About Me

Deb Hanson (she/her) BNurs (Hons), Grad Dip Mid, Dip HB (KGH), IBCLC 

Hello! Bonjour! Ciao!

Who am I?

Thankyou for visiting my website and finding out all about how I can help you to have the best parenting journey for you. I am really passionate about infant feeding choices, empowering people to do what is right for them and achieving their goals. I am proud to work with the LGBTQ+ community and I am experienced with families of multiples. You can read my 5 star reviews Here

What do I do?

I work as an NHS Community Midwife and a private Lactation Consultant. I was part of the original team to achieve the first Baby Friendly Initiative Status at Birmingham Women’s Hospital where I started in 2003 and I have worked as a Specialist Midwife in Infant Feeding being the unique link midwife for the community midwife teams in South Birmingham. I am a member of Lactation Consultants of Great Britain (LCGB), Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners (ATP), the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

In my spare time (what’s that?!) I like to walk my dogs, (but that’s only really because I also like eating chocolate!) I have 4 amazing children and live in Worcester. 

What is an IBCLC?

IBCLCs are health care professionals who have provided 1000+ hours of infant feeding support, plus 90 hours of lactation-specific education and then in 2019 I passed a 4 hour board exam, which we need to pass every 5 years.  All IBCLCs are certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) and in addition I am registered with Lactation Consultants of Great Britain (LCGB). Therefore this is the highest qualification obtainable in breastfeeding in the world which makes IBCLCs a real fountain of knowledge for Infant Feeding Support!

What about tongue-tie?

I completed my Advanced Clinical Skills in Tongue-Tie Management course at the University of Wolverhampton (Masters, Level 7) with my clinical practice at Kidderminster Minor Injuries Unit as part of Worcester Royal Acute Hospital in 2023.

I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you on your journey! Get in touch with any questions!
