Below are the most common services that I provide.

I love talking babies so please feel free to reach out using the contact form or make an appointment.
You are preparing for the birth of your baby, why not prepare for breastfeeding your newborn?
I can offer face to face consultations in the comfort of your own home for both you and your support person. Here I’ll take you through techniques and clarify information about breastfeeding your newborn and preparing for the birth of your baby.
Having a newborn baby is both wonderful and overwhelming at the same time. I can help normalise newborn behaviour and help you identify your baby’s cues for both feeding and sleep.
I offer one-on-one consultation in the comfort of your own home, watching your baby’s behaviour and develop a personalised plan to support you.
In the privacy and comfort of your own home, I collect a full history of your concerns, assess your feeding, discuss your experiences and challenges with breastfeeding. I will discuss your feeding goals and create a plan for you to achieve them.
Tongue tie is the leading reason why women cease breastfeeding early as the pain and discomfort from a baby with tongue tie becomes unbearable. Having had personal experience with this, I understand it is often dismissed or overlooked, with little consideration for the issues that can arise later in life. I can provide an independent tongue tie assessment and management plan for you.
Most consultations are no more than 2 hours
