FEEDING VISITS AND WORKSHOPS

Many people say that breastfeeding should be easy and come naturally, but for some mothers it doesn't.  It's important for women to reach out if they are struggling, confused or unsure.  Breastfeeding your baby can be a fulfilling experience with the right support.  I have supported over 1000 women in my local area with feeding their babies and now prepare other postnatal doulas to support mothers with their infant feeding ideals.

 

I began my training as a breastfeeding counsellor in 2011 and supported mothers in local health clinics and children's centres on a voluntary basis.  I qualified in 2013.  My passion for guiding breastfeeding mothers ensures I keep learning.  Since then, I deepen my knowledge by reading up to date and evidence based books, articles and information from online resources and attending study days with lactation consultants and breastfeeding experts - so that I keep the information I give as current and relevant as possible.  I have also broadened my knowledge on infant feeding in general, including bottle and formula feeding and can support you with optimal bottle and formula feeding.  As an infant feeding counsellor who advocates for mother's choice, I will provide a listening ear and non-judgemental support.
