Our antenatal consultations & workshops are designed to fully prepare you for breastfeeding and leave you feeling confident about your upcoming breastfeeding journey. 

Our aim is to ensure you and your partner know practical techniques on how to breastfeed your baby, and understand what's normal and what's not, so you can identify and remedy any difficulties as soon as they arise. 





 

"I met Alissa at an expectant parent event and I immediately felt comforted by her friendly and professional manner. If I hadn’t had met her I would probably not have thought to learn about breastfeeding prior to my baby’s arrival. I am so, so glad I did and we throughly enjoyed the workshop.  I feel as prepared as I can be for breastfeeding and excited for when the moment comes."

Our antenatal consultations can be booked on their own, or as part of a breastfeeding support package 
Group and 1-2-1 consultations available

Consultations include:

 

- how to ensure your baby latches well so feeding is comfortable and effective

- how to hold/position your baby 

- how your milk supply works, and how to build a good supply from the beginning

- expressing colostrum antenatally to avoid the need/pressure to top up with formula soon after birth

- how to assess your baby's feeding to know if they're getting enough (beyond just looking at the number on the scales)

- what to expect from your newborn's feeding/sleeping patterns

 

Private sessions are held 1-2-1 at home or virtually (for group sessions see below) as this allows me to discuss your pregnancy and planned birth in detail and address any feeding concerns with are specific to YOU and your baby. Partners are also encouraged to be actively involved. 

Private Antenatal consultations are £65 + travel (outside 15 mile radius of Ipswich) for in home sessions
or £45 for virtual sessions via video call.
