information and help

Virtual Services during the ongoing CV19 emergency .....  
I can be in touch with you via old-fashioned phone (works really well!), email, Facebook Messenger, Skype or Zoom

Whether you have a quick query or want help with a major challenge..  please get in touch. 


I am also offering regular virtual Antenatal Preparation Classes for small groups of mums2b due around t.he same time.  

Some recent feedback below....

'Very informative and definitely helped to build my confidence as I approach my due date.'

'I feel so much more confident and knowledgeable thanks to Jill. It was lovely not having to drive anywhere too '

'Thank you Jill! It was a good way to do the classes in the comfort of our own homes, and lovely to be able to meet other mums to be in these times as well.

 And great to have local expert support!'  

'Thank you very much Jill, I'm sure in a few weeks your words of wisdom will become invaluable to all of us '

All my services over this difficult time were completely free. If you have benefited from this,  you might like to consider making a donation to Toilet Twinning on my Just Giving page...  bringing clean water and safe hand washing to communities where this is not currently available

Hello and welcome, whether you are:

  • Still pregnant and looking for feeding information before baby arrives
  • Struggling with the early days or weeks of breastfeeding a new baby
  • Encountering a breastfeeding challenge - even after a trouble-free start
  • Just feeling that something is not right, or that you have got in a muddle with feeding
  • Wondering whether your baby's feeding style or behaviour is normal, etc....!

Whatever stage this finds you, my way of working is to offer:

  • A listening ear and a gentle, compassionate approach
  • TIME to hear your story, assess feeding and talk through your feelings
  • TIME to take account of all aspects of your situation. The 'Big Picture' is important - there is so much more to breastfeeding than just following a set of instructions
  • Time to explain what is happening, explore your options and help you draw up a feeding plan that works for you and your family.    
  • Information and options - there are always options. 
  • Ongoing support as you work towards your feeding goals.

Together, we can talk things through and draw up a strategy that will work for you
