Breastfeeding Support Advisor
I am a mother of four and a qualified midwife. Having breastfed all my children and assisted many mothers over the years to breastfeed, I have a qualified understanding of the commitment required for successful feeding, and the encouragement and support that all mothers need to succeed.
My own journey with breastfeeding began with premature twins which was quite a challenge for a first time mother. The journey gave me a great insight into the challenges that face all mothers whether its first or fifth time round. Each experience is unique as is each baby.
I worked as a hospital based midwife for over 15 years in the UK and Australia. Since my return to Ireland I have also worked as a community nurse and a general practice nurse caring for mothers and babies in the community.
