About me.

My interest in breastfeeding started as a young child when I watched my mother feed her sixth baby. From start to finish I saw and felt the joy and togetherness that breastfeeding brought to both of them.

I experienced and overcame challenges during my own three breastfeeding experiences which has enabled me to have a wide ranging view of the problems mothers may encounter.

What is Lactation Consultant?

Someone who is professionally qualified to provide support and advice to mothers and babies. This international qualification has to be recertified every 5 years ensuring that all Lactation Consultants use up to date evidence based practice.

My qualifications.

  • International Board of Lactation Consultants since 1996.
  • Registered Midwife (retired 2012). I have been an integrated midwife for more than 20 years and during that time spent many happy hours supporting women and their babies immediately after birth and subsequently.
  • Lactation Consultants of Great Britain co-Co-Ordinator 2007 - 2009
  • La Leche league Peer Support Trainer.
  • State Registered Nurse.

My Professional Indemnity Insurance is provided by Holistic Insurance Services.

I look forward to having informal and friendly talks with you and your breastfeeding baby.
