2. Your Baby, Your Family

Providing postnatal support and sessions for those early days, weeks, months with your baby is one of my passions. As a qualified postnatal practitioner, I have worked with parents for a number of years. My practice is based on research, experience and the different needs of parents to provide you with good information, coping strategies and reassurance.

My role is not to tell you what to do or how to parent. I am here to listen, to provide ideas and perspective. With calm reassurance, I am here to help you with ongoing strategies and plans so you can find what works for you and your family.

All of my postnatal sessions are about small groups and 1:1 sessions with conversation, offloading, questions and easing isolation.
