‘I have cared for babies and young children for 19 years, as a private nanny and qualified nursery nurse. I have spent many years looking after children in their home environment, building bonds with parents and their families and supporting them.
I am particularly interested in Children’s Nutrition and creating positive attitudes to food. Establishing those important early habits with relationships to food is so essential, right from that first stage of weaning through their childhood into adulthood.
I have always had a natural desire to help others and when my own son was born in 2014 I realised how important that social support between other mums is, especially in the early days, and how I could help. I recognise all the challenges of caring for and raising children.
I decided I wanted to combine my years of supporting families, my knowledge from working with babies and young children and first-hand experience of becoming a mum to become a qualified maternity practitioner. I have offered advice, care and support to many families since then by advising on establishing sustainable early habits, helping with feeding, sleeping routines and supporting with weaning.’
