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.
