I am a La Leche League GB breastfeeding counsellor, this is a voluntary position. I joined LLL in 1992 and got accredited in 1997.

You are more then welcome to contact me with any queries you might have regarding breastfeeding – and you don’t need to be breastfeeding to do so. 

You can contact me if you are:

  • Pregnant
  • Have specific breastfeeding question
  • Have stopped breastfeeding and want to relactate
  • Ended up bottlefeeding and with a new pregnancy would like to find out more so it doesn’t happen again.
  • Or if you chose to bottle feed and considering the pros and cons of breastfeeding for a subsequent pregnancy.

I will aim to answer your queries within 48 hours.

If your question is more urgent, then please contact a local breastfeeding counsellor or if you don’t know where to find one, ring the

La Leche League helpline: 0845 120 2918

The La Leche League website ( is also a wonderful source of information.
