I wasn’t confident with self settling my baby but I desperately needed to teach her, Trish came to my home and helped me, which worked straight away for us. Trish answered all my questions I had about motherhood as this is my first baby. My partner and myself feel very confident now and in control. We can just put bubs to bed without having to stay up late rocking her to sleep! Feeling great!!

With a 7 month old that had had three hospital admissions in his life and never slept through the night and food intolerances galore…we were at a loss as to how to regain some normalcy in our lives, and become dual parents again to our 3.5yr old as well.  In desperation for a good night sleep and some faith that I actually hadn’t forgotten how to parent, I emailed Trish, the Baby Coach. After a few detailed emails, Trish came to our house and sat with us for 2 hours and did a thorough “investigation” into the the life of our little boy.  She assessed all aspects of his routine, feeding, playing, sleeping (or lack thereof) and gave us some excellent suggestions on how to get things back on track.  Some “cold turkey” changes were necessary but we were happy with that as we actually wanted action.  By sticking to her plan the benefits to us all were immediate.  He started feeding better, therefore was happier and within about 2 weeks was completely self-settling and sleeping 12-13 hours a night plus two naps during the day.  The colour started returning to our cheeks and the dark circles of doubt disappeared.  Thanks to Trish we actually feel human again, and our entire family is more settled, less stressed out.  More importantly we have a bouncing happy baby that is growing better than ever and smiling every day! We would absolutely call on the services that Trish offers if we ever needed them in future and I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Trish at BabyCoach provided us with invaluable advice and insight that allowed us to make huge improvements to both our babies and our own happiness and wellbeing. She is truly motivated by a genuine desire to see mothers and babies thrive, looking holistically at the environment and other factors to identify solutions and steps that will work for our family. Her prompt responses to my many (many) questions and her willingness to be available to help “after hours” and on weekends was very much appreciated. We now have a happier baby and I can enjoy parenthood the way it was meant to be. I only wish we contacted her sooner!

We have a very curious baby, and he wasn’t sleeping nearly as much as he should/needed to be – especially during the day. At 7 weeks we knew we’d all benefit from a routine, but as new parents we weren’t quite sure where to start – but Trish was a tremendous help. She was great with our little guy and explained why and how aspects of a routine would help. At one stage I was almost ready to give up, but Trish was hugely supportive and encouraging – by phone, email and even in person. We stuck with it and now our little boy is more independent and much calmer than before – and best of all, he settles happily into his bassinet (no more sleeping on Mummy!) both day and night, and is getting closer to the amount of sleep he needs! I’ve gained back confidence in what I’m doing as a new mum – thanks Trish for helping us get on the right track.

Thanks,
Pip

Trish has been a huge help to me and my baby girl Emelia.   Trish came to my house when Emelia was five weeks old.  At this point Emelia was crying a lot and not sleeping during the day in her bassinette.  I thought she was colicky as her cries appeared to be for no reason.  Trish advised me that she was overtired and showed me how to rock her to sleep in the bassinette with the aid of white noise.

 

A few weeks later Emelia failed to gain any weight, which I found incredibly stressful as she still refuses the bottle – making it impossible to top her up with formula.  Trish advised me to increase my diet –  particularly my protein intake in order to increase my milk supply.  At the time, I did not realise I had an issue with milk supply, but looking back it is clear that I did.  Emelia was also spilling a lot which was very discouraging as I was desperate for the milk to stay in her!!  Trish’s advice to cut out citrus and kiwifruit from my diet has worked and now her spills are few and far between.  
It has been a very positive experience keeping in touch with Trish – absolutely invaluable to have expert advice when needed!! I would definitely recommend Trish to anyone with a newborn.

Trish came and spoke with my antenatal group when my first born was 5 weeks old. I remember instantly feeling a connection with her, even though I was just one, in a room full of nervous mums. Everything was so new and foreign and Trish’s down to earth approach, mixed with her practical advice, made me instantly feel at ease. I loved her focus on looking after yourself as a mum, and the level headed approach to introducing new routines to our little ones. She was not judgemental in the slightest and you could tell that she genuinely had both yours and your babies’ best interest at heart. I would completely recommend her to any new mum, to help navigate the first few weeks / months of becoming parent.
