I’m mother to two children, a 7 year old girl and a (nearly) 3 year old boy. I’ve learned so much from parenting both of them, and know first-hand that parenting is hard!
Before I had my first child I was a midwife for 15 years. As a midwife, I worked in a variety of settings including labour ward, midwifery led units and the community. I absolutely loved working as a midwife, but my focus changed after my kids were born.
Becoming a mother prompted me to move into more specialized parent support. In 2016, I qualified as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). My most recent qualification is as a Holistic Sleep Coach.
Plus, there are lots of other courses I’ve done along the way, like sling consultant, certification in neuroprotective care of newborns, 3 step rewind for birth trauma…
All of them focused on skills that will help parents.
The service I offer is based on research and experience, compassion and realistic expectations.
