I have owned and operated children’s nurseries for over 24 years, opening my first in 1993 at the age of 21 years old. After neither of my children slept through the night for their first three years, I decided to research deeper in to child development and everything that can nurture or have an adverse effect on it. This research quickly took the route of sensory stimulation and the first programme called Natural Care was introduced in 2000.
The research did not stop there however, and from using my own natural imagery within the nurseries I began researching the impact of the natural world on development and came across the Biophilia Hypothesis.
Further extensive research on how both this hypothesis and sensory stimulation naturally combined could have a direct positive affect on not just baby’s development after birth but whilst in the womb also, led to the creation of my new programmes – Babyopathy for Pregnancy, Birth and the First Year and Nascuropathy – 1 year and beyond!
I am now an award-winning author, blogger and baby wellbeing expert and was featured in Mother & Baby magazine as ‘The New Routine for 2017’. I am a Reiki Master, Crystal Practitioner and now qualified Aromatherapist as well as being recognised in 2017 as one of the Top Ten Most Influential people in childcare.
I also regularly writes for national publications and am called upon for television and radio for my expertise. 2017 saw the launch of my campaign ‘Routine in the Womb’ raising awareness of both the new and recommended way to know your pregnancy is progressing and highlighting the effects that a mother’s stress when pregnant can have on the unborn baby and ability to carry a baby to full term.
