Shore Beginnings

You’re ready for the birth, but are you ready for your baby? Fourth trimester and breast-feeding support

Rebecca Melville

Sometimes the most important beginning can be difficult….

Becoming a parent is a monumental transition of body, mind and soul, the most transformative of experiences. Even so, many new parents find the first few weeks and months overwhelming, confusing and frustrating.

A baby’s brain is built by these earliest experiences and will influence their mental health and emotional resilience throughout their adult life.

Love really does matter

I’m Rebecca Melville

Midwife, Health Visitor, Infant feeding specialist (Lactation Consultant exam this summer!) and Mum to two fab children. I’ve worked professionally with new Mums, babies and families for over 30 years, but mothering is my passion and supporting parents as they begin this incredible journey is what makes my heart sing!

Happy Clients

"I chose to do all the courses about pregnancy and birth as well as NCT. They largely covered the same things but Rebecca's course was in fact the most valuable course I've done so far and has given me a firm footing on what to expect and how I need to respond in the crucial 4th trimester. Some of it was mind blowing. I'd recommend to anyone pregnant or newborn...."


"Finding Rebecca before I gave birth was one of the best things I did - her advice and support prior and post-partum have been invaluable; I don't think I could have coped without her! "


"Rebecca has, without a doubt, been the most important and influential person during our parenting journey so far! Her encyclopaedic and up to date knowledge have helped us decode our daughter at every twist and turn, whilst her kind, warm and caring manner have beamed regular doses of sunshine into our lives. Working with Rebecca has been the best thing and we couldn't recommend Shore Beginnings more."
