Conchita 4 Breastfeeding - Breastfeeding and Lactation Consultant
Welcome and thank you for visiting Conchita 4 Breastfeeding. If you are a parent to be, a new parent or have children under 4 years of age and want some support and impartial advice - this is the place to be!
My name is Conchita Amende and I am a registered International Board-Certified Breastfeeding and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have been supporting families with breastfeeding and other family issues for several years. I am passionate about breastfeeding and encouraging families to achieve parenting and feeding goals that work for them.
I have recently moved to Hale from London where I worked in both the private sector and the NHS. In the private sector, I worked as a Lactation Consultant and also offer support on other parenting issues for children under 4 years. I also volunteered with various community groups.
For the NHS I was a member of the infant feeding team at University College London Hospital (UCLH). In this role I supported families on the 44-bed Maternity ward with feeding issues before their discharge home, supported the weekly tongue-tie clinic and also delivered the antenatal breastfeeding class linked to the hospital.
I am a qualified nurse, midwife, health visitor and practice teacher as well as holding qualifications in teaching, health promotion and my ICBLC.
I am now based in Hale, Altrincham but am happy to travel to other areas depending on travel time.
