Based in Sydney, Mum Friday services the north shore and northern beaches on a face-to-face basis.
Mum Friday offers a variety of services, recognizing that no two mums and their needs are the same. You can see details regarding consultations and fees here.
Early motherhood can be tough: not only is it exhausting, but you’re expected to achieve an awful lot without any prior training. You have to survive on broken sleep, figure out how to breastfeed, plus interpret your baby’s cues – which come at you around the clock. As well as this, you have to sift through a stack of advice and figure out how to make it work for you.
Oh, and you’re supposed to shower and feed yourself, right?
If you’re finding it tough, you’re not alone.
Keeping motherhood simple
The Mum Friday service is all about simplifying motherhood and helping new mums really enjoy their journey. I’m committed to supporting mums and their families with great advice and guidance that isn’t confusing or judgemental.
I get that every motherhood journey is unique and you deserve the very best support to enhance and enjoy your experience as well as your connection with your new baby, which sets the groundwork for secure attachment and a strong emotional bond between the two of you.
As a mum of four myself, I get the overwhelm that comes with babies, but I also get the magic that comes with getting to know a new little person.
Things get in the way, naturally. Birth trauma, breastfeeding issues, lack of sleep, stress and anxiety are all things that interfere with enjoying the magic of motherhood. I can help you remove all of that so you can get on with enjoying your experience.
I GET what new mums go through – and I can help YOU
Don’t feel that you have to struggle through early motherhood on your own. Whether your baby is yet to arrive and you’re worried about how you’ll cope, or your newborn is here and you feel out of your depth, get in touch to find out how I can help you master the challenges of early motherhood.
With a range of comprehensive consult packages and intensive follow-up support, you’ll soon be back on track and enjoying more magic every day.
