Breastfeeding consultations can take place in your home or in my home in South Dublin. Generally a consultation takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. We time the visit around a breastfeed so I can assess your babys latching, positioning and feeding. Read on »

I saw Nicola when my third baby was tongue-tied – she saved us! I’d highly recommend Nicola for anyone with concerns about how breastfeeding is going. She has huge expertise and experience, and is very kind if you can’t fully articulate what is wrong or if you cry on her shoulder too. Andrea – April 2014


I’ve attended Nicolas excellent classes before my babies arrived and they were invaluable, helped me recognise what was normal newborn behaviour and gave me an extra confidence boost to breastfeed !! I’ve also needed a few home visits (baby 2 and 3 were tricky feeders) and Nicola always arrived with her warm smile and relaxing outlook. Always left me with a plan, & feeling back on track . Nicola is amazing !! Fiona -April 2014



E is now over 3 months old and has almost doubled his birth weight exclusively on breastfeeding! I’m thrilled to bits and know for sure I could not have continued for much longer with the pain of the tongue tie when I saw you. Since getting his tongue tie sorted when he was 3 weeks old the breast feeding has gone brilliantly! I’ve recommended you and your class to a few girls but just wanted to say thank you directly!  Emma- June 2011

Just thought I’d let you all know that I had my beautiful baby a week ago. I wanted to breastfeed but was very unsure how it would go. Thankfully, it’s been great & very successful & I put it all down to a breastfeeding class I did before. The midwives were very helpful but their advice can be quite conflicting. I just followedit what I’d learned in the class for latching baby on & worked. The class I did was & was great. Nicola is lovely & the whole atmosphere is very relaxed. C
