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 women and their families after a new bundle(s) arrives into their lives, helping them to navigate all the Transitions that this time can bring.
The Parent NEST focuses on supporting families from the time of babies birth, to supporting the smooth transition back to the workplace.
As an executive coach, I work with parents to equip 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 to identify and reduce guilt and anxieties, practical planning, setting boundaries, all focusing on setting the parent up for a smooth transition back to the workplace after your leave.
Through my training as a PostPartum Doula through DoulaCare Ireland, I also support families during the rollercoaster of the 4th trimester, that time after a baby is born.
I am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) with the International Association of Infant Massage. Through my baby massage classes, I support parents in creating a nurturing bond with their baby through touch, while also 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 on their parenting journey.
