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 clinic at Bury Natural Health Centre: https://burynaturalhealth.co.uk/breastfeeding-and-infant-feeding-support/

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