I had a great experience at Hegen Lactation Centre. Beautiful office space that is baby friendly and great customer service. Siew Hwa from Hegen was very prompt in answering to all my enquiries. Most importantly, they got a very knowledgeable Lactation Consult, Abie. She patiently guided my husband and I from prenatal (caring for a newborn) to post natal (breastfeeding). We have learnt a lot under her care. Thank you :)
Went for the Postnatal lactation consultation and it is very helpful. Totally no regrets. I gained so much knowledge and tips on breastfeeding. Abie is very patient and friendly. The whole session is very comfortable. I highly recommend moms and mom to be to attend so your breastfeeding journey will be easier. It is worthy I promise. Thank you Siew Hwa and Abie for the warm hospitality!

The Hegen Lactation Centre is a beautiful space to visit. My baby and I visited the centre for a lactation consultation and to collect a pump rental. I learned so much from Abie about how to deep latch and make our feeding sessions more effective!
