Rebecca Scott-Pillai

So who am I?

First and foremost, I’m mother to two children, an 8 year old girl and a 4 year old boy. I’ve learned so much from parenting both of them, and know first-hand that parenting is hard! I consider myself an expert in babies, but I acknowledge that YOU are the expert when it come to YOUR baby. 

In a professional capacity, I’ve had 20 years working with families.  Before I had my first child, I was a midwife for 15 years and absolutely loved it. Becoming a mother prompted me to move into more specialized parent support.  I really struggled with breastfeeding when I had my first baby, and that galvanized me to find out more about breastfeeding. In 2016, I qualified as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), which is the gold standard in breastfeeding support.  After lots of inquiries about sleep from breastfeeding parents, I decided I needed to do a great sleep course.  In 2020 I completed the Holistic Sleep Coaching Course to level six (degree level). This comprehensive course gave me lots of new skills to help families find gentle, responsive solutions to sleep challenges, that were still compatible with breastfeeding.

I’m absolutely passionate about supporting families and providing them with the tools to meet their parenting goals.  To that end, I can also draw on several other courses I’ve done, including: accreditation in Neuroprotective Developmental Care of babies, Brazelton Newborn Observations, certification in Colic, Reflux and Infant Allergies (OCN level 3), Three Step Rewind for Birth Trauma, certification in Perinatal Mental Health Awareness (OCN level 4) and Sling Consultant, to name just a few.  All this really means is that when we discuss your parenting concerns, I’m able to draw from a deep pool of knowledge and experience to help you find the right solution for your family.

The service I offer is based on research and experience, compassion and realistic expectations.

I always intended to breastfeed my baby but we encountered lots of unexpected struggles in the early days - pain, mastitis, diagnosis of cows milk protein allergy in my little boy, tongue tie...

It was a huge struggle.

I stopped breastfeeding for a few weeks to eliminate dairy from my system and faced exhausting challenge of maintaining my milk supply whilst temporarily formula feeding and I was ready to give up.

Then I contacted Rebecca.

I have been back to exclusively breastfeeding my son for two months now and he is thriving!

Thanks to Rebecca's insight, advice, expertise and support I am now able to feed my baby how I always intended and I understand more than I ever expected about the magic of boobs and breastfeeding!

Thank you so much Rebecca x

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Rebecca for all her help and advice, she went over and above for me and never tired of answering my endless questions after her visit. After a shaky start to breast feeding we are now feeding well, this would not have been the case without Rebecca's invaluable support!

After a traumatic birth with my first baby, I decided to do the three step rewind sessions with Rebecca. The process was invaluable, helping me come to terms with how my birth went and how I felt after. Throughout the process I felt completely at ease and relaxed. I would wholeheartedly recommend that anyone who experienced a traumatic birth get in touch with Rebecca.

I was at the point of giving up before I seen Rebecca. I’d seen health professionals, support groups, peer groups and had all different information. Rebecca was fantastic she pointed issues out straight away and anything she couldn’t do she pointed me in the direction I needed to go. I can’t thank this lady enough, it’s all down to her that my baby girl is still exclusively breastfed. Her support was brilliant and she went out of her way to help. Next time I won’t wait so long before contacting Rebecca. Thank you.

Rebecca helped us with an approach to better sleep that my twins were not upset or traumatised by. We figured out steps that we would all be happy with, not training them but rather helping them sleep better. She gave us a huge range of options to try that were based on my children's and our needs rather than a blanket approach. I would recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a holistic way of improvement to remain connected to your child's needs.

Rebecca really knows her stuff...the extent of her knowledge is amazing. She left me with much more confidence in feeding my newborn. Despite having fed my first born until he was almost 3, I still needed lots of advice, and the support was so helpful and tailored specifically to him. Rebecca being a lovely person also helped me relax and get the most out of the consultation. Thanks Rebecca!!
