Hi, I'm Tracey and I live in Hampshire with my three children. I have a slight Dairy milk addiction and hate the film ET (sorry I don't know why)
I originally trained as a nurse over 20 years ago (I know I don't look old enough 😉)
I specialised in oncology and palliative care before moving out of hospitals and working as a practice nurse and community nurse.
A natural progression for me was working with children and worked in a nursery and pre-school before retraining as a baby massage & yoga instructor and infant sleep consultant.
I've done loads of courses, including baby and toddler sleep, child attachment, weaning, colic and reflux, breastfeeding, child development, counselling, baby massage, baby yoga and tummy time.
And have years of experience working with children under 5 and their families.
When my first daughter was born I was 25 and had no mum friends, my Health visitor suggested I took her to a baby massage class. I reluctantly went along had no idea what to expect.
Well let's just say I hated it, right on cue my baby screamed as soon at the teacher started talking and this continued throughout the class.
I felt like a totally rubbish mum. I left the class saying goodbye see you next week with no intention of returning! The teacher called me at home to check in with me and persuaded me to return, I was so taken aback by how kind this lady was that I went back. Over the weeks my baby cried less and I found myself actually enjoying it. She started responding to the cues and I felt much more confident in my ability as a mum.
My second daughter and son were terrible sleepers - bloody awful. The lengths I would go to to get them to sleep, seems ridiculous looking back now. I was anxious, confused, dreaded bedtime and felt so guilty. I'm a mum, second and third time mum, I'm a nurse I work with children why couldn't I figure this out on my own?
Eventually I got help and so pleased I did.
My experience of being a perfectly imperfect mum is what brought me to retrain and start my business.
So other mums don't have to struggle getting their babies to sleep the way I did.
To be that nice, non judgemental lady who runs the baby class to encourage mums to come back each week.
I can honestly say I love what I do, I feel honoured to have worked with hundreds of parents who trust me to help and support them.
