Journey Ahead: The Hypnobirthing Doula

Infant Feeding

Nurturing your feeding journey with your baby: Expert postnatal doula support

You’re not alone if you’ve struggled with thoughts like:

‘Is my latch right?’ ‘Why is my baby constantly crying?’

‘Do I have enough milk?’ ‘Do I need to pump?’

and many more questions that circle round our heads in those early days learning to feed our babies.

At Journey Ahead, I specialise in guiding you through the incredible adventure of infant feeding, offering a helping hand during those precious early days.

Embarking on the path of feeding your newborn can be both beautiful and challenging. If you’re finding yourself tangled in the worries and wonders of breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, or a mix of both, know that you’re not alone.

Many parents face common challenges, and that’s where I step in – to be your trusted companion through these early moments.
