About me

My name is Amber Mae Kelly. I am a wife, mother, Registered Dietitian and Certified Lactation Consultant.

In 2014 I completed my BSc in Biochemistry and Microbiology at NMU, and in 2018 I completed my BSc in Dietetics (cum laude) at NMU. After my internship, I completed my community service year at the Health Center at the military base in Grahamstown.

Becoming a mother and breastfeeding my first child ignited my passion for breastfeeding, so in 2020 I decided to study towards becoming a lactation consultant through Wits University (SACLC). My passion lies in maternal, infant and child nutrition and being a mother of 2 has given me the first-hand experience in this field too.

I am passionate about educating parents and individuals, equipping clients with knowledge that is founded on evidence-based research and offering as much support as possible on your parenthood journey.

    Client Feedback & Reviews

    Results often speak louder than words... Here is what our clients are saying.

    Amber gave me professional advice in a kind and nurturing way. It improved my breastfeeding journey almost instantly.

    While I was pregnant, I was so excited to be able to breastfeed my new baby! What an incredible thing to be able to do as a mother. This turned out to be alot harder than it looks. Amber popped in to see us the day after my son was born. She so gently helped us, from positioning to latching to propping pillows under my arms to make sure I was comfortable, all the while encouraging us (this may seem silly, but wow, what a difference that bit of encouragement makes!). We are now 2 weeks post partum and she's been my on call friend and breastfeeding encyclopedia the last few days! No matter how simple or random the query, she is literally a message away, and so eager to help and answer your questions.
    If you're a first time mom PLEASE contact Amber. She honestly makes the journey of breastfeeding so much easier!
    Amber - THANK YOU! From the bottom of our hearts 💕 we will be forever grateful for your love, support and encouragement.

    After learning the wrong way to breastfeed in the hospital leaving me with cracked and bleeding nipples….I started talking to Amber. Life changing. We chatted back and forth with videos and photos of feeds so she could see what was wrong and corrected the sucking & latching.
    Everything she said came with detailed pictures and videos so it was super easy to follow. It’s safe to say I am now breastfeeding the correct way, I feel more confident and I know I’ve got someone who can REALLY help. Every new mom needs an Amber in their lives for those first few days 👏🏻🤩🌸

    Amber Kelly registered dietician is absolutely amazing, super supportive and always ready to answer all your questions. I highly recommend her! 💃
