Liz Lambourn has won the NCT Stars London ‘Practitioner of the Year' Award 2017

Liz Lambourn has won the NCT Stars London ‘Practitioner of the Year' Award 2017

We are so proud to announce that one of our breast feeding counsellors, Liz Lambourn has won the London ‘Practitioner of the Year' in the NCT Stars Award 2017.

Liz is an experienced Breastfeeding Counsellor who does invaluable work with new mums at NCT Baby Café sessions and at The Maris Practice Mum & Baby drop-in sessions. The team which also includes Anna Page, Geraldine Chew and Joanna Knap work very hard to see all the mums. Many second-time mums whom Liz saw first-time around come to her sessions because they trust her support.

The team offer one-to-one support for breastfeeding, both antenatally and postnatally. Each of our Lactation Consultants has many years of experience counselling mothers through the National Childbirth Trust and within the NHS. Their aim is to empower mothers to not only to breastfeed their babies but to enrich and enjoy their experience of motherhood.

What is often not mentioned is that all of our Breastfeeding Counsellors have to go extensive and rigorous training and regular re-qualification to maintain their registration. Due to cuts in funding they regularly give up their time free-of-charge to carry out work-shops, frequently in their own houses, to support mums (and dads) and their babies. They are always completely non-judgemental, using their years of experience, training and wisdom to nurture families through what is for some a very stressful time.

Thank you to all those who voted and we wait to hear on about the National Awards on the 4th November.
