Jill Shepherd IBCLC
I am a Lactation Consultant and Breastfeeding Counsellor. I am knowledgeable, qualified, experienced, kind and compassionate. I can visit you in your home to offer breastfeeding information and support, tailored to you and your baby’s needs.
Breastfeeding seems to stimulate very different points of view, provoke unsolicited advice and is sometimes cloaked in inaccurate, unhelpful myths which can undermine your efforts to breastfeed your baby and your confidence in breastfeeding itself. I can help you discover for yourself how you feel about information you’ve been given, what you want to do for yourself and your baby, and can help you grow your confidence in your ability to breastfeed your baby.
I have studied lactation and practiced breastfeeding support for more than 14 years and take pride in undertaking a constant programme of review and study to improve my practice and remain up-to-date.
I am also a mother of three children, so can bring empathy and understanding of what it’s really like to be a new parent.
