Breastfeeding Support

There are different options available depending on your current needs. If you are unsure around booking please fill out contact form and I will support you to work out which option is best for you. 

Video-call consultations include a feeding assessment, verbal and written feeding guidance and information and a written plan, emailed to you following our call.

Prior to our consultation either online or face to face, I will ask you to complete a registration form with as much information as you can share to help you get the most out of your consultation .

Occasionally I recommend that parents take their child to see a professional face to face and I will try and help you to source somebody.

I use Zoom (video call) for online consultations and they usually last 60 minutes. Home visits are available, usually 60-90 mins dependant on need. Support is available in a group setting.

During our contact I will listen fully whilst you explain what has been happening in your breastfeeding journey so far. I may ask some questions about your babies feeding habits, weight gain and nappies.

I will observe you  giving your baby a feed and ask you some questions on whether you have any pain or discomfort. I may show you some positioning options and techniques. 

I aim to work in a collaborative way with families where we problem solve together and I leave you with a realistic plan and some practical solutions to help you improve you and your baby’s breastfeeding experience.

All contacts include the below:

  • A thorough feeding assessment – observing your baby feed

  • Feeding information – ‘responsive feeding’, sometimes called ‘feeding on demand’

  • The importance of ongoing skin-to-skin contact

  • Feeding cues – recognising the early communication signs 

  • Feeding positioning – tips on getting it right

  • Attachment – how to ensure a good latch

  • Reduction in pain and discomfort

  • How to identify effective feeding

  • How to improve breastfeeding

  • Expressing breast milk

  • Baby weight and growth chart analysis

  • Feeding plan (as required)

  • Mixed feeding advice (as required)

  • Electronic follow up support information
