Breastfeeding

“I am so pleased I was recommended Dee for the difficulties we’d been having with feeding our seven week old baby. He had been struggling to gain enough weight due to a vicious cycle between low milk supply and long, inefficient feeds. Having been put on an intense pumping plan, I had lost sight of focusing on the quality of the breastfeeding itself. Within minutes of arriving at Dee’s, she had him giving the best feed since the day he was born, even on my less favoured side. Within half the time as usual, he was satiated and then spent 45 minutes chirpy and smiling at us both. Since then, I have felt more confident with his latch and positioning, resulting in easier feeding and much less stress for us both. He is now gaining weight well. I would thoroughly recommend an appointment with Dee as early as possible in anyone’s breastfeeding journey.”  Anna H

“Dee has been an amazing help for me and my baby girl. After 4 weeks of struggle to breastfeed Dee showed us how to do it correctly and most importantly comfortably. She was quick to respond to my cry of help and I don’t know if I would have continued to breastfeed without her help and guidance. Now the feeding is comfortable, pain free and I am even considering to feed in public which I dreaded before. I would recommend Dee of anyone who struggles and finds breastfeeding hard and painful.”  Sanita

“Di is the ‘yoda’ of all things to do with breastfeeding and babies. Her knowledge and guidance was fantastic. Her clear, instructive and patient approach was just what I needed to help me position my baby correctly. She filled me with so much positivity and energy. It was the best phone call I made!”  Sheel.

“Dee came highly recommended from a friend and she helped me when I hit a low point with my breastfeeding/sleeping around 4 months. I wanted to make sure I was doing it right so I could get back on track. She’s very personable, easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable and at ease. She had a lot of good advice, even about non-breastfeeding related issues such as napping, and was a big help to me and my babies. I would happily recommend Dee to anyone who needs some support in the early days or even later on when, like me, things seem to have gone a little off track.”  Martina

Tongue Tie

I came across Dee’s details after frantically searching the Internet for any information or help regarding a tongue tie division. It was noticed at our 6 week check up that my son had a tongue tie – which was resulting in his frequent feedings and difficulties latching onto his bottle. We were referred via NHS – however after waiting 2 stressful weeks we still had no appointment through and no one answered our phone calls or emails when we tried to get in contact. I contacted Dee and within the hour I had a response which was amazing!! We arranged to meet and had the tongue tie divided that same evening.  Dee was amazing both in communication beforehand and in person. We were put at ease straightaway. The procedure was simple and very quick (over within a few seconds). We had a fresh bottle ready for after – in which my son took to immediately (latching onto his bottle perfectly & drinking the most he ever has in one go with ease). We are extremely happy and thankful for all Dee’s help and expert advice. I would recommend to anyone. If it wasn’t for Dee my son would still be struggling with his feeds and getting very little sleep.”  Charmaine S

Parent First Aid Courses

“I had Dee round to our flat for a private first aid course with seven other couples. We had a great afternoon, most importantly learning but in an easy to understand relaxed format with babies roaming wild and practising their own CPR techniques on the mannequins! Highly recommend that anyone does this course. Dee covers all the basics and things you may not have even considered, she really knows her stuff and leaves you feeling confident that you can handle any emergency situation.” Jane

“My husband and I attended Dee’s first aid course on the 1st November. We both found everything fantastic, Dee was so friendly and explained everything from a professional and a personal ‘mum’ point of view. It was so useful and reassuring to walk away feeling so much more confident about what to do in most situations. I have attended a children’s first aid course 4 years ago, so this was a brilliant refresher and although we hope we never need to use most of it – we both feel Dee has given us enough to be able to help our children, and others if we ever need to! Thanks so much, and we’ll be back in a year to refresh our minds again! We will spread the word to recommend this course!” Debbie

“I thoroughly enjoyed Dee’s course, I found it really useful and loved how easy it was to absorb all the information, Dee made us feel very welcome and I think its ideal for anyone who needs first aid training, would highly recommend!”  Sally
