INFANT FEEDING

With Judy

Hello, I'm Judy. I'm Recently retired from clinical practice, following a long career as a Midwife, Lactation Consultant and Infant Feeding Specialist since 2008. I'm excited to join the group of experts on this course and share my knowledge and skills with you on all aspects of infant feeding. I'm here to offer support in baby nurture and baby feeding. I'll remind you of the different feeding positions and we'll explore troubleshooting tricks together as a group.  I want you to leave my session feeling empowered to achieve realistic goals and love nursing and nurturing your babies. You are all champions and heroes and I am excited to be part of your journey.

INFANT SLEEP COACH

With Caroline

The Sleep Remedy, Infant Sleep Coach

Caroline works to gently improve sleep. She supports parents of newborns right up to 7 years of age.
She believes sleep deprivation limits your ability to parent from a place of calm and responsiveness. Our parenting values don’t change but our ability to uphold them when we're disregulated is an impossible task. We snap, we cry, we're eaten up with guilt. We're human!

No-one should feel bad for wanting to improve sleep. Being responsive shouldn’t mean at the expense of your health and sanity. You can make changes that align with your values, whilst recognising that when you're happier and well-rested, you and your whole family will flourish.
