My name is Shaughn Leach, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant who specialises in the support and education of breastfeeding mothers.
Whilst breastfeeding is the most natural way on earth to provide nutrition for your growing baby complications sometimes arise, potentially causing you to feel uncomfortable, frustated and even inadequate.
Your needs as a breastfeeding mother are unique and so too are the special needs of your baby.
My role is to provide you with the professional support, guidance and skills necessary to ensure that you and your baby enjoy the full benefits of breastfeeding.
I hope you find this webpage a useful source of information. If you feel you need help, please call me to make an appointment.
