For 5 years in neonatal care within the NHS I am privileged enough to have worked extremely closely with mothers and fathers during some of the hardest and some of the happiest moments of their lives. I am also a qualified nursery nurse with a strong background in nursery settings, and paediatrics. I have a wealth of knowledge in reflux, infant care, safer sleeping and breast and bottle feeding. I am extremely passionate about working closely with parents and that is why I love both my roles so much.
As a working mother of one and I have experienced sleep deprivation myself, and I sympathise enormously with what you are going through. My job for the last 5 years has not just been to provide specialist medical care to babies born prematurely or unwell term babies, but to also guide and support families in creating a feeding and sleeping routine in preparation for discharge. I could not understand why I could not get my own son to sleep. I know now I couldn’t see the wood from the trees and was severely sleep deprived. I decided to get help and it was by far the best decision I ever made! It enabled me to go back to work and take care of vulnerable babies and their families, Something I never could have done having been awake all night with my own baby. For this reason I decided to dedicate my professional career to also specialising in baby and child sleep.
I understand the judgment parents can feel, and the overwhelming conflicting advice that is out there that can leave you feeling more confused then ever. I will be there every step of the way with you whilst we work together to help your little one learn to sleep. I believe in gentle but consistent routines and methods that help develop healthy independent sleeping habits. My guidance will allow you to provide love and reassurance for your little one along the way whilst teaching those all-important sleep skills.
