What People Say

Lyndsey has supported the city council for a number of years now with expert advice, training and education. She engages her audience and so it is not surprising that her workshops and presentations always receive excellent feedback from participants.

Gemma Scott
Advanced Public Health Practitioner, Plymouth City Council

Thank you for such a stellar presentation! It was apparent how much time, effort, and care you put into the. The participant feedback that’s been rolling in on the survey has been very positive and there were a lot of heart-warming comments being made at the end of the webinar!

Jill Swanson
Education Coordinator, Lamaze International

Hi Lyndsey, I’m taking the IBLCE in the spring and I have a 3 month in my arms as I revise! I wanted to take a minute to say how much I enjoyed your presentation over on GOLD. Clear, easy to follow and genuinely a pleasure to listen to! Thank you

Early results of the surveys indicate that you delivered one of the most illuminating presentations of the Conference, and Delegates would love to hear more from you!

GOLD Lactation Conference team 

I found your talk extremely practical in order for me to better support mums and their children with feeding difficulties. On behalf of the RCGP, we wish to thank you for the invaluable contribution you made to the Antenatal and Paediatric Conference.

Dr. Catherine Millington-Sanders
Royal College of General Practitioners

We were so pleased to have Lyndsey on board as a speaker for The Breastfeeding Festival 2019. She was so prompt with all of the information we needed to sort out the event and advertising. On the day, she arrived early and was on hand to speak to event delegates. The talk she gave was very informative, factual, and practical. As with most things regarding infant sleep, parents want to hear not just the science, but practical ideas for how to manage a difficult sleep situation when they are struggling. Lyndsey was able to give parents positive ideas that didn’t risk the well-being of their child. We are so pleased to have had her speak at the festival and would recommend her to anyone that would like to offer positive sleep support, and alternatives to the usual cry-it-out, to other parents.

J’Nel Metherell
IBCLC and Chairperson for The Breastfeeding Festival Milton Keynes

I would like to say a big thank-you for the presentation you gave at the National Neonatal Study Day. The feedback from the audience has highlighted yours at one of the most interesting of the day.

Rebecca Simpson
Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner

I would like to thank you for joining us on Saturday, your talk was inspiring, interesting and insightful. It was a very relatable topic for our members to consider. On a personal level for me it was life affirming. Although related to babies it gave me the confidence to continue to believe in my convictions as a parent and look a little bit deeper into the love languages in relation to teenagers, boys in particular!

Roisin Sproule
President, IAIMS

Lyndsey’s webinar, Lullabies and Lactation: Navigating Breastfeeding and Safe Sleep, was incredibly engaging and informative. She developed a natural connection with the audience and shared her expertise in a way that left learners feeling energized and more passionate about their work. Lyndsey approached the topic of feeding and safe sleep practices in a mindful way that utilized inclusive language and high quality, international research to inform her presentation.
