Who is BoobieMilk?
BoobieMilk is a Mummy run business providing in-home nursing bra fittings in and around Sevenoaks, Kent. Nursing bras and accessories are also available for purchase at www.boobiemilk.co.uk to be delivered to the whole of the UK.
My name is Karen. I am Mum to two adorable, exclusively breastfed children. Although I am a local, I have spent the last ten years working and living with my husband in the United States.
I've spent the last 6 years in Baltimore managing a government program providing food, nutrition and breastfeeding counselling to low income families. It was during this time that I piloted and launched a large breastfeeding project which incorporated breastfeeding peer counsellors, a lactation consultant, and breastfeeding education/incentives to improve breastfeeding rates among low income families. As part of this project I was trained to fit nursing bras.
I am glad to be back on British soil and excited to share the skills that I have learnt with pregnant women and new mums in Sevenoaks and beyond. Please excuse the American accent.

Why should you choose BoobieMilk?
Having a baby is a very rewarding and exciting time in any woman's life. It can also be a very busy time. Purchasing a nursing bra that fits correctly is very important, but may not necessarily be a priority for many Mums. From working many years with pregnant and breastfeeding Mums, I have heard many interesting stories about husbands being sent out to buy nursing bras, and tales of bras being fitted poorly and spending the rest of their life in the back of the underwear drawer.
The joys of breastfeeding your new baby should not be tainted by an uncomfortable bra that could possibly cause a plugged duct. A nursing bra should make your life easier. It should be easy to access, make your boobs look great, and you shouldn't even know that you are wearing it.
BoobieMilk aims to provide a wide selection of nursing bras that fit Mums of all shapes and sizes for every occasion.
It can sometimes be hard to find a well fitted nursing bra. BoobieMilk provides two avenues for getting that perfect fit:
You will receive help online to determine your correct size before you buy. A step by step guide available to help you measure yourself, and one-to-one help is available by email or phone if you are still unsure of your size. As a currently nursing Mum, I can understand your needs and I can give you information about my personal experiences with each product within reason (I am currently a 34E). I can tell you if a certain product fits smaller or larger than advertised. I am also offering free returns so that in the event you are unhappy with your purchase, and a bra does not fit the way you expected, you can receive the correct size at no additional cost.
Bringing a new life into this world can be exhausting and an emotional time. You may also be on bed rest, or just not want to take the baby outside yet. An in-home nursing bra fitting can be the perfect answer. You can arrange for me to come to your house at a pre-arranged time to fit your bras in the comfort of your home. You can take your time to try on different styles without the pressures of being in a store, and I can even make you a cup of tea while you nurse your newborn. If you decide for any reason that the bra you have chosen is not the one for you, I can come right back to deliver the right one.
