About

ABOUT ME

Hello. I’m Rebecca, I have been a Registered midwife for 18 years with a chosen specialism in breastfeeding. I am a trained tongue tie practitioner and registered with the Association of Tongue Tie Practitioners and I am a Lactation Consultant IBCLC. Through Private Midwives Ltd, I am insured and registered with the CQC to assess and divide tongue ties in babies up to 7 months old. I offer dedicated clinic appointments and one-to-one sessions in your own home with follow-up support.

I have four beautiful children that I have breastfed and I know only too well the challenges of breastfeeding, having multiple young children and babies with tongue ties.

It is hard work but it is achievable and absolutely worth it, and I am here to help you every step of the way. I am passionate about seeing women and their families achieve a successful breastfeeding journey, learning together and growing a strong family bond.
