An introduction to all the people you will get to know
Sr Lyn Smit
(RN RM IBCLC SACLC CFT)
I am the manager of Sr Lyns Baby Clinic. I am a qualified General Nurse and Midwife, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Cranial Fascial Therapist. Midwifery was my chosen field of expertise. As a trained midwife I have many years of Labour ward and Neonatal nursing experience. I am qualified in sexual and reproductive health care. I have been working in clinics for the last 15 to 20 years mainly lactation management, immunizing and family planning (contraception). I am passionate about getting breastfeeding off to a good start. I have a special interest in nutrition and ensuring our babies that visit the clinic are eating healthily. I am a mother of 4 adult children and a grand-mother of 6.
Sr Doriska Posthumus
(B.CUR US RN RM SACLC)
I am a Registered Nurse and Midwife with a B.Cur degree from the University of Stellenbosch. I have more than 10 years experience in midwifery, teaching and general primary health care clinics including child health. I also recently qualified as a South African Certified Lactation Consultant. I am a mother of two and understand many of the challenges that go hand-in-hand with raising babies and children. I needed the professional, empathetic support from a healthcare professional when my first child was born in 2009. I did not have that. I am passionate about providing that much needed support and empathy to other mothers. Not only do I want to deliver that support service to the mother and other caregivers but, I want to provide the best care for the child. They have the right to the best nutrition available and the best vaccinations and health care available. That is why I stay up to date with recent research regarding breastfeeding, immunizations and nutrition.
