Our services

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding should be pain free and comfortable for both mother and baby. We can do a full assessment to help you achieve this, finding the best positions for both of you to achieve a good milk transfer and optimal growth.

Tongue tie

Tongue tie is where the strip of skin under a baby’s tongue is shorter and tighter than usual. This can cause restriction in tongue movement and function which can cause feeding difficulties. This is what we call a tongue tie.

We can complete an assessment of tongue movement and function and then discuss how it is affecting your baby when feeding.

Parenting Support

We offer a series of workshops to give information and support to new parents available in group sessions or one to one sessions in your home.

We aim to provide parents the facts to provide you with the tools to make decisions that are right for your family every step of the way, from pregnancy to toddlers.

Rebecca Daunt

I can’t thank Amanda and Gillian enough for the support I’ve had since my son had his TT diagnosed and cut. Honestly so thankful there are people in this world to offer the knowledge and support to mothers to make their breastfeeding journey more enjoyable and less anxious. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

What a fantastic service Amanda & Gillian offer. Compared to the NHS experience we had fixing my first child’s tongue tie 4 years ago, their service is second to none.
