Hannah's photo of her babyI met Jackie at the point I was about to throw in towel with breastfeeding. I was an exhausted first time mum to a preterm baby that wasn’t gaining weight. She supported me, empowered me and most importantly listened and gave advice. Since then she has supported me at every stage of breastfeeding.

Not sure we’d have got this far without her.

Photo of George our breastfeeding mascot!Jackie came to see us when I was experiencing some supply issues making for a very unhappy mum and baby.

I’d already successfully breastfed two babies so thought I knew everything and was close to giving up trying. But, Jackie came and went through breast compressions and other great tips to keep us going! That was when George was just under 4 months and now he’s over 8 months!

Whilst watching me feed Jackie noticed I looked particularly sore. I explained I had been treated for thrush since George was less than a week old. Jackie asked me a few questions then suggested I try not wearing breast pads and see if things improved. 2 days later, after 4 months of agony, I was completely clear and Jackie was right, I was allergic to the pads and this had been missed by other professionals since George was born.

I only wish I had seen Jackie sooner, she made it so our breastfeeding journey was enjoyable instead of the struggle it previously had been. Thank you!

Zurina AliI have known Jackie for more than 10 years. She then worked as a health visitor in the North Manchester area, before she certified as an IBCLC.

Jackie is really passionate and genuinely enthusiastic about all aspects of breastfeeding and empowering families to reach their breastfeeding goals. I am one of the fortunate people who has seen how Jackie has progressed in her career over the years.

Embarking in this new venture is really another achievement that Jackie contributes to the breastfeeding community and to families who wish to breastfeed. I am thrilled that these videos will be available to more families as they provide evidence based and up to date information.

I am a qualified midwife, having worked in both the hospital and the community for more than 40 years, and I have had the privilege of knowing Jackie in a professional capacity for the last 9 years.

Jackie is a wonderful Infant Feeding Coordinator who has a wealth of up to date and well researched knowledge. She is a great communicator who is reassuring patient and empathetic with a real desire to problem solve.

Her passion is to encourage breastfeeding parents to continue their journey as long as they want to. All these qualities combine to make Jackie an expert in her chosen field of breastfeeding support. Use this website and be reassured and this will help you to continue nursing your baby for as long as possible!
