Other Services

There is so much to know about the world of new babies. The early months and years of parenthood are a sleep-deprived, whirlwind for many – but they don’t have to be. 

An Infant Sleep, Babywearing & Breastfeeding Educator – like me – can help you understand and respect ‘normal’ infant behaviour, understand your baby's needs, and importantly, create the conditions that will get everyone through the day thriving (and smiling!).

My additional education packages are below, and I am also happy to customize to suit your needs if you’re looking for something slightly different. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your unique needs – or to set up a free consultation.

I had bed-shared and nursed my darling baby boy on demand, all day and all night, since the day he was born. But after nearly two years of waking up every 2 hours, or more, I was absolutely exhausted and very much missed sharing a bedroom with my husband. I was not interested in letting my son "cry-it-out" and didn't want to do anything that compromised my attachment parenting philosophies. We had previously hired a sleep coach whose "gentle" sleep strategies were nothing more than leaving him to cry himself to sleep and whose "customized" sleep plan was anything but. With the long-term goal of night weaning our son and moving towards independent sleeping, Kate worked with us on ways to slowly make this transition in a way that we felt comfortable with.

I could write page after page about what an unbelievably genuine, caring, down-to-earth woman Kate is. She is smart, sensitive, thoughtful, real. She gets it. She is a mum who is walking in my shoes.

I wasn't just a client to her. She took a vested interest in our family and provided us with the most thoughtfully personalized plan and truly helpful resources.

I didn't feel judged or intimated. Kate made me feel supported, appreciated and hopeful. She helped me see the light at the end of my sleep deprived tunnel and she has held my hand all the way through it. I would recommend Kate to any family in a heartbeat. She is a very, very special person."
