………………………………………………….

I believe that parents deserve practical and emotional support and practical assistance so that they can recover quickly from the birth and grow in confidence in their  role . I like to help facilitate smooth and positive antenatal and postnatal experiences.

I believe in creating the best environment for thriving and I endeavour to hold that space for you and keep it as undisturbed as is possible.

I feel privileged that I can help empower parents to be confident and take control of their choices at a time in their lives when they are more likely to be feeling vulnerable and out of control. Most importantly I will encourage families to trust their own instincts as there is not a right or wrong way.

I know how hard it can be when plans don’t go to our expectations. But also how different can be this experience if we feel cared and protected.

What is an IBCLC?

International Board Certified  Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) are professionals with extensive experience and in depth knowledge in supporting breastfeeding mothers. To learn more visit  https://iblce.org/

This  qualification is at a Post graduate level  and IBCLCs have to spend many hours ,in my case 2500 of hours, supporting  breastfeeding mothers to be able to take the exam. IBCLCs have a health related background such as Medicine , Health Sciences, Nursing or Midwifery. IBCLC is the highest recognised qualification in breastfeeding.

Lactation Consultants have specialist skills to support mothers and babies with the more complex issues.  IBCLC are trained in all aspects of breastfeeding: Anatomy and physiology, Endocrinology, Biochemistry, Nutrition, Immunology, Infectious diseases, Pathology, Pharmacology, Psychology, Sociology ,Anthropology, Drugs in breast milk, Allergies and breastfeeding, Research and Ethics.

 IBCLCs  are registered and regulated by The International Board of Lactation Consultants Examiners. All the  IBCLC  are  on the IBLCE register at this link https://iblce.org/public-registry/.

They are many people who provide  breastfeeding support without holding any valid credentials. Lactation Consultants have the most extensive, up to date evidence-based knowledge.
