Welcome to my website, I hope you find everything you are looking for. If for some reason you can’t, please contact me to discuss your needs.
My name is Petra and I am based in Northamptonshire. I have also lived in London, Cheshire and Melbourne Australia. I am the mother of a grown up daughter.
I have been a midwife for over 20 years practising in both the UK and Australia. It was during my 3 years living in Australia that I developed my passion for breastfeeding. It was also during my time living there that I first heard about lactation consultants when I worked with them in both public and private hospitals. I was amazed at their level of knowledge and skill supporting mums with breastfeeding. When I returned to the UK I took it upon myself to train as a lactation consultant and I qualified in 2013.
I offer a range of services and support options all of which will be tailored to your individual needs. I hold weekly clinics in various parts of the country as well as a home visit service for parents who live within a 50 mile radius of NN8.
Every mother and baby are unique, so whether this is your first baby or subsequent baby I can support you with all aspects of breastfeeding.
