Anna Page - The Maris Practice

Anna Page


I started training as a breastfeeding counsellor shortly after my son was born in 1991. I qualified in 1994 and since then have continued to update my skills and training, qualifying as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2006.

My interest in breastfeeding started long before I had even thought about having children of my own. At university, my dissertation was a study of the developing interactions between mothers and their babies during breastfeeding. I loved watching this early communication and started to see breastfeeding as more than just nutrition for the baby.

I teach regular antenatal breastfeeding classes from my home in Kingston and work in a weekly breastfeeding drop-in in North Kingston. As well as my teaching for the NCT and spent over 10 years supporting breastfeeding and training staff on the maternity ward at Ealing Hospital. I offer private appointments to support women through problems that arise at any stage of breastfeeding.
