Are you about to become a parent for the first time?

Are you confused or overwhelmed with the choice of postnatal support available out there?

Perhaps your baby has already arrived but you are finding things rather more challenging than you expected.

Would you like to feel more in control, more confident and calm with your baby?

If you are on this site for any of the above reasons, then you have taken one very important step towards finding some answers.

All parents benefit from seeking some form of guidance or coaching during the early weeks and months of their newborn’s life.  They say it takes a village to raise a child, but these days, without the circle of wisdom which would have been available when living in close proximity to grand-parents, aunties and other family members, the first weeks with a newborn can feel like a lonely, exhausting and isolating time.  Therefore, getting the right level of support and coaching at this pivotal point in your relationship has never been more crucial.

Hundreds of people become new parents every day, and all of them feel completely overwhelmed at some point during the weeks that follow.

By teaching you how to read and understand your new baby, demonstrating techniques and tricks that I have learned during my 24 years, working with over five thousand babies, you will quickly begin to gain confidence and feel more in control.  I will dispel some of the popular internet myths about babies, helping bring some good old common sense back into play whilst offering you reassurance and encouragement every step of the way.

I was catapulted into the world of newborns 24 years ago, when my brother’s wife gave birth to triplet boys and I offered to help them out in whatever ways I could … well, in truth – my own mum volunteered me for the job – but that’s another story for when we meet.

When my nephews reached 8 months old, I made it a life choice to continue working with Newborns back in my home city, London.

A variety of Postnatal Coaching Packages are available so you can pick one that works for you.  Shorter packages to simply get you settled in, or longer ones helping you to adapt with your baby’s on-going development, showing you what needs to change and how to tweak routines to accommodate your baby’s ever-changing demands.  I can continue supporting you until your baby reaches 6 months old.

Parents seek my service when they simply want some spaced, professional coaching, delivered in a relaxed and informal way – as well as consistent and familiar support as they navigate the early weeks and months with their new baby.

My approach

I listen to the wants, needs and concerns of each individual family, then offer solutions that work for them.  I can arrange a home consultation to outline how I work, discuss what help you feel you will need, then put  together a bespoke Postnatal Package for you.  A far less invasive option than hiring a maternity nurse who would live with you for 24 hours a day, often for up to 6 days a week.

By choosing a Postnatal Package, spacing the visits so that you receive the right amount of information in a continual but manageable flow in the early weeks, then scaling back as your confidence grows, you will have time to bond with your baby in private, yet feel secure in the knowledge that I will be returning in only a matter of days to move you up to the next level when you are ready.
