Testimonials

  • She is great and I found her especially welcoming, helpful and kind. Her kindness and calm manner is just what is needed when you are feeling overwhelmed. I consider myself lucky to have found someone like Claire at a time when everything was so new and overwhelming.
  • Claire was lovely, and made us feel very relaxed. She helped us realise what was normal. With her support our sleep problems improved and she taught us how to deal with any future setbacks ourselves .
  • I got lots more out of it all than expected. I thought I’d learn about how to get my baby to sleep , which we did. But, I didn’t expect all the nutritional information and advice, which was wonderful.
