About me: I am a loving, playful mum to 3 beautiful children aged 8, 6 and 2. I am a  Breastfeeding Counsellor and have been for 4 years, I am also a passionate, supportive  IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) since 2011.  I have written numerous breastfeeding and parenting articles for various websites including MUMZONE.

My Approach

My children sparked my passion for breastfeeding and my work as a counsellor has driven me to find different ways to educate mums and dads about breastfeeding while they are awaiting the arrival of their precious baby and supporting them as a Lactation Consultant once baby arrives.

I truly believe in empowering mums no matter how they choose to feed and in providing mums with the information they need to make feeding decisions.  I am heartbroken when I meet a mum who has been told to wean, top their baby up with formula or whose efforts to breastfeed have been belittled by a health professional (or anyone) as this can damage their breastfeeding relationship, their confidence and create much guilt, which many mums carry for years to come.

I look at each family unit with fresh eyes and take a holistic approach, as we are all different, with different goals, pressures, lifestyles, support systems and beliefs.
