Lactation Consultant and Sleep Practitioner.
Expecting your first baby is a time of great excitement and joy. However it can also be quite a daunting prospect.
Here at Mulberry Cottage Baby Consultancy we aim to provide information and support for expectant and new parents in order to increase confidence and enjoyment in parenting.
Providing services for families in the West Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey area, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, we can help with any concerns or problems with regard to breastfeeding, infant feeding, baby massage and also in establishing good sleep routines.
Breastfeeding is the best way to feed your baby. Breast milk contains all the nutrients your baby will need and has many health benefits for you and your baby. However the concept of breastfeeding can often be daunting for mothers expecting their first baby. Good preparation in the antenatal period in the form of a individual session for mums- to- be and partner, will help you to feel more confident and empowered with breastfeeding your baby when he or she arrives.
Baby Massage is wonderful for babies. Not only is it fun but it also a very beneficial aid to good sleep, relieving the pain of trapped wind, colic and constipation and an aid to relaxation. It is also beneficial for parents or grandparents to help them to emotionally bond with their baby. Baby Massage is Fun! We all use the power of touch to soothe. Mothers naturally commence this immediately after birth by gentle stroking of their babies skin.
Libby Bowyer has developed specialist interest in supporting parents to establish good sleep routines in babies and young children. She has studied at the Southampton Sleep Clinic and completed their Sleep Practitioners Course.
The aim of Libby’s independent sleep clinic is to promote good sleep practice in the pre-school age group by helping parents to establish good bedtimes routines and to provide advice on how to manage any sleep difficulties that may occur.
