It is so important that the Breastfeeding Support

you receive is given by a qualified & experienced

Breastfeeding specialist

who not only undertakes regular continued & updated training but is also connected

to a network of other Breastfeeding

specialists & regularly involved in a community

of supporting breastfeeding mothers.

Unfortunately not all GP's Paediatricians or Midwives have specific training in Lactation & Breastfeeding support, meaning new mothers are given a lot of conflicting & outdated information.

To make sure you are receiving the right support, you can find out who the different

types of Breastfeeding Specialists are here

I have given details of my training & many years of experience below & compared to the above link

you can see that I have undertaken 3 of the 4 specialist roles, National Childbirth Trust (NCT) 

Peer Supporter, NHS Unicef Trained Peer Supporter & NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor. (BFC).

I am currently working towards the 4th (IBCLC). This is the gold standard in Breastfeeding Support & Training & includes specialist extensive training

& strict criteria to sit the exam.

It means once qualified an IBCLC is already

highly experienced in supporting mothers with

 complex problems such as tongue-tie

 as well as common issues.  

You can read more about IBCLC's here.


My Breastfeeding support experience spans 29 years, first as an NCT Peer Supporter then as an NCT BFC both at Central London NHS & Private Maternity Hospitals. 


 I have also supported mothers in my roles as a Private Nanny & Maternity Nurse, a Registered 

Childminder & as an NHS Peer Support volunteer in Children Centre's & in my local community.​

Alongside my BFC training, I've regularly updated my BFC knowledge with further training from the NCT & continued professional development within

 the NHS. ​My Doula Training Course also included an in-depth Breastfeeding Support Module.

I am insured & to ensure I am always giving quality support I work alongside (IBCLC) Lactation Consultants & diligently use credible sources for the latest up to date evidence-based

 Breastfeeding information. I regularly attend Breastfeeding Seminars, Conferences Study

Days for Continued Professional Development.​

I always follow UNICEF,  World Health OrganisationNational Institute for Health Care & Excellence guidelines, The Baby-Friendly

 Initiative  & Doula UK Policies.
