Lactation Consultant

If you have recently had a baby and are Breastfeeding or Mixed Feeding (Breast and Bottle) you will hopefully have been visited by Katie fisher, Broad Green Sure Start Lactation consultant; either in the hospital or at home.

As well as making visits to May Day hospital to new Mums, Katie holds several sessions across our sites plus makes home visits.

For the second year running the number of women in Broad Green Breastfeeding their babies has been very good with those continuing to feed their babies at 8 weeks and 4 months and beyond, better still in fact better than the National average so very well done! The Government currently recommends that babies are exclusively (this means no other milk or food) breast fed for 6 months and this is what we hope to achieve.

 Katie is not only available for Mothers with newly born babies, whatever stage you are in your Breastfeeding, she can help, whether you are returning to work , want to express your milk and need a pump, want to introduce formula milk , or are ready to stop Breastfeeding; help is available. If you are expecting a baby and are still undecided about Breastfeeding, it might be a good idea to discuss your options.
