In 2009 I started on a journey which became the biggest passion of my life (after my amazing husband and our two darling children): supporting mothers and mothers-to-be on their own breastfeeding journeys as a professional lactation consultant.
I strongly believe that the true EXPERT on the baby is the baby’s MOTHER. My role is to empower the woman and support her with evidence-based information to work out her own unique path in building and nurturing a satisfying breastfeeding relationship with her baby or babies.
I am here for mothers or mothers-to-be at any stage of their breastfeeding journey: from wondering about breastfeeding while expecting a baby, through to the first days and weeks of babys life, to established breastfeeding and through to any stage at which the mother finds she needs a listening ear and compassionate non-judgemental support and evidence-based information.
I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
I am also a member of the Lactation Consultants of Great Britain.
I work as a Lactation Consultant at King’s College Hospital (Tongue-Tie Clinic) and also volunteer at local community-based breastfeeding support groups.

Maria was amazing! We were having quite a bit of trouble with feeding, she came round the evening we called her and within minutes our baby was feeding beautifully! She gave us lots of advice and tips and followed up with texts and phone calls. I cannot recommend Maria highly enough.Susie
