Families who book in for our pregnancy packages have a more holistic one to one experience and are able to really feel like they aren't alone in the journey of breastfeeding.
Please contact us in advance. Many mothers will set their first session around 34 weeks gestation. If this is not your first you may want to book in a little later but taking time to go over your last breastfeeding journey can be very helpful to set in place the changes that might happen with this baby.
We look forward to meeting you on this exciting journey.
Visits come on a first come first serve basis, but I hope to book families in as quickly as possible. There is a 10% extra charge for any weekend and bank holidays. Pregnancy packages must be paid in full on booking. Cash and bank transfer is accepted. services can be changed to best suit you and your babies needs if required. services for returning to work and weaning from breastfeeding are also offered.
