MEET THE TEAM
Jasmine Kelly IBCLE
Hi My names Jasmine and I am a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I have been working with families and babies for over 10 years. I set up little Latchers in 2019 to further support more families with breastfeeding in and around Essex. I also work as a neonatal intensive care nurse in the NHS, I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in general nursing and further Post Graduate Qualifications as a Specialist Neonatal Nurse. I have always had an interest in infant feeding and I feel passionately that all families should have the opportunity to breastfeed.
I am registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council and a membership with LGCB with a fully certified insurance with Holistic Insurance. In order to keep my knowledge up to date and offer the best evidence based care, I attend a variety of annual conferences including ‘Lactation Consultants of Great Britain’ and ‘UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative conference’ 'tongue tie synopsis' 'Association of breastfeeding mothers'. I collaborate with Happy parents Happy Baby who provide informed evidenced base antenatal classes in London and Essex. Where I meet expectant parents and educate surrounding infant feeding and breastfeeding.
At Little Latchers we aim to provide you with unbiased evidenced based information to help you to make an informed choice about how to feed your baby. As a NICU nurse, I've learned that success looks different for every family. As an IBCLC, I am here to explore all options and provide support from common breastfeeding issues through to the complex cases.
My passion is supporting families to achieve their personal feeding goals.
Hi My names Gemma. I am a mummy to two little girls. I have been a Neonatal intensive care nurse for 10 years and have worked passionately with breastfeeding families in this time. I am finishing my IBCLC training at present and am a fully qualified baby massage practitioner.
I am registered with the nursing and midwifery council and a member of the association of breastfeeding mothers. In my role as a neonatal nurse I have implemented the unicef baby friendly standards in my local hospital.
I have worked alongside Jasmine in our current neonatal role for over 6 years and in breastfeeding support for the last year.
working together to provide evidenced based breastfeeding support. I look forward to meeting with you in person soon enough.
