INFANT FEEDING GROUP – FREE to all !

Twice every month on Thursday evenings from 7.30-9.30pm I run an infant feeding group at The Black Bull, High Street, Great Eccleston, PR3 0ZB, which is a drop in to see me, either for ongoing feeding information and support, sleep discussion, attachment, bonding, parenting questions, or simply to meet other parents to chat and share experiences.  My scales will be there too if you would like to weigh baby. These evening sessions will be open to baby with Mum and /or Dad, plus companion if wished, and are group sessions. Antenatal mums and dads are welcome to join us too. If you are an existing client taking advantage of a visit to the group to access some follow up, please feel free to let me know if you are planning on stopping by, and if you are a new family and you’d like me to have some details about you before you drop in, you can complete my client history form here. There’s no obligation to complete the form. Group sessions are clearly no substitute for one to one consultations, but there is no pressure whatsoever to see me privately – the group is a great place to be and hopefully we all get something from it!

As the Black Bull is letting us use the room for free, it would be nice if you wanted to provide them with some custom by buying a drink at the bar before you come upstairs, but there’s absolutely no requirement to do so – and in hot weather they have brought us up jugs of water for the thirsty breastfeeding Mums, they are so lovely!

NEW!! “UNDERSTANDING COLIC, REFLUX AND FOOD INTOLERANCES FOR MILK FED INFANTS” WORKSHOP – NEW!!

Following on from the delivery of this workshop to NHS, Voluntary Sector and Public Health staff across the northwest over the past 18 months, I am now making this available privately to the public via evening workshops. If you are a health professional who wishes to know more, or a parent whose child is suffering from colic or reflux symptoms, or suspected /diagnosed lactose or cows milk protein allergies, please join us. Babes in arms are welcome.

Here’s some feedback from a recent session: “I attended a talk last week with Shel. Really enjoyed the evening. Shel answered all my questions and more. I’m due to have my 4th child and I’ve had problems with feeding, colic and milk intolerance with all 3. I feel much more confident and aware of how to deal with any of these problems if they arise with number 4. I would 100% recommend you attend the next event: the information on hand is invaluable to parents. I have in the past been to doctors, hospital, I’ve tried various products and nothing really helped, I just felt like I was doing something wrong. Shel goes through many scenarios and provides you with the knowledge, understanding and support to enable you to deal with these problems and more, should they arise. Thank you Shel.”

The next available workshop is Thursday 16th November – from 7.30-10pm at The Black Bull, High Street, Great Eccleston, PR3 0ZB –and is just £15 per family, payable on booking. Get in touch if you are interested to know more.
