How did I get here?

πŸ“· by Elle Narbrook

I trained  for four years, in busy London Childrens hospitals as Paediatric nurse, qualifying in 2011.
After becoming a mother, I discovered a new thirst for knowledge in supporting mothers with carrying and feeding. 

So in 2016 I started a sling library in High Wycombe, undertook peer support training with the School of Babywearing. At the same time, I also began training to be a breastfeeding counselor (BFc) with a national breastfeeding organisation.

“I wanted to become the supporter I needed”

I became a carrying (babywearing consultant) in 2016 with Slingababy, whilst also completing my breastfeeding counselor training (Bfc). I was BUSY!  

Running two very busy voluntary groups, working part time AND being a mum, was too much for me and my family, so I handed over the sling library to its current custodian & it is still thriving.


I have spent years and a fair amount of money volunteering, and now it is time to offer my skills to you all, so I can save you some time and hard work.  

In 2018, after a few years nurturing my growing family and supporting mothers in the voluntary sector as a BFc, I made the commitment to undertake a year long breastfeeding specialist course (self funded!), with the aim of becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.

I sat the exam in Oct 2019 & the results are due end of Dec 2019.. Watch this space!

How can you work with me? 

Monthly feeding and support clinic (Sunday sessions).

From Jan, there will be mini consultations available, an affordable way to tweak on issue you are facing.

1:1 online & at your home or hospital πŸ™‚

I offer evening and weekend home visits with digital support in between. Daytime visits are reserved for urgent feeding issues.

1:1 mentoring for people working with human milk.

I am teaching introduction to slings workshops with in The Village Midwives Postnatal course.

I am still also…

I am working one day a week in hospital as a Paediatric nurse. 

I am podcasting about feeding at carrying. 

I am an active volunteer also. 

If you feel I am a good fit to support you, I look forward to hearing from you soon πŸ™‚
