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 am currently working in both the private sector and in the NHS . In the private sector I work as a Lactation Consultant and also offer support on other parenting issues for children under 4 years. I also volunteer for various community groups.
In the NHS I am a member of the infant feeding team at UCLH. In this role I support families on the ward with feeding issues before discharge home, support families in the tongue -tie clinic and also facilitate 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 based in South East London but am happy to travel to other areas depending on timings and access on public transport - please contact me for details.
