Hello, I’m Lettie and I help new parents grow more confident looking after themselves and their babies. Early motherhood is a beautiful but also overwhelming time, and many women find themselves wishing they had more support to help them navigate feeding their babies and keeping them well and happy in those early, vulnerable days—as well as finding ways to look after themselves (a piece of the puzzle that parents often neglect).
As an experienced NHS nurse and fellow parent I take a relaxed and practical approach, helping you to troubleshoot issues and empowering you to achieve whatever feeding ambitions you might have. If you’d like support to help you and your baby flourish together, don’t hesitate to get in touch: I can offer online support, home visits, phone support and antenatal teaching.
“As a first time mum during lockdown and far away from the usual support of family and friends, I was struggling with figuring out how to optimise feeding my new baby.
I had soldiered on for the first 4 weeks with a combination of tips from friends, online blogs and a bit of guess work. I am so thrilled to have been recommended to Lettie. She was able to fit me in super promptly and had a wonderful manner about her. I got to ask all my anxious questions and she addressed every one; letting me know what I was doing right, what I can do differently to address my concerns and feel better and even went on to discuss other matters that I was concerned about but did not voice myself.
She is an experienced mum and healthcare professional so is able to provide a holistic and professional response to queries that also draws on her own experience.
I wholeheartedly recommend her and wish I would have sought some guidance before. Within 6 hours of calling her, my baby is more comfortable, feeding better and my boobs are less sore. “ Leila
“Lettie has been such an amazing support for me and my son in recent weeks. Having a baby during an international pandemic meant getting to any support classes impossible leaving me feeling very isolated and unsure about if I was doing things “right” with a tongue tied baby. Lettie offering online consultations was a life saver. She gave me the most amazing guidance and support that was easy to understand and implement. Her help made me feel so much more confident in my abilities as a new mum and very positive about our future breastfeeding ongoing. I cannot thank and recommend her enough.” Florence
After having had feeding issues with my first son, I was anxious about how breastfeeding would go with our second baby. I was grateful to receive the additional support I requested from midwives antenatally and at the hospital, but even then was struggling with tongue tie issues once we got home. Lettie’s clear advice was just what I needed to get through the early days until we were able to get the tongue tie sorted. The contradictory advice out there can be so overwhelming, and Lettie was able to prioritise some key tips that gave me the confidence to carry on, whilst caring for myself as well as my baby. Five weeks on and I am delighted to be exclusively breastfeeding! The extra support was especially important during this pandemic. I have already recommended Lettie to friends! Katie
