Conchita 4 Breastfeeding - Breastfeeding and Lactation Consultant
Covid Update: I have re-introduced home and office consultations to complement to my virtual video consultations.
In order to protect my clients and myself I am minimising face -to -face time and will ask you to attend a short assessment video consultation prior to any home visit being offered, This will be reimbursed when a home or office visit has been carried out. I am double vaccinated and happy to wear a face covering.
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 delighted to be back in Bristol after having been away for nearly 10 years. I have worked with families in both the private sector and in the NHS for over 20 years. In the private sector, I have worked as a Lactation Consultant and also offer support on other parenting issues for children under 4 years. I have also volunteered with various community groups.
In recent times I worked in the NHS as a member of the infant feeding team at University College London Hospital (UCLH). In this role I supported families on a 44-bed Maternity ward who had feeding issues before their discharge home and supported the weekly tongue-tie clinic and 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 based in Clifton, Bristol and can offer home visits locally am happy to travel to other areas depending on travel time and availability (Milage may be applicable). Office consultations are available in Clifton and virtual video consultations anywhere.
