Hi, i'm Lizzie a Lactation consultant based in Surrey and co-founder of Baby Hive. I'm also a mum to Lottie and Finley!
Breastfeeding in the early days can be a challenge for mothers and babies as both learn this new skill together. Every mother and baby’s unique labour and birth will have an impact on their experience of breastfeeding in the early days. I understand the highs and lows of breastfeeding having had my first baby Lottie who was premature and then my second baby Finley who has a cows milk intolerance. Breastfeeding is natural but its not always easy!
Supporting you to feed in the way that works best for you and your baby. We offer one to one practical support by listening to you and how your feeding journey has been so far. Offering practical information and support and an holistic plan that is personal to the both of you.
Follow up and continuity of care is so important when establishing and continuing your breastfeeding journey. This is why all contacts include follow up via email and text so that you can continue to be supported along your breastfeeding journey.
