Pregnancy and young babies

Congratulations on the addition to your family!

Babies bring tremendous joy but they can also bring feeding worries, sleepless nights and feelings that you are ‘not doing it right’.

I have extensive experience as a mother, midwife and health visitor and can guide you through these early days, weeks and months so you can fully enjoy your new addition.

“People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.”

Before Birth

I offer home visits to cover any aspect of baby care or ‘life after baby’ worries you may have.

I specialise in emotional support for parents who may have experienced low mood or anxiety after previous children.

Early days and weeks

I can advise on all feeding methods and have extensive experience of helping breast-feeding mothers in the early weeks.

I can support you to choose a feeding method which suits your family and can advise when a baby is ‘colicky’. I can support with reflux and cows milk protein allergy in breast and formula fed babies.

Sleep in the first few months

I can guide and advise in what is normal sleep for young babies and can support with gentle ways of encouraging your young baby to sleep. I do not advocate ‘sleep training’ for a baby under 6 months old, instead I can support with feeding and maximize the amount of sleep a new family can get using knowledge of baby’s developing sleep cycles and circadian rhythms.

Extra support

I offer over-night stays to families who need a good nights sleep prior to starting a sleep programme. I also offer tailored emotional support to families struggling with the demands of a young family, using solution focused brief therapy and a ‘listening ear’

A home visit will be followed up with email support as needed and tailor-made sleep plan will made during the visit.

Overnight stays are available to help with implementing a plan or prior to this to allow parents to recoup some sleep. Priced from £200. Please contact me to discuss how I can help you.

I contacted Rachel via email for advice on a few sleep problems that I was having with my 5 month old baby. She was always really quick to respond and sent me a detailed plan/suggestions to try and tackle our sleep problems. Our nights have improved and we have fewer early morning wakes so her advice has been invaluable. I would highly recommend.
