My passion is in relation to supporting mum’s and babies to have a stress-free breast-feeding experience. As part of my work as an IBCLC and Specialist Community Practitioner (Health Visitor) I have worked with NHS web pages to improve information on infant feeding to support parents in the early days, and have worked with the baby centre website as an expert panellist to support parents with baby health matters.
I am a Fellow of the Institute of Health Visiting (FiHV). Fellows are health visitors with exceptional leadership qualities delivering excellence in practice. They are known as professionals who ‘push the boundaries’, have an entrepreneurial spirit and have made a real difference to the health outcomes of children, families and communities. Whilst many are from clinical practice, some also come from research and education.
