Mama Knows

Breastfeeding Consultation for the Hamilton and Surrounding Region

Breastfeeding support for new babies who are having difficulties feeding naturally



Laura Goodbrand

Lactation Consultant


I am a married mother with 3 active children. (9, 7, 5) I completed my training as a practical nurse and was licenced in 2010, when I began practicing at Hamilton’s Juravinski Hospital. This is when I began training as a lactation consultant. In April of 2018, I was awarded my International Board Certified Lactation Consultant License and now successfully offering private lactation consultation services to new and experienced mothers.

Philosophy and Mission

I'm driven to help others find success, which is why I chose to expand my career into this specific field. Its a very rewarding process to meet a mother who's looking for help to successfully feed, working with her on successful techniques and watching her successfully feed on her own.

I believe each mother is different and there is not generic technique that works for everyone. I'm driven to help you find success and provide you with a feeling of accomplishment.

Your Experience


Laura is amazing. She is incredibly knowledgeable and so helpful - she offered her services and helped with different positions, techniques and stretches that have helped with nursing our little girl. 

Definitively recommend her 100%


I had the pleasure of having Laura come to my house to help with my newborn. She has great support information and is an extremely good support systems to help me reach my goals. Being my last, I would like to breastfeed long-term and she makes it feel possible to do so. The advice and tips she gave me were beyond what I expected.
