This service is particularly suited to women with complex medical needs and women with a history of breastfeeding challenges.
An initial phone consultation to understand your particular situation.
A tailored session of two hours for you and your supporters in your own home.

Evidence based information and practical guidance to ensure you and your baby have the best start to your breastfeeding journey.
Top troubleshooting tips and skills including excellent clear resources for the whole family to assess how things are going.
