Bio: Hello… My name is Natalie – The Dragonfly Doula and I am based in West Surrey on the Surrey/Hampshire/Berkshire borders where I live in Frimley, Camberley with my husband and my family. I have 3 children of my own and I exclusively expressed for all of them so I have personal experience of how mindfulness techniques and creating a relaxed environment are conducive to a more successful expressing and feeding journey. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive the support I needed to feed from the breast and the healthcare practitioners I did have contact with as they didn’t have the experience or the knowledge to help me. Due to a lack of continuity of care, I didn’t have the opportunity to build a trusting relationship with a midwife or a health visitor so when I encountered challenges on my breastfeeding journey I didn’t know where to turn for support and I ended up muddling along on my own. My personal experience has inspired me to strive to provide the support that I lacked, during my own feeding journey, to the families that I work with so that they have the tools and the knowledge to have a much more positive experience of breastfeeding. I also aim to be that continuous and trusted source of guidance, be it with positioning, latch or signposting to other practitioners that can help where I cannot.
With this sort of dedicated, 1-1, continuous support breastfeeding can be a successful and fulfilling experience for you and your baby!
