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.
As a Mum of 4 young kids, I have always been very passionate about 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.
My focus to support families is on the time from birth, up to and including the transition back to the workplace.
I am extremely passionate about coaching parents when they are returning to work after a period off, whether maternity leave, paternity leave or an extended period away from work. My focus here is to empower you, making sure you feel confident and in control, supporting to identify and reduce guilt and anxieties, practical planning, setting boundaries, all setting you 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.
