Meet The Team
Welcome to Breastfeeding Midlands. We are 2 International Board Certified Lactation Consultants supporting breastfeeding mothers, and families, across the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire and The Welsh Borders.
With a wide range of professional qualifications, including in midwifery, health visiting, neo-natal
and sick childrens nursing, Rebecca and Pippa are both skilled healthcare professionals able to
draw upon many years of practical experience to provide expert support to both mothers and
fathers at all times throughout your baby's early years.
We appreciate that breastfeeding is not always easy and sometimes you need a little extra
reassurance and help to achieve your breastfeeding goals. Working together, we can give
you professional, practical information and one to one support in a caring, sensitive
manner to support you on your breastfeeding journey.
Why Choose Us
As qualified Lactation Consultants we are able to provide specialist and practical support to help overcome any breast-feeding challenges that you may experience during the first few weeks and months following your baby's arrival. Unfortunately, there are many people who call themselves “Breastfeeding Specialists/Breastfeeding Consultants/Babyfeeding Specialists” without holding any valid credentials. Breastfeeding counsellors have substantial breastfeeding training and must belong to an accredited organisation. However, Lactation Consultants have the most extensive, evidence-based, and up-to-date knowledge. Please take the time to look at the link below to see the differences between "Breastfeeding Supporters" in order to seek the most appropriate help.
