Together, we can talk things through and draw up a strategy that will work for you

Hello and welcome, whether you are:

  • Still pregnant and looking for feeding information before baby arrives
  • Struggling with the early days or weeks of breastfeeding a new baby
  • Encountering a breastfeeding challenge - even after a trouble-free start
  • Just feeling that something is not right, or that you have got in a muddle with feeding
  • Wondering whether your baby's feeding style or behaviour is normal, etc....!

Whatever stage this finds you, my way of working is to offer:

  • A listening ear and a gentle, compassionate approach
  • TIME to hear your story, assess feeding and talk through your feelings
  • TIME to take account of all aspects of your situation. The 'Big Picture' is important - there is so much more to breastfeeding than just following a set of instructions
  • Time to explain what is happening, explore your options and help you draw up a feeding plan that works for you and your family.    
  • Information and options - there are always options. 
  • Ongoing support as you work towards your feeding goals.
