Breastfeeding Works

Breastfeeding Counsellors are usually breastfeeding mothers who have been trained to support other breastfeeding mothers. Some breastfeeding counsellors will offer private consultations for a charge. Lactation Consultants can also offer support. A Lactation Consultant is someone, not necessarily a mother, who has obtained the qualification by taking an internationally validated exam, demonstrating a high level of knowledge and skill about breastfeeding and lactation issues. Some Lactation Consultants provide those services in the course of their jobs within the NHS and some offer private consultations, usually within peoples' homes for a charge.
