I first learned about attachment parenting and natural parenting from my own parents – I had a natural, calm birth, I was constantly carried in a sling, I wore cotton nappies, and I breastfed until I was 2 ½ years-old. I developed a close, loving relationship with my parents.
I then went on to study attachment parenting. At university, I did my degree in Child Psychology and I studied the benefits of attachment parenting, continuum parenting, and natural parenting on babies’ and parents’ emotional well-being. I also studied Steiner Waldorf early childhood education.
Since graduating from university, I have continued to develop and cultivate my interests in pregnancy, birth, and parenting. I am also a volunteer at Attachment Parenting International as an advocate for attachment parenting.
I have 5 years of experience caring for babies and young children using attachment parenting principles. I have worked in Steiner Waldorf parent-child playgroups, home daycare, nurseries, and kindergartens. And, I have worked as a nanny for families, caring for babies and young children aged 6-months – 6-years-old.
I now provide childcare and family support to families in their own homes, and I continue to develop and cultivate my interests in pregnancy, birth, and parenting.
I live in beautiful Bath with my husband Tom.
