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 travel in Suffolk, to provide support to you, and your baby, in your own home (areas covered subject to discussion).




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 nine years experience of supporting families with their infant feeding issues, both in the NHS and in the private sector.

Prices

You will receive a written report by email following your visit, in addition to any notes I provide on the day, relating to a feeding plan, or other steps to be taken.

In some cases, this consultation may include an assessment and referral for tongue-tie (restricted lingual frenulum).

Follow-up visit: £55 per hour

Individual pregnancy consultation: £55 per hour

What to prepare

Please try to feed the baby about one hour before the consultation, so they are not too hungry, however, baby also needs to be awake and alert during the consultation ideally. Please have the baby’s red book available and any notes.
