I am a qualified Nurse and Health Visitor and I have been working with families for over fifteen years. In 2018 I fulfilled my lifelong ambition and qualified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consult (IBCLC). I live in Chester, Cheshire with my husband and my three boys. Being the mother of three boys and having Labradors too means we spend a lot of time outdoors!
As well as being a Lactation Consultant, I am qualified to help parents recognise the unique skills their baby has been born with (Neonatal Behavioural Observation), positive parenting techniques (Solihull Approach) and developmental assessments (Ages and Stages Questionnaires).
I run antenatal infant feeding workshops, community breastfeeding support groups, provide one to one support for mothers with complex breastfeeding challenges and train breastfeeding peer supporters and NHS health professionals. I enjoy organising parenting events in the community and volunteer for The National Childbirth Trust (NCT).
I work with families holistically and will support you on your
journey from pregnancy to parenthood. I am there for the
whole family unit and I will work in partnership with you to
help you reach your breastfeeding goals. I feel that although
breastfeeding may be natural, it's a skill that you and your baby
learn together, and it can take some practice. With the right
support you will achieve your goals!
