Tip – sleep safety

Sleeping on the sofa with your baby is not safe – it is too uneven and there is an increased risk of suffocation.

If you fall asleep holding your baby, there is also a risk that you could drop her.

If your baby will only sleep near or next to you, it is safer to plan to bed-share.

Working with parents since 2002

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
