Private consultations in North London
I support families in my consultation room in London N6 on the borders of Highgate/ East Finchley and Muswell Hill. There is easy parking and it is a 5 minute walk from East Finchley tube station on the Northern Line.
I am following Covid-19 safety guidance and the room is cleaned between visits with only a limited number of visits available each week.
NB: A video session is needed before a face-to-face session can be booked. Many issues can be resolved through video support and face-to-face sessions are only reserved for those who have not been able to receive the care they need remotely.
Sore or damaged nipples and help with positioning and attachment is a regular focus. However I am trained to cover a wide range of problems and challenges. From the family with a premature baby in the early days of breastfeeding, to the family weaning at the end of a breastfeeding experience. From the mother concerned about insufficient milk supply and dealing with underlying health problems or a history of breast surgery, to the mother struggling with an oversupply of milk and an excessively fast flow. I am also experienced in supporting families with twins and supporting parents to re-lactate. I can also support you with combination feeding or bottle-feeding.
A session may require my technical knowledge of breast and nipple problems and infant physiology or perhaps we may work together as a team to help you find solutions to parenting struggles such as family sleep, changing relationships or the return to work.
A session of approximately 90 minutes costs £80. This includes an initial video assessment. After this, we can settle on a pricing structure that we are both happy with. You may want more than one session. If you are on a low-income, I am happy to discuss different pricing with you.
You may also find it helpful to arrange a session antenatally where we can discuss your expectations for breastfeeding/chestfeeding or discuss and debrief any previous experiences. An antenatal meeting and a follow-up support session once the baby is born would cost £120.
I can also offer a remote video consultation for £60 (of up to an hour). Please visit the video consultations page for further details.
You can also join me for a Walk In The Woods (Highgate Woods) if you would like to talk about breastfeeding in a relaxed natural environment. A walk in the woods costs £30 for an hour and is particularly suitable to celebrate the end of breastfeeding, reflect on breastfeeding in pregnancy or make plans for weaning.
