IMOGEN UNGER BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT Email IMOGEN I have always felt strongly about the importance of women being supported and empowered on their journey into motherhood. It’s because of this that I made the decision to become a Lactation Consultant. I am passionate about breastfeeding, but more importantly, I am passionate about mothers having an informed choice.

Over the past 15 years I’ve worked alongside many families, providing breastfeeding support in Neonatal Intensive Care units in the UK & Australia. More recently, I have established myself as a private Lactation Consultant. A highlight in my own maternal journey was the birth of my two children and I am grateful that I was able to exclusively breastfeed them both. I strongly believe that it was the support and guidance I was given during this time that enabled and enhanced my experience.

I believe that breastfeeding can be made easier with great preparation and support. I offer a range of services for mothers and couples, both before and after the birth of your baby. My intention is to leave you feeling empowered and positive, trusting that you will make the best choices for you, your baby and your family.
