Shore Beginnings

Pregnancy, birth, 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

"We attended a weaning workshop run by Rebecca with our 4 month old baby. It was an extremely useful, well prepared & well presented session. <
I wish I heard about fourth trimester support prior to having our baby as I know I would benefit from Rebecca's support greatly."

Veronika

"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! "

Hannah
