Thank you Rene for all you did for me and our little bub. You did not only give me advice on breastfeeding but also on how to help bub with her sleeping pattern too. You also walked around soothing her while we were talking, I thought that was so sweet ☺️. You have also been checking up on how we are going, thank you so much because as a mum with a new born it’s nice to be asked how you are going and told you are doing a good job🤗

I just want to say that as a first time mum with a premmie baby and we were just starting our breastfeeding journey, Rene was an absolute hero and lifesaver. I contacted her one morning during a difficult time when I was stressed about weight gain and whether or not we were breastfeeding efficiently. Rene emailed straight back and could see me for a home visit that day! I was so incredibly grateful for her caring and calming approach, she reserved judgement and was patient and caring of my myself and my little boy. After being discharged from the hospital with concerns and questions over whether I was doing enough at home, Rene was able to offer fantastic suggestions, reassurance and techniques that we could continue on our breastfeeding journey with confidence. I could not be more grateful for that early visit and have appreciated all her advice over email since then as well. Thank you Rene, I don't think I could ever really thank you enough. Highly recommended!! xx

I saw Rene when my little one was only a few weeks old. I had very sore breasts from feeding and felt hopeless, I had tried everything but was still in a lot of pain. I was motivated to continue breastfeeding but I knew I couldn't continue the way I was going. I really needed help. I booked in with Rene and then she came to my home. During our consult Rene was kind and calm and asked me how I was going and was genuinely interested in my recovery from birth and health as a new mum. Rene asked me what I was struggling with and then spent the rest of the consult focusing on how I could reduce breastfeeding pain. She showed me some amazing techniques to help get a deeper latch. She showed me them using a visual aid and then helped me latch bubs myself so I could get the hang of it. Putting it into practice over and over again was the most helpful. She also gave me other advice and ideas on how to reduce pain and calm redness and inflammation whilst my breasts were getting used to the feeding. Rene also introduced me to the ABA and encouraged me to come along to the meet ups to get ongoing support from the consultants and other mums. I'm so glad I saw Rene. I cannot recommend her enough. The consult I had with her has been paramount in my breastfeeding journey. My little one is now 7.5 months and we are still breastfeeding and these days it just feels like a breeze! Thanks Rene xoxo

I could not reccomend anyone that is anymore passionate about their job then Rene is. I have been to Rene on many many occasions when I’ve needed help, advice or just someone to talk to when it’s come to breastfeeding and even becoming a first time mother. Rene helped me keep my daughter on the breast through so many downs when i thought it was the end of my journey. Rene is very honest, passionate, caring, considerate, loving, nurturing & just a very beautiful professional lady who WILL help you as much as she can to continue your journey breastfeeding your babies. I just want to thank you rene for your well needed time in mine and my daughters life through out our breastfeeding journey, you have been absolutely amazing in every way. I love how much you love your job. ❤️
