Are you breastfeeding your baby and feel like you need some help?
There is so much advice, often conflicting, about what you need to do. You have tried and it doesn’t seem to be working.
Maybe you are preparing to for the birth of your baby and thinking about breastfeeding or you want breastfeeding to be different with this baby.
I understand that.
Book a consultation with me, in your home, or online, I’ll help you get comfortable, grow in confidence and build a plentiful milk supply.
I have been supporting breastfeeding mothers and their babies since 2001 as a breastfeeding counsellor, NHS Infant Feeding Specialist and in private practice.
My background in breastfeeding counselling has given me a deep understanding of what it is to struggle with breastfeeding your baby.
Seeking support from a Lactation Consultant can be daunting and for most people it is the first time they have reached out for this kind of professional service. My aim is to make the process as easy as possible for you by being warm, empathic and non-judgemental. Nurturing a good relationship with you is at the heart of what I do.
I have a passion for helping mothers feel confident breastfeeding their babies. I love to see a new mother and baby get the hang of breastfeeding, seeing them move from wobbly beginners to an accomplished breastfeeding duo. I understand how difficult it can be, so a flexible approach is very important. A successful breastfeeding relationship for one mum is exclusive breastfeeding for another it might be mixed feeding or exclusively pumping her milk. Sometimes plans change I am there to listen, guide and help you whatever your journey.
I am able to draw back on the skills and knowledge of many years of experience working with mothers and babies from the hours after birth all the way through to breastfeeding older babies and children.
I can help with all common challenges and specialise in the following areas:
- Establishing breastfeeding after a difficult start.
- Feeding late preterm and early term babies born between 34-37 weeks gestation.
- Breastfeeding after tongue tie division
- Exclusively expressing/pumping
- Slow weight gain.
- Anxiety and breastfeeding
- Breastfeeding older babies and toddlers
- Working and breastfeeding
- Breastfeeding after a negative or unsuccessful experience of breastfeeding with previous babies.
