Doula and Breastfeeding Resources

Below I have made a selection of my favourite books and websites on breastfeeding and the postnatal period. They provide invaluable information to new mothers and families.  I love to share these resources with you as they can help you prepare during pregnancy and discover the path that feels right to you.

 

I own at least one copy of the books listed below, and am happy to lend them out to mothers I work with in my role as their postnatal doula or breastfeeding counsellor.

I ask for a £5 deposit - refunded upon return - and a £1 lending fee.

Many of these books are also available to buy from lllgb.books.
