Welcome to The Parent NEST.
When a family welcomes a new baby, it is such a special time, but can be very overwhelming, daunting and exhausting, no matter what number baby you are on. The reality of life with babies can be very different to what’s portrayed, or what we maybe thought it would be.
With 4 young children, I absolutely understand the rollercoaster for parent’s. As I began my own parenting journey, I experienced first-hand just how hard and challenging the transition to parenthood can be, and quickly realised that it is an area that many don’t speak openly about for many reasons, and the importance of meaningful supports.
My career has spanned Finance, Operations, Business Development and Sales, before setting up my own business to Nurturing, Empowering and Supporting parents after a new bundle(s) arrives into their lives, helping them to navigate all the Transitions that this time can bring.
As an executive coach, I empower parents and the organisations that employ them, with the tools and strategies to support a smoother return to work. The focus is to empower the parent, making sure they feel confident and in control, supporting them to identify and reduce guilt and anxieties, practical planning, setting boundaries, improving work-life balance, all focusing on setting the parent up for a smooth transition back to the workplace after leave.
At The Parent NEST we work with organisations and their people managers to better support employees during the transition back, through training and guidelines, helping promote consistency for employees and improving attraction and development of key talent.
I am also a Postpartum Doula and a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) with the International Association of Infant Massage. Through our baby massage and mum and baby classes, we support parents in many aspects of life after baby. Empowering and supporting parents through meeting other parents at a similar stage with their babies. These classes help create a village/support network for parents to lean on as they are navigating their parenting journey.
