Infant Feeding

*** Newbury Doula is moving Stateside in the new year, so I am not taking bookings for births, antenatal sessions or post natal support. I recommend checking out the Doula UK website to find another doula, or call the National Breastfeeding Helpline on 0300 100 0212 to speak to a qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor, but get in touch if I can help. L xx ***

Private Infant Feeding Preparation ~ £45*. For details of this session, see the Antenatal section.

Infant feeding support ~ £40** for an initial visit of about 2 hours, in your own home (within 25 minutes of Newbury), plus a follow up visit at no extra cost if wanted. 

Flexible postnatal doula support ~ £15/hour* and I offer a 10% discount on the first 10 hours if you book(ed) me for antenatal support too. Block bookings welcome.

Hospital grade breast pump hire. See here or contact me by phone for details.

Without Lindsey’s knowledge & support I’m sure I wouldn’t still be breastfeeding my baby

If you have concerns or questions about breastfeeding or infant feeding in general, or just want to make sure you have good support for your feeding journey, I offer one-to-one infant feeding support in your home.

I have experience of supporting families with a wide range of situations, including:

  • new babies
  • colic or reflux
  • older babies and toddlers
  • pumping
  • supplemental feeding
  • formula feeding as well as breastfeeding
  • tongue tied babies, including initial recognition and post-division support
  • NICU, SCBU and Childrens’ Ward
  • Donor milk
  • sleep concerns

I can support you if all is going well, if you’re having issues or if you have questions and concerns (e.g. about going back to work).

I am not yet a fully qualified Breastfeeding Counsellor or an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) (see a Who’s Who of breastfeeding here), but I can support you in a flexible way, in your own home, and help you find more specialist support if needed. Working on a one-to-one basis enables me to support all situations.

If you need extra support with infant feeding, please contact me and we can discuss how I can best help you. For infant feeding support visits, I travel roughly 25 minutes from RG14 7JJ, which works out as all of West Berkshire and some of north Hampshire. If you are further afield, I can help you find more local support or I do travel further for ongoing postnatal support (different fees apply).

*If you are more than 10miles from me, I may still cover your area but will need to charge to cover travel expenses as well. This is quoted upfront before you book me so you know what you’ll be paying. Get in touch to find out more.

**I do not want money to ever be a bar to accessing infant feeding support when needed, so if paying me would be a problem for you, please still contact me and we’ll work something out.
