About Wonderlove Lactation:

As a new mother many years ago, I experienced so many feelings of anxiety, extreme happiness and sadness and all the things that I now know are common among many women.  The most difficult part of becoming a mother was learning to breastfeed my child.  It was the thing I assumed would come naturally but, guess what - it proved to be the most difficult.  After a single consultation with an IBCLC, my breastfeeding journey began.  Motherhood has been my favorite career so far. 

My passion is to support mothers and babies as they embark on this wonderful chapter in their lives.  I provide you with support, evidence based information, a non-judgmental and caring attitude to help you attain your goals in feeding your new little human.
