Why parents most commonly book with me…
Parents most commonly book with me because their baby is unhappy or not growing well or mum is in feeding-related pain. Sometimes the baby is just not settled and there is no obvious cause. “Refluxy” or “colicky” babies are a real worry for parents and the early weeks can be so hard for new families as a result.
I am a guiding hand for families who are struggling with babies who may be finding feeding challenging or who may instinctively “know” their baby is struggling generally but do not know where to turn; it may not even be feeding related.
We have enough foresight and information to now understand that some babies need more support than others. Parents do not feel heard. Unsupported journeys with new babies can contribute to families not meeting their goals which in turn can lead to higher rates of postnatal depression or anxiety. Feeding grief can last for years where support is not available.
“How do I know you can help me?”
So many of my clients told me they had been worried about booking to see yet another person because they have received so much conflicting information, they almost lost hope there was a real solution for them.
After the consultation, they feel relieved.
The main thing I offer is the reassurance that I will believe you if you tell me things are difficult. If you think there is a problem, my focus will be in helping you find the root cause and appropriate solutions. As a dedicated lactation consultant, I have you and your child’s best interests at heart. I would love to meet you be able to support you to overcome your challenges.

What I Have To Offer
Why I Do What I Do…
Because no one supported me with my breastfeeding struggles. No one knew why one of my babies couldn’t gain weight. No one knew why my premature baby couldn’t latch. No one knew about the importance of breastfeeding. No one had the skills to work out what was wrong or who to refer me to.
I breastfed my babies despite that, so imagine what is possible with skilled support.
What my clients are saying…
“I knew something was wrong with my baby, the doctors weren’t listening to me despite me being a paediatric nurse. They ignored all of my concerns, even though I kept going back. I went to see Linda and as if by magic, she fixed my baby. She made him happy and she also worked out what was causing the problem in the first place. She is an expert in all things baby, she is so gentle and caring. I’ll forever be grateful that I came across her and trusted her with my precious baby boy.”
“Linda is amazing. she came to our house in the late evening after I explained the difficulties I was having with my 3 day old. She listened to all my concerns and issues making me feel valued and respected. She has the patience of the Saint and is always available online and checking on how we are doing. Me and my husband will be forever grateful for her help and her dedication!”
“Linda is absolutely amazing. She has helped me with weaning my baby off nipple shields, helping me understand my oversupply and fast flow but what I have been amazed with the most was Linda’s ability to get rid of my babies Umbilical Hernia with only 3 sessions of Craniosacral Fascial Therapy. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and helpful person to help me during the early stages of my second breastfeeding journey. I could not recommend her more and I feel all cities need a ‘Milk & Therapy’ clinic and a Linda.”
“Would recommend Linda and feel so lucky to have her services in the city. I’d hit rock bottom with sleep deprivation 17m of breastfeeding through the night every two hours it was affecting my health and ability to function. A private sleep consultation worked so well for us I saw an improvement the first night with 2-3 wakings by day 5 only 1 wake up. It was gentle and no leaving him crying which was so important to me. Thank you Linda! 💙”
“Linda has an absolute wealth of knowledge and a wonderful way with babies and toddlers. She helped my son so much with recovery from a late-diagnosed tongue tie. He is happier and healthier because of her!”
“We struggled a lot with feeding for 3 months due to an (at the time) undiagnosed tongue tie and extremely forceful letdown. Thanks to Linda’s amazing support and breastfeeding plan, it’s become such a wonderful experience. I would probably not be breastfeeding now if it wasn’t for her help. Can’t recommend her enough!”
“Linda is amazing, I was in so much pain and on the verge of stopping breastfeeding but not emotionally ready to when she came to see us. She has turned the situation around and I’m happy feeding my boy as I write this. thank you, Linda.”
“Since our appointment, some 6 weeks ago, my son is better in his car seat (no longer cries hysterically) and is sleeping better at night and during the day (rarely waking with colic symptoms). I understand my supply better and how to help my son manage my forceful let-down.”
