Lisa Harris

BSc (Hons) Osteopathy, PG Cert Specialist Paediatrics, Post Graduate Training Pre and Postnatal care, Cranial Osteopathy, and Infant Feeding Coach

Services: Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Paediatric Osteopathy, Infant Feeding Support

I am passionate about supporting the whole family. If the baby is healthy, feeding well and settled, then the family are happy and relaxed. I trained as an infant feeding coach as so many families were struggling during the pandemic. Usual services were and still are stretched, family, friends and peer support groups were not available. It was a gap in my knowledge, hands on treatment for mum and baby can help with structural issues. Positioning and feeding support are often also needed and often all that is needed.

Laura Greenwood

BSc Hons. Ost. D.O. Infant Feeding Coach

Services: Osteopathy for pregnancy and postpartum, Infant Feeding Support, Kinesiology taping for baby bump support, Laser therapy for C-section scars, C-section scar work

I’m Laura and I’m an Osteopath and Infant Feeding Coach. I love treating ladies throughout their pregnancy and continuing with their postpartum care and now I’m able to offer feeding support which it’s the perfect combination to provide all round care. I had different experiences with breastfeeding my 3 young children with varying advice which lead me to becoming an IFC so that I can provide the best prenatal advice and help support those parents who are having difficulties with feeding their baby. I also have excellent connections for those who I feel need referring to other specialists. I look forward to meeting you and your baby and helping you on your journey!

Silva Schuldt

BSc (Hons) Ost Med (Batchelor degree – Osteopathic Medicine), DO (Diploma – Osteopathy), ND (Diploma – Naturopathy), PgCert SPOP (Postgrad. Certificate – Specialist Paediatric Osteopathic Practice), Infant Feeding Coach

Services: I provide osteopathy for patients of all ages from newborn babies to the elderly, including women throughout their pregnancy, as well as Infant Feeding Support.

I am a very experienced paediatric osteopath. Since graduating in 1999, I have completed masters-level studies in specialist osteopathy for babies and children. I treat everyone, from newborn babies to older generations, but babies are my favourite patients.

Often, part of the presenting issues when treating babies are symptoms of reflux, colic, being unsettled, or windy. These symptoms are often caused by problems with positioning and latching on the breast, leading to difficulties for the baby to transfer milk effectively (which could affect weight gain), gulping air while suckling (leading to a “windy” baby), and lots of crying/being unsettled due to abdominal discomfort. Bottle feeding formula or breastmilk too quickly or in too large a quantity can cause similar issues.

As an Infant Feeding Coach, I can help you as new parents navigate your feeding journey by teaching you how to hand-express colostrum antenatally, helping you establish breastfeeding your newborn, tweaking the positioning of your baby for a better latch and a more comfortable feed, and teaching you how to pace-feed your baby should you decide to bottle feed.

Depending on your needs, feeding advice can be given as part of an osteopathic treatment or as dedicated stand-alone sessions.

Having the right support to heal both physically and emotionally is so important and since has ing had her son Laurene has dedicated her yoga teaching and postnatal work to providing that support for new parents.

In 2020 Gemma had her second child and realised quite quickly how important it is to have the correct feeding support available. It was after this that Gemma decided to train as an Infant Feeding Coach to enable her to support families with their feeding journeys alongside her osteopathic care.

Hello, I’ve always been interested in health and wellbeing. Having gained an Osteopathy degree, i continued at post graduate level training in Cranial Osteopathy at the Sutherland Cranial College in London, and Biodynamic Osteopathy in Finland, where I also expanded my knowledge in Obstetrics and Paediatrics.

Having worked in a number of paediatric clinics, often working closely with midwives, health visitors and lactation consultants, I wanted to help nursing mothers and infants with latching difficulties, and this is why I trained to become an Fedant Infant Feeding Coach. I am passionate about giving parents evidence based techniques and tips, to empower parents to choose the optimal way, they want to feed their baby, giving positive assistance and encouragement.

It all started with me becoming a Maternity Care Assistant in Brighton in 2009. I discovered my passion for infant feeding support right then and there. This developed into a dream of wanting to provide bespoke support to new and growing families in their postnatal period. Becoming a mother myself, having struggled with breastfeeding and the postnatal period in general just cemented my urge to support families postnatally.

I am incredibly lucky to have fulfilled this dream by becoming a Postnatal Doula providing a full postnatal support service or stand alone infant feeding support when you need it most.  However I am also able to provide Postnatal support, where I am able to observe the whole picture and give more than just Infant feeding support, I can support you when your baby and you are ready.
