Professional background

Joanna Knap qualified as an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant in 2006, having started her work supporting parents as a licensed NCT Breastfeeding counsellor in 1996. She has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience over 25 years, supporting mothers at a vulnerable and challenging time in their lives. This has included working within the NHS, where part of her job included training NHS staff, as well as in private practice. In 2009, Joanna trained under Carolyn Westcott and Mervyn Griffiths at Southampton General Hospital to become qualified to assess and carry out tongue-tie divisions. As a result of this, she set up and ran an NHS tongue-tie clinic in a London Hospital and subsequently helped to establish a similar service in another NHS hospital. In 2018, Joanna also qualified as a Baby Massage Instructor, as part of her work supporting maternal mental health.

As well as working as an IBCLC in private practice, Joanna regularly teaches antenatal breastfeeding classes in south-west London, works at two weekly Breastfeeding Drop-Ins in north London and south-west London and continues to support parents as an NCT volunteer. She is passionate about supporting mothers and babies to have the very best start together, helping to form a healthy, strong and unique relationship with each other.
