Welcome to Judy McPhillips Lactation Consultancy

With many years experience in caring for mothers and babies, I have heard a great deal of conflicting advice given to new parents, inevitably causing confusion and, sadly, some mums to give up breastfeeding unnecessarily.

This can often be avoided with the help of someone who is qualified to help them sort through the minefield of information available.

Offering only advice based on valid research, I stay up to date with the latest evidence  based practice in the broad area of lactation and infant care.

I do not take a ‘hardline’ approach; the most important thing being that the baby is well fed and the parents are coping as well as possible with the new arrival.
