Family Support includes a full Breastfeeding Consultation, together with additional hours spent with you & your new family in your home.
The aim of this service is to support you in any way that you require. This might be to support you in caring for your new baby, or allowing you time to rest and recover whilst I care for your precious little one between feeds.
During this period of time, lactation support will be given throughout, together with emotional and practical support to help you rest, recover and relax and enjoy your life as a new family. This may also include caring for older siblings and animals.
If time (and your baby!) allows, I can also help with some light housework.
As a qualified Lactation Consultation and Holistic Sleep Coach, my training provides me with extensive knowledge of newborn baby behaviour. I have qualifications in childcare practice (Cache) and previously worked as a Registered Childminder. I am also a mother of 3, so I am well practised at changing nappies!
I began childminding from my home in 2010. Since then I have furthered my training to specialise in lactation and sleep support and continued a career in supporting new families. I have supported hundreds of families in this time and love to see parents grow in confidence and enjoy this special time with their new baby.
My role is never to tell you what to do or to take charge, but to gently support you in your parenting to feel relaxed and assured going forward.
