Home Visits

Sian Aldis (IBCLC Lactation Consultant) provides one to one private consultations in your home. This will include taking a full breastfeeding history and observing a breastfeed. Following this, practical support will be offered and discussion regarding any concerns.

Following consultation you will receive written recommendations, which will also be sent via email with links to further information as necessary. If required contact can be made with your Health Care Professionals. This is included in the cost of consultation.

As a Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner, I offer Mindful Breastfeeding to all my postnatal clients. Depending on your wishes, this may involve affirmations, guided visualisations and other mindfulness tools.

My aim is to leave you and your baby calm and in control and with the necessary skills to breastfeed in the way that you wish.

After a consultation, follow up support is available via text and email for up to two weeks. Further follow up visits, clinic appointments and online consultations are also available. You are welcome to attend the free fortnightly Breastfeeding Support Café for continued support.

Support is available for a wide range of breastfeeding concerns and ages of infant, including (but not limited to):

  • Painful breastfeeding
  • Nipple trauma
  • Difficulty latching
  • Milk supply
  • Expressing
  • Identification of tongue-tie (restricted lingual frenulum)
  • Referral to paediatrician for assessment/division

A initial postnatal consultation is up to 90 minutes long, depending on the level of support you require. At times it may be necessary to book a follow up visit (which are charged at a lower rate – see below) for further support.

One to one postnatal home consultation: £70

Follow up private home consultation: £50
(Prices are inclusive of travel)

Sleep concerns are something I can also support you with alongside breastfeeding. Holistic sleep support compliments Breastfeeding Support. Sleep ‘training’ is not what I offer.
