During the COVID-19 pandemic 2020-2022, obviously all groups and automatic home visits are suspended, however I have also done lots of free live Facebook Q&As – these are saved to be watched at ay time; when running, 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.
WEBINAR FOR PARENTS COMING SOON
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.”

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!”

BREAST FEEDING GROUP – FREE to all !
Prior to the Pandemic closing everything down, twice every month I helped 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 were there too in case parents would like to weigh baby. These sessions were open to baby with Mum and /or Dad, plus companion if wished, and were group sessions.
Antenatal mums and dads were very welcome to join us too. Group sessions are clearly no substitute for one to one consultations, but there was no pressure whatsoever to see me privately – the group is a great place to be and hopefully we all got something from it! This is CURRENTLY SUSPENDED.
