As a mother of two children herself, Julie has developed an ever greater empathetic understanding of breastfeeding and feeding issues that mothers deal with on a daily basis.  Being passionate about working with women and their babies and families stems from her knowledge of the importance of providing physical, emotional and social support at this crucial time.  Julie has a non judgemental approach to managing breast and bottle feeding issues.

“I recognise the need for sympathetic, practical and holistic research based breastfeeding support within our community. New mums need to feel empowered to cope with the challenging journey that breastfeeding may prove to be, in order to enjoy their special bond with their baby. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a mum blossom with confidence in her new role of nurturing her precious baby. I keep myself updated so I can discuss useful new evidence to help emotional and developmental growth of the whole family.”
