What are Sarah's breast feeding qualifications ?

Sarah has more than 30 years breast feeding experience as a midwife working in both hospital and community settings. She holds qualifications in "Advanced Breast Feeding Skills" and "Breastfeeding Skills for Preterm and Multiple Babies".  


Breast feeding is a special time to spend with your baby with many health benefits for both mum and baby. Sometimes, in the early days, things are not straightforward though. Sarah can help you to recognise feeding cues, promote good positioning and attachment and discuss with you "normal" baby behaviour when feeding. Please see the Antenatal Preparation Class information for breast feeding instruction pre -birth for 2 hours at £60.
