Breastfeeding Support

Breastfeeding Support - Sussex, South East

Breastfeeding help, when you need it the most.

Breastfeeding can instinctive for baby but is often something that women need to learn. Getting off to a good start is essential.

Having a breastfeeding consultation during pregnancy or straight after your baby is born is ideal and will enable you to prepare for a rewarding and empowering relationship with your new baby.

But if like most of us, you wanted to wait and see if you and your baby could do it on your own and now perhaps are experiencing difficulties and need a little extra support, I can help you.

You can come and see me in my weekly clinic, or if you can’t get to me I can visit you at home, to carry out a thorough feeding assessment.  I will help you with your feeding and work with you to formulate a plan.  You will have plenty of time to discuss any feeding concerns you may have and by the time you leave you will be feeding more confident feeding and caring for your new baby, helping you to gain more satisfaction from your breastfeeding experience.

--- Di is the 'yoda' of all things to do with breastfeeding and babies. Her knowledge and guidance was fantastic. Her clear, instructive and patient approach was just what I needed to help me position my baby correctly. She filled me with so much positivity and energy. It was the best phone call I made!

--- Dee has been an amazing help for me and my baby girl. After 4 weeks of struggle to breastfeed Dee showed us how to do it correctly and most importantly comfortably. She was quick to respond to my cry of help and I don't know if I would have continued to breastfeed without her help and guidance. Now the feeding is comfortable, pain free and I am even considering to feed in public which I dreaded before. I would recommend Dee of anyone who struggles and finds breastfeeding hard and painful.

--- ``I am so pleased I was recommended Dee for the difficulties we'd been having with feeding our seven week old baby. He had been struggling to gain enough weight due to a vicious cycle between low milk supply and long, inefficient feeds. Having been put on an intense pumping plan, I had lost sight of focusing on the quality of the breastfeeding itself. Within minutes of arriving at Dee's, she had him giving the best feed since the day he was born, even on my less favoured side. Within half the time as usual, he was satiated and then spent 45 minutes chirpy and smiling at us both. Since then, I have felt more confident with his latch and positioning, resulting in easier feeding and much less stress for us both. He is now gaining weight well. I would thoroughly recommend an appointment with Dee as early as possible in anyone's breastfeeding journey.``

--- Dee came highly recommended from a friend and she helped me when I hit a low point with my breastfeeding/sleeping around 4 months. I wanted to make sure I was doing it right so I could get back on track. She's very personable, easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable and at ease. She had a lot of good advice, even about non-breastfeeding related issues such as napping, and was a big help to me and my babies. I would happily recommend Dee to anyone who needs some support in the early days or even later on when, like me, things seem to have gone a little off track.
