I am happy to offer training in breastfeeding and tongue-tie to healthcare professionals, children's centre staff and breastfeeding supporters. I have provided webinars for GPs on breastfeeding and tongue-tie, training for breastfeeding supporters, Midwives, Health Visitors and Paediatricians on tongue-tie and breastfeeding training for childrens centre staff. I have attended the UNICEF BFI 'Train the trainers' course in the past and have taught courses for midwives and health visitors in Trusts working towards accreditation with the BabyFriendly Initiative.
I have several one and two hour presentations already prepared or I can put together sessions to suit individual needs.
