Breastfeeding / Chestfeeding Support

I am an NHS breastfeeding volunteer at my local hospital and I trained with the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers and I can use this knowledge to support you with breastfeeding or chestfeeding as a doula.

I can support you:

– if you are pregnant and aiming to breastfeed and would like some information about how to get breastfeeding off to the best possible start, no matter what your birth experience.

 – if you are currently breastfeeding and would like support or advice from a trained breastfeeding supporter. You may have questions about what is normal for a baby of that age, or you may like to discuss concerns regarding comfortable feeding, your supply, length/frequency of feeds, weight gain and nappy output. 

 – if you want to combination feed or introduce a bottle for expressed milk and would like advice on how to protect breastfeeding while also using breastmilk substitutes / bottles.
