Newborn Care and Advice

Bringing home a new baby is an exciting and emotional event for all parents, but it can be overwhelming and daunting at times. Having a calm, highly experienced and trained professional at hand can help families settle in and get to know their little one with confidence.

 

I also work as a Newborn Care Specialist (also sometimes known as a Maternity Nurse or Maternity Practitioner) offering an expert guiding hand to families welcoming new additions into their lives. I provide supportive overnight care for babies from birth, as well as daytime home visits.

 

I offer practical, gentle, respectful and discreet support - empowering new parents and encouraging them to trust their instincts and their babies, to know what they need. I'm a huge advocate of the 4th trimester, gently supporting babies to transition into the big wide world, particularly over the first 3 months, while encouraging a natural rhythm and routine to form, that works around the needs of both the baby and the rest of the family.

When working overnight with families (usually 10hrs):
