About

If you are breastfeeding currently, and need help, or if you are pregnant, and you would like to prepare for breastfeeding, I can offer you care and support that is tailored specifically to your needs.

I will support your feeding choices, and give you the best guidance that I can, to reach your personal goals. I promise to listen fully and without judgement. I work with parents who breastfeed, formula feed or who want to mix feed too.

I can see you in my clinic and provide support to you, and your baby.




I am a registered Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), with a recognized qualification that means I have over 1000 hours of clinical work, several years’ study and training. You can find out more about the differences between different feeding support offered in the UK here: http://www.lcgb.org/why-ibclc/whos-who-in-breastfeeding-support-and-lactation-in-the-uk/

Prior to becoming an IBCLC, I have ten years experience of supporting families with their infant feeding issues, both in the NHS and in the private sector.

What to prepare

Please try to ensure baby is almost ready to feed when you visit so I can assess the feeding. Please have the baby’s red book available and any notes.
