super comfy chatting to her & I will not hesitate to link in with her in the future should I ever run into difficulties again - she really was an amazing support for this new first time mumma ❤️

Lisa, you have explained so well what I wish all mothers should feel when they take a class and have good support lined up on their breastfeeding journey with their baby. It is so important like you have done to set yourself up prior to baby arriving and reaching out for support when in trouble. You are a pleasure to work with Lisa, enjoy those snuggles with your little girl. Thank you so much for taking the time to write up a lively honest review and how you felt.

I took Orla's class this weekend and all I can say is I wish I took it sooner. I am expecting baby number 3 and have breastfed my other two children. With my last child I stopped breast feeding after a month and I swore if I had any more children I would never breast feed again. Here I am now, excited to start my breastfeeding journey with my 3rd and I'm feeling so much more confident. I learned so much from the breastfeeding class. Thanks so much Orla for giving me this knowledge and confidence.
Reply from Breastfeeding Consultant Orla Dorgan 2023.11.20
Oh Laura, I'm so delighted and excited for you that you feel this for your 3rd baba. Sometimes, new information, renews your confidence on this very special journey. Delighted to have you Laura. Thank you

Orla is a wealth of information on bottle, breast, pumping and everything in between when it comes to feeding your baby. She's excellent at explaining things in a clear and practical manner. Anyone suffering from information overload or anyone who wants a bit more of a personalised service will benefit greatly from a consultation with Orla. No judgements or agendas, just support and help on how best to feed your baby for you and your family.
