A private tongue tie practitioner and midwife offering tongue tie separation, one-to-one breastfeeding support and postnatal care to Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire. Based in Basingstoke
My mission is to equip you on your breastfeeding journey to be a calm, confident parent, trusting your own instincts and those of your baby. I want you to have a positive beginning to your parenting journey that you can remember with joy.
Hello. I’m Rebecca, I have been a Registered midwife for 17 years with a chosen specialism in breastfeeding. I am a trained tongue tie practitioner and registered with the Association of Tongue Tie Practitioners. Through Private Midwives Ltd, I am insured and registered with the CQC to assess and divide tongue ties in babies up to 6 months old. I offer 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.
