Creating space for empowerment and support

Mother and Baby

Who are we?

We are both breastfeeding counsellors, certified breastfeeding specialists and  IBCLCs. We cover the North Wales region and for virtual consults, further afield.

We strive to support you in a non-judgemental, professional and caring manner with ongoing support where needed, to reach your breastfeeding goal, whatever your family unit may look like.

We have been supporting breastfeeding families since 2011, and Karen is a Welsh speaker so support can be provided in Welsh.

Being mums we can empathise wholly with the frustrations and difficulties that come with babyhood. 

We want all parents to feel supported and empowered on their journeys, feeling better when we leave than when we arrive.


Consultation Services

Your breastfeeding goal is of upmost importance to us, and we strive for you to feel empowered and supported.

We will endeavour to make you feel confident in your body and your baby.

You will have 14 days of free written (email) support and a care plan tailored specifically to your particular circumstances that you feel comfortable with. Find out more below.

Home Consultation (Virtual)

This is for anyone looking for support and extra help in dealing with any challenges and difficulties. Let’s work together in order to find a wellness approach that works for you and your family.  You will have up to an hour and a half exclusive time to work through any issues and leave with a care plan.  This consult will take place over a secure online platform.
