PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, during the summer holidays, I have extremely limited availability and apologise in advance if I am unable to see you. Video and phone consultations will generally still be possible throughout. Please do still get in touch and if I am not able to help, I can point you in the direction of someone who can.

Early Parenting Workshops

Many parents cite that they feel confused, frustrated and disempowered by the myriad of conflicting advice they receive. Vanessa’s insightful, trustworthy and non-judgmental parenting workshops, allow you to leave those worries behind and feel confident to make informed parenting decisions that feel right for you.

Delivered to businesses, private groups and on a 1-1 basis, topics include looking after a baby and staying calm (!), successful breastfeeding, sleep solutions, introducing solid foods and challenging behaviour in under 5s.
