Your local breastfeeding specialists- here to help you. 

Each of the specialist below are qualified to support you with everyday and complex challenges. 

Breastfeeding counsellors are mothers who have breastfed themselves and gone on to train with one of the breastfeeding in the UK: La Leche League (LLL), National Childbirth Trust (NCT), The Breastfeeding Network (BFN) or The Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM).

Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) have undergone extensive further training to be international board certified lactation consultants. This involved many additional hours of study and supporting breastfeeding mothers as well as passing the IBLCE exam.  

Louise Barnett, Lactation Consultant

I'm Louise, founder of Ashford Breastfeeding Support. 

I am a fellow mother to two children who are 8 and 6 years old. I have personal experience of nursing after a c-section, through tongue tie, pregnancy, tandem nursing and many other challenges. An LLL Leader for the past five years, I run monthly meetings as a volunteer. In recent years I have worked for PS Breastfeeding CIC as a breastfeeding counsellor and now as an IBCLC lactation consultant. I currently run the weekly drop in group at Kingsnorth Recreation Centre, as well as an antenatal course funded by the Local Children's Partnership Group.  

In addition to this, I run a private practice for one to one support in your home as More Thank Milk, covering Kent and East Sussex.
