My name is Lucy.


I’m an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and a breastfeeding counsellor. I’m also a published author and an international speaker on the topic of relactation.

I’m a Mum to 2 boys, and I overcame challenges to breastfeed them both. I understand the feelings difficulties can bring up, and I’m here to help.

I am trained to listen to your story and to work with you as you overcome the challenges you are facing, whether they are common or complex.

You might have ‘normal’ challenges, like cluster feeding, sleep, weaning, mastitis.

You might have some of the more complicated challenges, like:

  • Low milk supply
  • Breastfeeding after breast surgery
  • Breastfeeding a premature or sick baby
  • Slow weight gain
  • Relactation
  • Exclusive  pumping
  • Induced lactation
  • Breast abscess
  • Ongoing breast or nipple pain
  • A newborn who can’t latch

I can help. 

A lactation consultation isn’t the same as most other breastfeeding support. It’s very in depth and includes us talking at some length about the pregnancy, birth, and how things were in the hours and days after baby was born. As an IBCLC I don;t simply “Fix” the presenting problem – I work with you to unpick the underlying causes, and then help you to come up with a clear plan to get to where you want to be.
