BIOGRAPHY

After training and qualifying at the prestigious Norland College in the mid 90’s I went on to work as a nanny for families. The children I cared for ranged from newborn babies to 9yr olds.

During my time working as a nanny I cared for Newborn babies and completed the MNT maternity practitioner course. I began maternity nursing in 2003 after my move to Edinburgh as I wanted to specialize in an area of childcare I have always been drawn to. I now live in the lovely Borders town of Peebles.

I have vast experience with multiples including triplets and have cared for many premature and low birth weight babies. Whether it’s one, two or three babies – breast or bottle fed I am dedicated to helping, advising and supporting you with your little ones.
I have worked with children for 20 years and understand that each family is unique and requirements vary. Over the years I have amassed valuable experience in identifying and resolving issues.
Having a family myself has taught me firsthand about being a mum and whilst this is very rewarding I fully understand the challenges that this brings and the benefits of establishing positive habits and routines.

BIOGRAPHY

‘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.’
