Deb has been an incredible help to us. Deb came to see us when my baby was 6 days old. We had had a difficult time... with feeding after discovering they were severely tongue tied and even though we had had a Frenulotomy 2 days prior, I still felt I couldn't get baby to latch properly and couldn't find the right positions to make it not hurt me.Deb took time to talk to me and my husband; hearing my birth story, tongue tie issues and observed how I was currently feeding. She gave hands on and visual support with a knitted aid (a knitted breast, very cute) to help us understand how it all worked and showed us different techniques and positions to encourage baby to latch more comfortably.On top of her knowledge being incredible, she was just the loveliest person. I instantly felt comfortable with her and felt heard. I would highly recommend a consultation with her if you were having any difficulty with feeding. It is a learning curve for both my son and for myself, but the consultation gave me more confidence to learn together.Thanks so much Deb xxread more

Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better service. Debbie came in like the fairy godmother she is, answered all of... my breastfeeding questions, solved my problems, gave me clear advice and I now feel like my issues are fixed.I breastfed my firstborn until he was 2yo so you’d think I’d know what I was doing but I definitely needed Debbie’s support and guidance. After just one hour with her I have so much more confidence and feel I can start enjoying my breastfeeding journey with my 7 week old! If that’s not worth the money then I don’t know what is!read more

Deborah is kind and genuine. She has a lovely manner and is very knowledgeable. I would have no hesitation in... recommending her to my family and friends. If it wasn't for Deb, I wouldn't have gotten my son's tongue tie assessed and divided today! Thanks again..read more

We got in touch with Deb shortly after our daughter was born (our 1st child), as my wife was having issues breast... feeding. We were getting in a bit of a panic but Deb very quickly responded and managed to squeeze us in the next morning.Deb was brilliant, full of great advice and support. She took time to understand us and our daughter, what we wanted to achieve, and put our minds at rest with regards some concerns we had! After the appointment we received detailed notes from Deb outlining everything we’d discussed so we had a record we could refer back to.We achieved our goals and I’d highly recommend Deb to anyone trying to breastfeed.read more

Deb has helped me both during the birth of my first, after with getting her on the breast in recovery and throughout my... breastfeeding journey with her. After I had my twins and I was in TC, the staff didn’t have the knowledge or time to help me. I knew just who to call... Deb! She came and saw me on the Ward and we just spoke and spoke. She is so calm. She turned me from a panicking mess into a confident tandem feeder! That night my twin with the feeding issues fed perfectly from the breast with the information I learned from Deb and the confidence that she gave me. I’m still feeding the twins now at 18 months and without debs support along the way I doubt I’d have gotten this far! I thoroughly recommend Deb for all birth and lactation journeys!xread more
