Marlene and Jacqui are so vastly knowledgable on breast feeding, weaning and child nutrition! My aim was to breastfeed Layla for 6 months and I can honestly say that without your help we wouldn't have got there! Thanks to you both we did, but also you gave me the confidence to wean her onto bottles when the time was right for me! I am proud of myself and of my happy healthy baby and I will always recommend Arrival breast feeding support to anybody who feels like breast feeding is becoming a challenge for them.

Marlene & Jacqui, I can't thank you enough for your advice, guidance and support over the last 2 years. I feel blessed that I had met you at the children's centre before having Emilia. After 2 days of painful, cracked nipples I was in tears when I called you for help. Who would have thought then that I would be able to feed her for a year! Your patience and holistic care, not just to me but to Andrew, gave me the strength to persevere. 6 weeks down the line when her tongue tie was finally released and feeding no longer made me cry you introduced me to the lovely Bosom buddies group and I have been going ever since! Second time round with Benjamin I thought I was going mad. Despite his tongue tie being released at day 2 he refused to latch on and the midwives were stumped. A quick chat with Jacqui at bumps and babes confirmed my suspicions that there was still a posterior tongue tie present and gave me the confidence to ask for a second and third opinion until it was released. Feeding improved overnight and I hope we will now continue our breastfeeding journey in a more relaxed manner. I will definitely be recommending your service to all my friends!!

Dear Jacqui & Marlene,
Thank you so so much for all your help, advice and support during my pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Thank you for all the home visits, help feeding, baby cuddling and all the yummy food at bumps n babes. I'm sure without your support I would have given up before they were ready to. I'm delighted all 3 of my girls were able to have my milk for their first year and to have shared all those precious moments with them. Xxx

After six weeks of breastfeeding, I was dreading every feed. My nipples were so sore and the whole experience was stressful and upsetting. I was doing everything right, so just thought I was a bit delicate, but thankfully a friend put me in touch with Marlene and Jacqui. They first of all transformed my thinking by making me feel like a trooper for sticking at it for so long rather than a failure for hating it. Then after a little conversation and a view of my feeding they quickly informed me that my baby was tongue tied! They talked me through my options and put me in touch with a lovely lady to snip it for me (the doctor was not helpful on the matter). If it were not for the arrival ladies I would have given up and felt truly awful about it. Now his tongue is sorted, he is happier in himself and feeding is transformed! They have since been back to see how we got on and helped me with our technique. I cannot recommend their support enough, they are amazingly warm and friendly, with endless knowledge and understanding. If you are struggling even a little bit, and even if you're not sure why, give them a call!

You ladies are wonderful!!! I first met you 2 years ago after 2 weeks of feeding my 1st baby when I felt so sore and covered in blisters and thrush. You helped me overcome issues and I fed for 7 months happily. I recently received your help with baby 2 and now I'm totally pain free. Thank you! You don't realise how important feeding is to you until you feel you can no longer go through the pain. I persevered and I came through it thanks to you ladies and all the phone calls and visits! X x

I just wanted to thank you both Marlene and Jacqui, for your wonderful support and advice. You came out to me as soon as possible and your advice on correct latch and positioning meant that I completely healed within a few days and now have no pain at all when feeding. I have gone from dreading every feed to looking forward to them! Thank you so much :)

Marlene and Jacqui - Thank you so very much for your wonderful help and support. You were with me within 24hours of my call for help, you understood exactly how I felt and coached me through the difficult time I faced. Your skill, patience, understanding and encouragement guided me and my baby and we have now made progress that was for me unimaginable before meeting you both. I never knew that breastfeeding could be such a challenge but with your support I am now able to comfortably and confidently breastfeed. I am so very grateful to you both - you are a wonderful team.

Thank you for all your support. Michael is feeding very well now and is enjoying the boobies. You were excellent help.

I just wanted to thank you both so much for the support you have given me. You are both fantastic, so reassuring and you made me laugh so much too! I will have no hesitation to call you again if I feel I need to in the future, and have recommended you to so many people.
You are wonderful!
Lots of love, Cassie and Baby Lucas xxx

I found your service so brilliant, we had so much trouble trying to breastfeed but youwere amazing support. It was very reassuring and comforting. I am still exclusively breastfeeding and hope to do so until Finn is 6 months old
