During the COVID-19 Crisis obviously all groups and automatic home visits are suspended, however I also do a free live Facebook Q&A one Wednesday evening each month – these are saved to be watched at ay time. I answer questions posed by those watching or who have already posted ahead of the session.
See my Facebook page for more details.

Supporting families with unsettled babies: helping to manage the symptoms of colic, reflux, intolerances and allergies

After delivering versions of this 2 hours workshop to NHS, Voluntary Sector and Public Health staff across the country between 2013 and 2020, and delivering it online over the past 2 years, I am now making it available webinar. If you are a health professional who wishes to know more, please join us. Booking page coming soon – get in touch to register interest.

“I attended your webinar on infant feeding yesterday – thank you.  It was really insightful and extremely valuable.”
“It was really helpful to have the current evidence on colic, reflux etc and the scenarios were really useful, thank you.
“Thank you so much for your talk, very interesting and informative!”
“Thank you again for a brilliant and very informative session this morning.”
“I’ve just sat in on your zoom talk about colic, reflux and allergies which was brilliant – thank you! It’s always been a bit of a gap in my knowledge so was really helpful.”
“Thanks so much once again; what I heard and saw was really informative.”

If you are a commissioner who would like to procure the course for a group of staff or volunteers please get in touch.


Here’s some feedback from a recent live 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.” 



If you have a baby who will be under 7 months at the point of the session then please join us! You are welcome to bring baby or come alone, and with or without your partner or another companion.
The most recent workshop was held online in September but not recorded –at just £30 per family, payable on booking. (please get in touch if you are interested in this workshop – no date for the next one is currently organised)

Here’s some of the feedback from the session: “What a brilliant workshop last night. I’ve found this very useful. I feel a lot more prepared and ready for when I start introducing solids”, and “We have been still chatting over the weekend about some of the things we found out. Really great workshop!”



I offer home visits to private clients – see this page for more details. If we have already spoken and you wish to pay for a consultation at the agreed rate, you can CLICK HERE to make a payment, unless you would prefer to make a BACS payment using the details I have already provided. Payments via the website are slightly more expensive to cover Paypal costs.  If you would like to get in touch please use the contact form.


Twice every month I help run a breastfeeding support group in Blackpool with a group of ABM peer supporters:  a drop in  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 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. 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!

10am-12 noon, 1st 3rd (& 5th) Friday each month, South Shore Primary Care Centre, Lytham Rd, Blackpool FY4 1TJ – CURRENTLY SUSPENDED
