Breastfeeding & Lactation support
As well as being a babywearing/carrying consultant, I am also a trained breastfeeding peer supporter. I trained with the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers.
I am now a co-director of Basildon and Thurrock BRAS CIC (baby feeding, relaxation, assurance and slings)
We have a private Facebook group where we provide support and information to help you on your feeding journey. Click here to come and join us.
We can do video calls with you, or we can see you face to face. Our support groups are on Mondays in Basildon and Fridays in Noak Bridge. Book those here. You can also just come along for the social side, you don't need to come for support. All partners, support persons and siblings are welcome.
We also offer free monthly online presentations to prepare you for your upcoming feeding journey. These last about an hour and we go through all the basics you'll need to know before baby arrives, they'll help you to feel more confident and prepared. Partners and support persons are welcome to join too.
Contact the BRAS page via DM to get the zoom link.
