"Alison is a calming presence. She supported and looked after us in those early days where we needed to learn everything from scratch and also feel reassured we were doing a great job. I loved being able to breastfeed both boys and got through those first hurdles with her championing me the whole time. I loved getting a cuddle too - it meant a lot and I really needed them!"

"Alison I cannot possibly thank you enough or rave enough about what a tremendous guide you were for us; you're like a guardian angel. Isabelle is incredible: I'm still overwhelmed with awe. She is as drama-free as I imagine it's possible for a baby to be, and so very smiley.....she seems so happy, and makes us so happy. I feel lucky to be her mother!"

"Alison is very kind, patient, wonderfully experienced and full of useful resources. I highly recommend her for first-time mums."

"Alison, you have been wonderful. You have helped me to feel a lot calmer and more relaxed that I would have felt without you in those first few challenging weeks."

"You were especially good at spotting what I needed....it was difficult for me to articulate in the beginning what I actually needed help with, so your guidance, support, help and open ears were a big source of strength for me. Your visits were very precious 'time-out' for me; I felt that I could totally relax. Thank you so much!"

"Alison was so helpful with breastfeeding when I came home from hospital and was having trouble. She taught me different positions to achieve a better latch and made both me and my baby much more comfortable. She didn't leave until I was happy and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs any help with breastfeeding."
