I am Natalie, a London girl - born at King's College Hospital, raised and still living in South London.
I am mum to 3 beautiful & amazing daughters . I began my journey as a birth, baby & parenting expert after the birth of my 2nd daughter and have been working with mums, dad's, babies & children for the last 10 years.
I began working as a doula in 2009, after realising the need for support in birth and postnatally.
I was very aware of the positive effect support and care for a new mum can have on mum, baby and the family as a whole. I wanted to be there to support women during this sometimes scary , nervous , exciting and wonderful time in their lives. I wanted to be able offer my clients a full antenatal package, so I trained as an antenatal teacher with a focus on keeping antenatal simple and sharing hypnobirthing techniques for a calm birth. I now run 2 course for expectant parents courses : Prep4 Baby, is a practical baby care course. Antenatal in a Day , a 1 day online course launching in Januray 2020 and
I am trained as baby massage instructor and teach courses to help mums and dads bond, connect and calm their babies. I run private NCT/antenatal group courses and one to one courses all over the UK.
I found as a doula, that I was working with lots & lots of parents to improve their baby's sleep.
It was then decided to become fully certified as a baby sleep consultant. I love being a sleep detective and finding the root of the sleep issues and giving parents the sleep solution that is right for your baby and your family .
I have began working more and more with parents with older children offering advice and support on managing screen time ( a 21st century parenting issue!) , coping with tantrums and being a calm parent.
That is why I now offer parenting support, in my other business Bliss Parenting, support for parents with children 3- 16 years old.
I am fully trained in paediatric first aid, hold a current DBS and am fully insured. I am always attending new courses to keep myself up to date with all things birth and baby.
