Attempting to settle a newborn baby in the postpartum period can leave many parents feeling concerned, helpless and upset.

Baby loss is not just a story of grief, of pain and tears; it’s a story of love, of celebration, of becoming parents. It’s a place where sorrow and love collide, where dreams lay shattered on the floor, but simultaneously a new view of life can be birthed. It is only when the silent scream […]

Alice Curry

Norland Nanny BA

My name is Alice Curry, and I am a 28 year old fully qualified Norland Nanny. With over 10 years of childcare experience under my belt having worked with babies from the moment they are born, all the way up until teens. Since qualifying with both a degree in Early Childhood Studies and the unique Norland Diploma, I have also trained to become a Level 4 Maternity Practitioner, where I help both parents and the baby settle into a good solid routine and give the parents up to date advice. Over the years I have found myself working for a range of families in different settings, from VIP’s to royals, travel nannying to being a full-time nanny, I really have seen it all. I absolutely love helping children be creative by setting up fun yet simple and affordable activities. Whether they’re for an educational purpose of just for fun, they really can be enjoyed by the whole family. This was where I really found my passion, and set up @nanny.inspiration.station to help inspire parents, grandparents, nannies, and anyone in-between for fun ideas for you and your little ones. From potty training to behavior management, from what to pack in your suitcase to how to stimulate your little one’s brains and everything in between, I truly believe I can give you all the help, advice, tips and tricks you may need for your little one.

Dr Claire Conlon

Senior Clinical Psychologist PsychD

Hello everyone, my name is Claire and I am a Senior Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years’ experience from both the UK and Ireland. I fell in love with psychology whilst working in Great Ormond Street Hospital over 10 years ago and have not looked back since. I am also a mum to two energetic and loving boys who have also taught me a great deal about child development, parenting and the all-important parental self-care.  I studied psychology as an undergrad in University College Dublin, before completing a masters in psychology in University College London and finally my clinical psychology training in Trinity College Dublin…..long road but totally worth it! When providing support for parents and children, I draw on attachment theory, developmental psychology, infant mental health, mindful parenting, behavioural support and cognitive behavioural therapy. I also provide much needed support for parents around trauma related to difficult birth experiences or coping with being a parent to a child with physical, medical, neurobiological or additional needs.  ​​

The Daddy Sleep Consultant

Sleep Consultant

I am the first qualified male baby and toddler sleep consultant in the UK & Ireland and a Dad of 2 amazing boys, Teddy and Rafferty. I specialise in designing gentle sleep training programmes specific to individual families and their lifestyles. I do not believe in, or use, the “crying it out” method. I offer one-to-one training programmes and my unique selling point is that I provide unlimited support. Although you often see results in just a few days, I will not end my support until little ones are sleeping through the night or when their personal sleep goals are achieved. I offer free 15-minute consultations to discuss my one-to-one coaching programmes in more detail. I also have a series of online courses following The Daddy Sleep Consultant sleep training method. I have distilled all my experience working with families one-on-one and created age-specific training courses to help parents deliver the same results themselves. I understand how impactful sleep deprivation is to our physical and mental health and my drive is to help families get their sleep back and fully enjoy being a parent or caregiver. As the only male in this industry, I am also striving to help Dads feel more involved and move the industry’s narrative to be more inclusive of all parents and caregivers.

Rebecca Ashton

Behaviour Specialist, Nanny, Sleep Consultant

Hello! I’m Rebecca, a certified sleep consultant. Having worked closely with families for more than 10 years I have noticed the most talked about topic amongst parents is sleep. How long are they sleeping? How early do they wake? Are they restless? Sleep is something parents crave most. It’s well acknowledged that neither parents nor children can function on limited sleep. I can help you to implement the foundations needed for happy, well rested little ones. Getting little to no sleep is not something you have to ‘put up with’ and doesn’t have to be ‘part of being a parent’. Sleep training has come a long way since the ‘cry it out’ method was used. We can improve both your sleep and the sleep of you little one using gentle, no cry techniques, enabling you to tend to their needs whilst teaching them independence and providing safety and security.

My highest recommendations and love for Emma! She was my (online) doula and yoga teacher all the way through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. After the birth she also assisted me and my baby with breastfeeding techniques when we were struggling, and since then we have been enjoying every minute of it. Throughout this whole phase Emma has always been there and helped me find calmness, strength and connection to my baby and I’m forever grateful for her professional yet personal guidance ✨

Lucy supported me with several issues related to both my toddler (toilet training, behaviour, adjusting to new sibling) and baby (sleep, weaning) and she was excellent! Lucy was kind, supportive and completely un-judgemental and worked with us to help both of my children with the various issues we’ve been working on. Since implementing changes using her advice and guidance we have both happier and relaxed children and parents! I would completely recommend Lucy if you’re looking for some support.
