IBCLC Breastfeeding support

Are you struggling with breastfeeding, sore nipples or is breastfeeding not going as well as you hoped? Or is your baby not gaining weight, sustaining the latch or latching on well in the first place or do you have any other feeding concerns? I offer gentle support in the comfort of your own home. I can help with positioning and attachment, help you explore different feeding positions, give advice on combi feeding or help you work towards exclusive breastfeeding, give advice about increasing your milk supply, assess your baby for tongue tie and make a tongue tie referral, weigh your baby, offer tips on settling your baby and more. 

I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) – this credential is the highest-regarded professional qualification in breastfeeding knowledge and support, recognised all over the world.

I have over 10 years’ experience of providing breastfeeding support to countless families, as well as having breastfed my own two babies. I feel passionate about supporting you in achieving your feeding goals in a gentle and calm way. 

If you feel that you would benefit from my support, contact me today and we can chat about your needs. I can often offer same day or short notice appointments. The best way to contact me to enquire or book a home visit is to either email me or call/ send a text or a WhatsApp message (if I can’t answer the phone because I’m working clinically, leave me a message and I will contact you as soon as I can).

What clients say:

” We cannot recommend Andrea’s breastfeeding support enough, I really cannot overestimate how amazing she was! After the birth of our daughter we were discharged from the hospital still not knowing how to really breastfeed effectively or without pain and it seemed like we had a massive uphill battle to figure out how we were going to make this work. The night we got home from the hospital I was in pain and struggling to feed and my daughter was hungry and frustrated. I messaged Andrea at about midnight asking for an appointment and by 10am the following morning Andrea was in my home, swooping in like superwoman in a cape! She helped my daughter latch for the first time, pain free and taught me how to properly feed and latch her. Andrea also identified a possible tongue tie and helped us to book a appointment with a specialist to have this looked at (this was also a massive help!). We are so grateful to Andrea for her support and expertise, but also for how empathic, encouraging and compassionate she was – which was very much needed at 2 days postpartum! Booking a breastfeeding support session was honestly the best investment we could have made in our daughter and we are just so grateful to Andrea for her support!

” Andrea visited me at home for a 1:1 feeding support session. She made me feel so at ease and relaxed and the advice she gave was so personal and helpful! She took the time to talk through things with me and she really listened to my worries and questions. I thought it was going to be impossible to get my baby to latch as she was 5 weeks old but Andrea showed me that this was definitely possible! Thank you so much Andrea!xxx “

” Absolutely first class support. Truly wonderful experience with Andrea. I would always recommend her to any new parents who need help with nursing, so nice to have the help in your own home, 1 to 1. It’s a calm, peaceful and just more natural experience. Andrea had our son, who wouldn’t previously latch or suck, feeding from mummy within the first session so definitely money well spent to get some amazing help with no interruption. Thank you so much! “
