Breastfeeding Support

Precious Beginnings is passionate about offering women (and their families) support to breastfeed their baby for as long as they choose.

Breastfeeding has many benefits for both women and babies including protecting babies from infections, being nutritionally perfect regardless of the age of the baby, reducing the mother’s risk of breast and

ovarian cancers, helping mother’s lose their pregnancy weight and being completely free to name but a few!

Support to establish and maintain breastfeeding can help the breastfeeding relationship to continue for as long as families wish it to.

 

Louise has over 10 years experience offering breastfeeding support in a variety of contexts. She is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and uses the experience and skills to support families to overcome difficulties with infant feeding. Get in touch for advice or more information.

Services Precious Beginnings can offer prior to accreditation include:

Antenatal home visit - £50
(£60 after 6pm or on a weekend)

Do you want to know more about breastfeeding your baby before they arrive?  Research shows parents who receive information and support before their baby arrives are more likely to remember the information and therefore be able to use it.  Louise can come to your home and give you all the information you need to prepare you for breastfeeding your baby.  This visit usually lasts around 90 minutes.

Support after birth - £65
(£80 after 6pm or on a weekend)

This visit is specifically tailored to you and your new baby to help you establish and maintain breastfeeding.  It is ideal in the first 2 weeks but can be offered later if needed.  This visit is usually up to 2 hours long.

Follow-up visit - £50
(£60 after 6pm)

Louise can visit you again to see how breastfeeding is going, offer further support and listen to any concerns you may have.  This visit is usually around 90 minutes long.

Additional hours - £40
(£50 if after 6pm or on a weekend)

If you would like longer visits than the packages discussed, just ask.  There is a discounted rate for extra hours.

Skype information (Per 30 mintues) -
£20 (£25 after 6pm or on a weekend)

Sometimes all you need is a little reassurance.  Louise is able to give support via Skype (or phone if needed).  She will always be honest if she feels you would be better suited to a home visit or finding help local to where you live.

Antenatal Breastfeeding Workshop - £25 per couple

Precious Beginnings is also able to offer an Antenatal Breastfeeding Workshop which can help prepare parents for the experience of breastfeeding and help them understand how to overcome any challenges they face including where to get appropriate support.  The course is £25 per couple for 2 hours and includes refreshments.
