Shhh-ing Motherhood 'Shoulds'

I’ve heard all the ‘shoulds’.

Should I sleep when the baby sleeps?

Should I try baby-led weaning?

Should I listen to… my mum/bff/random stranger at the sensory group?

And what I hear when a mother starts a question with ‘should’ is that her inner intuition is being overridden by outside noise. There’s a sense of uncertainty. Pressure. Confusion.

But, if there’s anything I’ve learnt in all my years (10 years and counting to be exact!) as a maternity nurse, supporting hundreds of babies in their earliest cute-as-a-button-but-unpredictable phases, it’s:

There are no hard and fast rules.

No shortcuts or hacks.

No one-size-fits-all method.

Only this moment. This baby. This mother.

And that ‘should’, the one that’s playing on your mind right now, is my cue to support, reassure, and guide you through your motherhood journey.

How I can help


When lockdown hit, my DMs started blowing up. Mother’s who had found me in the early witching hours and they needed help – fast. Soon I began spotting the same themes and challenges crop up again and again. So, I put my unique, holistic approaches to all things baby on paper and created masterclasses that you can download and work through at your own pace, for whatever phase of motherhood and babyhood you’re in.

Virtual Guidance

Talking to a baby expert is all well and good, but what happens after that consultation is over and it’s back to the real world or sleep, feed, poop, repeat? I know better than most, that all babies are unique and so what works for one, might not work for the next. Which is why this 1:1 approach, observes your challenges at this moment, gives you personalised advice, then waits a week for you to implement, before we check-in and continue adapting with small tweaks, giving you an everyday routine that actually works. 

In-person Intensive

As my maternity nursing services are currently booked out, yet regularly requested, I wanted to find a way to work with mum’s that offers a similar access-all-areas experience to having a baby care expert on-hand but without the full-time commitment (and salary!). Introducing, Reassure & Restore. An intensive container that supports, nurtures, and guides you as closely as having me in your home 24/7.

My approach, in your words:

“Open and honest”  “Breath of fresh air” “Weight has been lifted” “Reset my expectations” “On our side” “Invaluable support” “Reassuring”

My promise to all mamas

I’m not your average baby expert. I don’t ‘specialise’ in sleep, or lactation, or nutrition. 

I look at the big picture and draw on my first-hand experience of exclusively maternity nursing under 1’s and bring a holistic approach to caring for your baby.

One that’s centered on empowering you to do what feels natural and intuitive. 

Our goal isn’t to get your baby to sleep 7-7 every, single, day – because life. Or get rid of the dummy overnight. It’s whatever feels manageable, comfortable, and right for you and your family.

And while we focus on getting baby’s rhythm on track, you’ll start feeling a shift too – as you enter into your most confident phase of motherhood.
