When I had my first born 4 years ago I didn't know breast feeding would bring me to where I am today. I have become passionate about supporting mothers and their families in their own breast feeding journey after seeing too many Mum's struggle and not know where to go for help. This year I have also finished my La Leche League Leadership training. As a Mum to 2 I have experienced poor latch, lip tie, slow weight gain, starting solids, feeding while pregnant and am currently still feeding a 2 year old. Without support from others I know I wouldn't have got through some stages and this motivates me to pass knowledge and experience on to help other Mum's.
