Hello, I’m Lettie and I help new mothers grow more confident feeding their babies. Early motherhood is a beautiful but also overwhelming time, and many women find themselves wishing they had more support to help them navigate feeding their babies and keeping them well and happy in those early, vulnerable days—as well as finding ways to look after themselves (a piece of the puzzle that mothers often neglect).

As an experienced NHS nurse I take a relaxed and practical approach, troubleshooting breastfeeding issues and empowering you to achieve whatever feeding ambitions you might have.

If you’d like support to help you and your baby flourish together, don’t hesitate to get in touch: I can visit you in your own home, across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire and sometimes further afield.

How I can help:

Antenatal breastfeeding support session:

Whether you’re a first time parent or a fourth, whether you’ve had a tricky time feeding with previous children, have a chronic health condition, concerns about establishing a ‘good supply’, or you just want to be more clued up about feeding choices before your baby arrives—I can help prepare you to get off to a good start in anticipation of your new baby’s arrival.

Breastfeeding troubleshooting session:

During a troubleshooting session we can assess how feeding and postnatal life has gone so far, and find solutions to any struggles you’ve been having.

I’ll help you:

  • Find the most comfortable position for you and your baby to feed
  • Get a good latch
  • Heal sore, cracked or bleeding nipples
  • Take care of blocked ducts and mastitis
  • Address any concerns regarding your supply
  • Find ways to calm an unsettled baby
  • Connect with appropriate services to address other issues you may be experiencing
  • Figure out which nursing accessories (e.g. a decent pillow, a well-fitting breast pump, potions and lotions) could help you, rather than wasting your money on things that don’t really work.

“Lettie has been such an amazing support for me and my son in recent weeks. Having a baby during an international pandemic meant getting to any support classes impossible leaving me feeling very isolated and unsure about if I was doing things “right” with a tongue tied baby. Lettie offering online consultations was a life saver. She gave me the most amazing guidance and support that was easy to understand and implement. Her help made me feel so much more confident in my abilities as a new mum and very positive about our future breastfeeding ongoing. I cannot thank and recommend her enough.” Florence

“My son is nearly 5 months and I am so happy I reached out to Lettie for support.  When I first spoke to Lettie I was struggling to latch my baby, dreading every feed, and about to give up.  Thanks to her help and guidance feeding became much easier, and now feels like the most natural thing in the world. Lettie has a depth of knowledge and an arsenal of tips, but most of all her warm and friendly approach means her help feels like a warm blanket just when you need it most.” Annie

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if I could be helpful to you and your family!
