Babies Consultation


Information and reassurance for tired parents


This How Babies Work Guide provides you with a foundation of knowledge, coping strategies, ideas and reassurance.

  • what babies need
  • your baby’s brain and stress
  • responding to your baby
  • simple baby cues
  • baby development
  • growth spurts
  • interaction & play
  • babies and sleep
  • separation anxiety
  • clingy babies
  • challenges for your baby
  • challenges for you
  • your expectations
  • the impact on you
  • what can help you

You can access this guide online and download resources to read and use at home


Here’s how it works:

  1. You can access the online guide and download the How Babies Work worksheet to use in your own time.
  2. We will arrange a 90-minute 1:1 video session or phone call to go through your questions and to make sure you feel informed, supported and reassured about the early weeks with your baby.


As your 1:1 session is remote, I can work with parents from all over the country.
The benefits of these online sessions are:

  • you can be comfortable at home with your baby
  • you don’t have to rush and stress to get to the class
  • you can meet the needs of your baby – feed, change, stand and rock

As an experienced antenatal & postnatal practitioner, I have worked with parents since 2002

As part of the first year with your baby, there are some postnatal options:

    • you can book 1:1 sessions with me to talk it though, ask questions and to feel more informed, supported and reassured
    • a range of postnatal guides are available: the 4th trimester, baby sleep, how babies work, being a mum and going back to work
