I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and I am passionate about working to ensure that parents are fully informed and supported in their choices regarding infant feeding and relationship building.
Since overcoming tokophobia (a severe fear of pregnancy and birth) and having my little boy in 2013 I have become increasingly involved in the field of infant feeding support.
As both a Peer Supporter and an Infant Feeding Support Worker for the NHS I worked directly with many, many parents, supporting them face to face to help them reach their goals. I also delivered, and helped to develop, antenatal 'Infant Feeding' and 'Building a Happy Baby' workshops for parents as well as training sessions for hospital staff and GPs.
I have been a qualified teacher since 2001 and in the past spent my teaching career persuading secondary school and sixth form students to learn and enjoy maths. I am now using my teaching skills in the area of infant feeding and bringing two of my passions together.
