Here’s to 2020

This time of year can be full of posts declaring bigger and better for the year ahead – but I’m just going to keep doing what I do: small groups & private sessions for parents and writing useful posts here. My work aim for this year is to keep keeping it simple with honest, realistic information, good support and as much reassurance as I can dish out for parents. My role as a practitioner is about confidence, wellbeing, community, being heard and feeling less alone. The one change I need to make is to shout about it more and your help is vital – your recommendations, feedback and post sharing makes all the difference, so please do share my details with anyone who is pregnant or who has a new baby. Thank you!Jx
