Introduction to Solids
Introduction to Solids often feels like a huge deal for a parent. Just when you got to grips with one thing, the next challenge comes along!
We’ll unravel all the lingo, how do I start, what am I supposed to avoid, how will breastfeeding / formula work alongside?
Get in touch for more information and join me in my workshop for some friendly chat, tips and support to unravel the worries.
The birth experience is one of the most profound moments in a woman's life. Hopes, fears, faith in her body, how she is cared for and nurtured at her most vulnerable are all at the forefront of her mind.
These elements come together in a huge array mixed with intense emotions. How we are spoken to, respected, listened can impact us (both birthing person and partner) and will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
Initially we may feel fortunate to have our baby here, happy and healthy. But over time, these feelings can ebb and flow into something that feels unresolved and can totally affect how we feel about ourselves, our new baby and our ability to parent.
I offer the opportunity to sit down and discuss everything. From your pregnancy, your care in pregnancy, labour, birth and days postnatally and together emotionally you tell me everything. Small and big feelings. The lot. Together we work through what happened, how you felt, what was said and this listening can make a remarkable difference to your ability to believe in yourself, your faith in your body and if required, seek further counselling or support for both the physical and emotional recovery
Holistic Sleep Coaching
Trained by the leading Holistic Sleep guru, Lyndsey Hookway, I'm a firm believer that no baby or parent should every cry when it comes to solving sleep issues. EVER.
This means I work with parents on a 1:1 basis to understand the entire family's needs and what they'd like to achieve.
I will explain clearly and show the evidence that a baby's biological norm is to be near to the parent until the baby feels ready to be separate. I'm an advocate of co-sleeping, bed-sharing and understanding a baby's biological needs.
I can help with rhythms and pattern understanding rather than routines.
