Hi :) I’m Flavia!

Here’s the face behind
Flávia Martins IBCLC
Lactation Consultant
by Safe Steps Uk!

I am a neonatal nurse working for the NHS for the past 12 years and became a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist and IBCLC in 2023.

Mum to a 3 year old little boy who was born prematurely at 35 weeks and came to question all my knowledge and skills about breastfeeding :’D

We breastfeed for 30 months but the lack of support caught me completely off guard :(
and after, unofficially, helping friends with their breastfeeding journeys, I embraced the path to become na IBCLC and now make my mission to help as many families as I can with their own journeys.

So if you need help, want to know more and prepare yourself or just want someone
to hear you get in touch!
