Jillian Malan

I’m an IBCLC and am willing to help guide you as you decide to bring in a milk supply and donate that milk, or if you desire to suppress your supply. I promise to give you professional guidance that is intensly personal. I’ve miscarried 2 of my own children, so I also know intimately the challenges that you face, and would be honored to be at your side.


I am from Adelaide Australia. I am a mother of four children and an angel baby so I understand first hand what a mother goes through during this difficult time. I am also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Birth & Postnatal Doula.



I am a NICU RN, IBCLC and Childbirth educator. I host a monthly pregnancy support group & co-host a pregnancy loss support group.
