I contacted Bettina for help following the birth of my first child by caesarean. He was separated from me for some hours after birth and had to be bottle fed and after that we found that neither he nor I knew how to breastfeed. Bettina visited us at the hospital and also at our home, but she also has a lovely consultancy where she attends clients. Her amazing advice and techniques proved to be absolutely spot on every time and her kind, confident and good humoured nature were absolutely priceless at what was a difficult and emotional time. Without Bettina’s help it would have been impossible for me to breastfeed my baby. In our case there were initial complications that made breastfeeding difficult, but I would recommend Bettina to anyone at all who is breastfeeding, as her knowledge is impressive and she is able to help with any kind of breastfeeding problem or simply answer any questions that arise to make all stages of breastfeeding a successful and pain free experience for mother and baby. In addition to recommending Bettina, I would like to recommend adding a breastfeeding section to the site to include professionals who can help, but also to list support groups or good places to breastfeed when out and about, etc. (Julie Coles)
