There are a wide range of antenatal preparation courses available but I feel that there is a gap in postnatal guidance for parents.
So here are two super useful workshops for new parents.
They are also offered as bespoke one to one sessions in the privacy of your home looking at your own baby's rhythms and behaviour.
Workshops: £20 per mother and £30 for a couple.
1:1 sessions in your home: £75
My workshops are based on: evidence based research, my observations as a postnatal doula and what other parents have found useful.
Parents can find themselves feeling overwhelmed and confused by all the advice and information out there.
I hope to help you find a way through it all, so you can make the choices that are best for you.

Feeling sleep deprived and it's really no fun at all? In this 2 hour workshop, we will explore ideas to help you and your baby get more sleep.
We will explore the following areas:
Baby sleep patterns
Optimal feeding for sleep
A good sleep environment for babies
Soothing and comforting babies
Optimal sleep for you and how to get more
Some testimonials about the workshops:
“ Understanding approaches to routines and hearing other people’s experiences was helpful. The exercise on essential tasks versus non-essential ones was really useful. Thank-you!”
“It was all useful. The group discussion – feeling that other people are going through the same thing - was helpful. It was good to learn to prioritise and assess my baby’s ‘pattern’.”
