There are many benefits of breastfeeding for both mother and baby and it can be a wonderful and special experience. However, sometimes breastfeeding is not smooth sailing and some mothers find that they need a little bit of extra support.
If you decide to breastfeed I am able to help you. As a midwife I have supported hundreds of new mothers with breastfeeding in those crucial first few hours after birth and also in the days and weeks following. I breastfed my first daughter for over thirteen months and my second for ten months so I understand how difficult it can be. My aim is to try and work through issues with you so that you can have the confidence and knowledge to breastfeed successfully and happily. I will give you support and evidence-based information so that you can make informed decisions that are right for you and your baby. I offer this service face to face in your home.
An initial ten minute discussion is offered free of charge so you have the opportunity to decide if my service is something that you feel will benefit you.
