Hello there!

I am lactation consultant with 10 years experience supporting families with all sorts of feeding concerns, and a fellow mother to two children who are 10 and 8 years old. I have personal experience of nursing after a c-section, through tongue tie, pregnancy, tandem nursing and many other challenges.

Although breastfeeding may not have always been easy, it was worth it! I believe there is always a solution to a breastfeeding problem no matter how big or small.

Skilled in supporting mothers from before their baby is born through to weaning from the breast, for the past few years I have worked as a breastfeeding specialist for PSBreastfeeding CIC as part of community breastfeeding support within children’s centres, and then for an NHS health visiting service in Kent.  In August 2020 my family and I made the move back to Cornwall. Here I offer breastfeeding support to local and visiting families. 

I have extensive training and experience in the detection, referral and aftercare of babies with tongue tie. In addition to my lactation specific qualifications, I am also a baby massage therapist and have attended a course on mindfulness in breastfeeding. I will always bring these skills to your breastfeeding support when appropriate. I am also trained in basic life support for children and adults.I have my own insurance with Well-being Insurance and carry an up to date enhanced DBS. Client safety and well being is important to me. I want you to feel safe and nurtured throughout our time together.

All services are tailored to meet the individual needs of the families I work with.

Over many years I have supported hundreds of families to meet their breastfeeding goals. I am excited to now be able to offer private breastfeeding classes and support visits, and love getting to meet so many different families and be a part of their journeys.

    I asked at post birth checks if my son had a tongue tie, & was told he did & was given details to get it checked & referred for a cut. I contacted Louise a few days later thinking it can’t be too bad, as they weren’t too worried in hospital. Louise said to pop along to a bf group where it was discovered he had a 100% tie. I actually paid to have it cut privately because he was barely getting any milk. 7 weeks later, he was struggling to feed again so I had him seen by someon… See more

    The only person who looked in my daughters mouth after near 3 months of static weight gain and trying everything under the sun to improve my supply and get baby to put on weight. She made me realise it wasn’t my fault! A really lovely lady who I will be calling on when number 2 arriveds in June!

    Although I was determined to breastfeed my daughter, without Louise’s help and support I doubt very much I would have managed to feed for as long as I did. Talking to her was so helpful and encouraging.

    I have known Louise for almost 4 years. She was there for me through my first breastfeeding journey, even though it was smooth the emotional support and helpful advice kept us feeding until my daughter was one. I have had a more difficult experience with my son and Louise was there within the first week and was her usual amazing self. Without her I wouldn’t still be feeding now at 16 months. She’s an inspiration, so much so that I trained to be a breastfeeding peer supporter.

    Louise is amazing, after checking with every health professional my daughter was seen by it was only when we met Louise that she recognised her tongue tie and we got the help we needed. Everyone else had said she was fine and didn’t have one. Louise was so supportive to me, I cannot recommend her enough. If I ever need support again I wouldn’t hesitate to find Louise.

    Louise is amazing. She has saved me several times over a period of 3 years. Always able to answer my questions and offer practical solutions. It’s rare to find someone so passionate about their career so I know I am incredibly lucky to have found her when I needed her.

    Louise, gave me amazing support with my first child, after being readmitted to hospital at 36 hours old, and being discharged not knowing what his issues were. We visited Louise the day after and she diagnosed a TT and high palate. Her support was amazing, I was about to BF whilst waiting for the TT to be snipped and happily BF for 11 months. When my second child was born Louise visited me at home when he was less 24 hours old and again diagnosed a horrendous TT, and he had it snipped when he was 4 days old. This was over a year ago and we are still going strong. I would highly recommend Louise for all BF support, her knowledge is second to non, she is friendly and supportive. Thank you so much �

    Louise is amazing! I struggled to bf my baby girl and despite lots of help from the midwifes, I quickly relied on nipple shields. Louise taught me to get my daughter to latch correctly without the shields and since then I have been enjoying bf so much more (just like I had hoped for)! The two hour time slot was great as it provided so much time to practice my feeding with support and ensure that I would be able to continue doing so after my visit. Not only was Louise extremely knowledgeable, she was also so calming and reassuring. I would 100% recommend.
