Amazing at supporting families with feeding. Knows everything about breastfeeding. Manages to get any baby to latch and feed

Funny and friendly, brings an element of humour to the ward and always comes across as warm and empathetic to families.

Sarah goes the extra mile every shift, for the team and her patients. She is super efficient, works really hard and looks out for her colleagues in a busy shift. I’ve heard numerous families on the ward round singing her praises for her kind and approachable nature. Sarah is also famous for the way she supports new Mums with breast feeding, and I know there are many who may not have carried on their breastfeeding journey without her help.
