Follow-up Breastfeeding
Support Consultation

£100 (£90 online)

Tongue-tie
Assessment / Rehabilitation

(up to 30m)
£75
With modern changes to diet and supplement recommendations during pregnancy, tongue ties are more common than ever. I can assess and diagnose a tongue tie, plus help you to understand (through an assessment tool) if the impact of your baby’s oral tethers can be mitigated with positioning, or if the tethers are symptomatic enough to require an appointment with a specialist for. If the latter applies I can refer accordingly. I’m also familiar with the post-frenectomy (tongue tie division) exercises and can both perform, guide, and teach these exercises to ensure a speedy and safe recovery.

What does IBCLC stand for?

An IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) qualification is awarded to an individual that has demonstrated both knowledge and practical skills in breastfeeding.

Learn more

Frequently asked questions

The most important thing you should be aware of is to look for an IBCLC qualification. There is no other certification that comes close to this.  Here you can get more information about exactly what it entails.  I’d also recommend considering an independent IBCLC (outside of a hospital or clinic base) for a more personal and adaptable service.  You will find no restrictions on appointment times, and always have access to the same lactation consultant to help you along your breastfeeding journey.

The difference is determined by the training. It’s important to know that related titles such as: Breastfeeding Expert, Breastfeeding Specialist, Lactation Expert, etc, can be used freely without holding any specific qualification, of which sometimes are just volunteer mothers that have personal experience in breastfeeding. Whereas IBCLC have been trained holistically in all disciplines related to breastfeeding, and have demonstrated direct care for nursing mothers and babies. Plus follow a Code of Professional Conduct Principles. For further information you can visit https://iblce.org/

Lactation consultants offer peace of mind during a potentially stressful time by giving advice, helping to troubleshoot breastfeeding problems and give you reassurance. Whether you are a new mother or a seasoned pro, having experts on your side while breastfeeding your little one is one of the most valuable things you can do.

Absolutely! Regardless of if you desire to breastfeed, to expressed your milk and give it to your baby in a bottle, or to give the baby formula, I am here to support you.  I will help you to reach your feeding goals and show you the best bottle-feeding methods to ensure your baby is fed in the most effective way. 

A common worry among new mothers with small breast is whether or not they will be able to breastfeed. It is rare for a mother to be physically unable to breastfeed and breast size is irrelevant when it comes to how much milk you will produce. A mother with small breasts might have just as much milk supply as mother with large breasts. Hormonal changes during pregnancy ensures that your breast tissue produces enough breast milk for your baby.
