… I am also bringing to my babywearing work the skills that I have gained in my work as an accountant (I have an MSc in Accounting and I am an ACMA – Associate of Chartered Institute of Management Accountants; I worked for Cable and Wireless, and had a position of Finance Director with La Leche League GB), people’s skills from my extensive communication skills training and facilitating (see ‘Communication Skills Consultancy’ pages of my web-site), and passion for supporting parents from my having volunteered as a lay trained breastfeeding counsellor with an internationally known breastfeeding charity.
