Charlotte Crisswell lactation consultant

I have worked with babies and their families since 1999 in different capacities and have felt very privileged to have been involved in such precious but sometimes difficult moments.

My aim is to listen to you and hear your breastfeeding experience. I would like us to work together to enable you to realise a fulfilling breastfeeding experience. I don’t pretend to have a magic wand. I do have many years of experience, a sound evidence base of knowledge and I am totally dedicated, so will leave no stone unturned.

Working alongside Zoe and Anouk allows me to draw on their vast knowledge and experience, as they say, two heads are better than one.

Over the years it has become very clear to me that any issue that involves a new baby impacts on the whole family and as such the whole family is involved in the resolution. With this in mind, I hope that we can work together to realise a corner of calm in what can seem like a confusing time.

On a personal note, I am a mother of three and had three different breastfeeding experiences, all of which were ultimately very positive. My experiences have further informed my understanding of the breastfeeding relationship.

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