I am genuine, respectful, optimistic and offer empathy to all my families. I have a practical, no fuss approach, keeping it simple focusing on your needs and what you’re aiming to achieve. When helping you establish or maintain breastfeeding I use a hands-off approach, with lots of encouragement and reassurance. This ensures when I leave, you have confidence and can continue to practice what feels right for you. I find home visits offer flexibility to work in with your busy day and ensure the resources you already have become the tools we work with.
I am pleased to say most of my clients have found one visit is all they need. Every parent and baby is important to me so follow up support in the days or weeks after my visit via phone call or text forms part of my service.
