Geraldine Chew

Lactation consultant and qualified NCT breastfeeding counsellor

About me

Geraldine qualified as an IBCLC in 2010.

She trained with the NCT and qualified as a breastfeeding counsellor in 2005. Geraldine works extensively in her local community running breastfeeding drop-Ins in Twickenham and Hounslow and visiting mothers and babies privately at their homes. For many years she assisted mothers with breastfeeding newborns at the West Middlesex University Hospital. She also works as part of London Lactation Consultants.

"My aim during a consultation is to really understand what each mother wants and needs in terms of feeding support. I then use my experience, practical knowledge and counselling skills to work on issues and leave mothers with a clear plan for the way forward and feeling more confident in themselves."

Geraldine can visit mothers in a large radius from Twickenham.

Service packages

Initial Consultation

I offer a private visit in the comfort of your own home, at a time to suit you.

My aim during a visit is to give you the opportunity to explore and discuss what’s been happening for you and your baby. We can then work together to address practical issues and help you to move forward. I will answer any questions you have throughout our time together. My goal is to leave you feeling more confident, and with a plan and strategies for next steps, so that you can better achieve your breastfeeding and mothering goals.

Initial visits usually last 90 minutes.

Additional time is charged at £30 per half hour

The fee is a flat rate and includes all travelling time and expenses.

Follow up visit

Subsequent visits usually last an hour and offer an opportunity to review how the feeding plan has been working for you both, and to discuss any further options that you would like to explore or additional questions that you might have.

Additional time is charged at £30 per half hour

Telephone and FaceTime consultations

If you would prefer a telephone discussion about your current situation, or are too far away for me to visit, I am sometimes able to offer consultations by telephone or FaceTime.

Testimonials

  • I was in a mess after a tough first week of motherhood. My baby had been tongue tied, I had suffered the physical and emotional consequences of it and was very stressed and anxious about feeding. Geraldine was my saviour. She talked me through feeding positions that would be more comfortable (given the circumstances), helped me understand how to make sure my baby was feeding properly and helped me build my confidence. Within days I went from dreading breast feeding to enjoying it as a wonderful and special bonding time with my baby. Thank you Geraldine. Sarah
  • My experience with Geraldine has been such a positive experience for me.  Every visit resulted in increased confidence and made huge differences to my comfort levels with each feed.  We are still going strong breastfeeding 7 months later and I'm certain without Geraldine's help and support this would not be the case. “ Stacey
