Working Together

We have been working together supporting breastfeeding mothers since 2006.
This has been both in the NHS and in the voluntary sector.

We are both passionate about our role and aim to support mothers and babies to achieve their breastfeeding goals.

Registered Midwife and Tongue tie Practitioner
International Board Certified Lactation consultant

I am a registered midwife and worked at City Hospitals Sunderland for 37 years. In 2009 I became the lead midwife for infant feeding. In 2014 I trained to become a specialist tongue tie practitioner and set up the NHS service in Sunderland. To date I have performed over 5000 tongue tie procedures.

Breastfeeding has always been my passion and I have developed and led the team of maternity assistants to provide support for families at the beginning of their breastfeeding journey.

In 2015 I was responsible for Sunderland maternity unit achieving UNICEF baby friendly accreditation. In 2018 I passed the examination to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
