International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
Tongue tie practitioner
I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and tongue tie practitioner, offering affordable, compassionate and professional infant feeding guidance, breastfeeding support and tongue tie assessment / division for you and your baby in Beds, Herts and Bucks.
I began my career as an adult nurse, before moving into neonatal nursing 15 years ago, and later completing the specialist Neonatal Intensive Care qualification. After moving from London to live in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, I became a Senior Sister as well as Infant Feeding lead nurse for the neonatal unit. I am mother to two wonderful girls, both of whom were breastfed despite challenges.
I qualified as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2018, and have trained at Wolverhampton University and Russells Hall Hospital as a tongue tie practitioner.
I am a member of the Lactation Consultants Great Britain (LCGB), the International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA) and the Association of Tongue Tie Practitioners (ATP).
I understand that there is no such thing as “one solution fits all” in the world of breastfeeding, and take great pride in providing clients with high quality, evidence-based lactation and breastfeeding care and support.
Tongue tie assessment and release can be performed as part of a home visit consultation, or in my private clinics which are in Milton Keynes (Blackberry Clinic) and Leighton Buzzard (Leighton Road Surgery). I am happy to travel within the wider area (Leighton Buzzard, Aylesbury, Luton, Hemel Hempstead, Tring, St Albans, Watford, Buckingham and surrounding areas in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire) for breastfeeding consultations and tongue tie assessment and division.
