Hello and welcome to my world! I am a mum, a grandmother and a wife. I’m also an author, pregnancy & baby wellness expert, childcare consultant, business coach, aromatherapist, reiki, heka & crystal master, women’s networking director and serial entrepreneur plus I find time for TV, radio and magazine interviews and appearances… wow, all that crammed in one crazy, happy and positive life!
Oh, and I love llamas too!
My passion is to empower mums and mums-to-be to have positive, holistic pregnancy, birth and baby experiences through conscious sensory connections that is my Babyopathy programme.
To support this I also launched a campaign called Routine in the Womb with an awareness month each June and I still continue consulting in the childcare profession to share my 25 years of knowledge and experience to make every child’s life a sensory and positive one wherever possible.
Now, through our online training, local consultants and my continual work, Babyopathy can help nurture more babies from conception, through pregnancy, birth and throughout baby’s first years.
What I do
hello from me...
I opened my first nursery aged just 21 years old. With a background in training and HR dealing with women on maternity leave, I soon realised there was a need for a nursery in my local area. When I had my own children (who are now both in their 20’s), neither of them slept for more than two hours for three years! So, I began researching everything that can have an impact on a baby and children eventually introducing the my own sensory and nature based development programme in to my nurseries in 2000. Over the years, and with continual research, I have positively influenced the lives and development of thousands of children, this achievement culminating in being named one of the Top 10 Most Influential in Childcare in 2017. I published my first book in 2014, bringing Babyopathy to everyone, and not just the children in my care. Since then, I have worked with many women privately through their pregnancy, birth and baby journey including celebrities, influencers and mums everywhere, with Babyopathy being named by Mother & Baby magazine as ‘The New Routine for 2017’.
