$45
per month
IBCLC support is globally recognised as the gold standard of training and care in breastfeeding yet in the UK it can be hard to access one for free. Your support will enable me to run a free regular breastfeeding clinic with my specialised skills and experience. 
To earn the title of IBCLC you need:
1000 hours of experience supporting families.
Either a medical background or hold 14 health science qualifications at college level. 
Have completed 90 hours highly specific lactation education. 
Sit a 4 hour exam every 10 years.
In many parts of the world an IBCLC can be accessed as standard through health insurance.

An IBCLC is often consulted once families have exhausted other sources of support and my work includes:
managing slow weight gain
oral challenges such as cleft palate
babies that can't latch 
insufficuent glandular tissue
relactation where a baby is struggling on formula.

as well as the more common issues of:
mastitis 
thrush 
nipple shields
positioning and attachment 
over or under supply
sleep worries
reducing top ups
Tiers
Hug in a mug (£2)
$2.60 or more per month

£2 a month contributes towards the all important refreshments available at clinic. Tea, coffee, biscuits... all essential to nourish and nurture families. 

Equipping mums to succeed (£5)
$6.51 or more per month

£5 a month will contribute towards the equipment I often use or give to Mums, such as silicone pumps, feeding tubes,  nipple shields, and milk storage pots.

Listening skills (£10)
$13.02 or more per month

£10 a month funds a follow-up call following clinic appointment. These are often important for ongoing support.

50% off a consultation
$26.03 or more per month

£20 a month will enable a family to access my clinic at half price.

Platinum boobs (£50)

£50 a month would cover a clinic consultation and a follow-up call. Amazing!
