Zoe Faulkner lactation consultant

I can offer you and your family up to date skills and evidence based breastfeeding support. I can give you the time you and your baby need to work through your breastfeeding situation in a supportive and empowering manner, in the comfort of your home.

Every mother and baby pair is unique, and each new baby an experienced parent has brings a different set of needs. I work with you to support you to breastfeed in harmony with your aspirations, with sensitivity to your personal circumstances, at any time in your breastfeeding relationship.

It is a great privilege to be supporting breastfeeding families, I have been involved in breast-feeding support since 1997, like many I was first motivated and inspired by my own experience with my first born.  I qualified as a lBCLC lactation consultant in 2011. I also have a BA from the University of Brighton and a City and Guilds teaching qualification.

I have a great enthusiasm for the importance of the breastfeeding relationship, and for the ever increasing understanding of breastfeeding and breast-milk.  I very much enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience through educating and training others to support breastfeeding mums, which I currently do through my NHS work. I also enjoy the balance of my different roles, I attend as many conferences and study days as I am able.

Zoe is a founding member of Brighton Breastfeeding, supporting families since 2014
