Here are some of the comments we’ve had recently. We’d love to hear how you found our help and how your little ones are growing.
These classes have been engaging and informative and I’m glad that we’ve been taking them. I feel like we have a better grasp of what equipment is to be bought, and tactics that will be appropriate to put into practice when trying to figure out how to adjust our lives to our new arrival.
(May 2013, Getting into your stride,Jean L)
Eilish is very articulate and I found her class both informative and entertaining. I do feel more comfortable now about establishing routines and understanding the options.
(May 2013, Getting into your stride, Sebastian P)
Class gave me more confidence and background on when and how to put a to baby sleep/routine.
(May 2013, Getting into your stride, Bettina P)
Gave me good things to think about regarding how I will best take care of baby. Good for planning ahead.
(May 2013, Getting into your stride,Lisa D)
Very enjoyable teaching style, very enjoyable and casual. It felt like friends sitting together giving each other tips rather than teacher/pupil relationship. Eilish is outgoing and very welcoming. It really helped me with ideas on how to juggle the day to day life with two and hopefully copy better on a practical level.
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 18m gap, Simone B)
I got lots of useful tips especially on how to cope with 2 plus time to think about the new baby, plus good reminders of how to deal with a newborn. Getting the notes were also very useful.
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 16m gap, Camille V)
Thanks again for the class and for organising the social last week. It was nice to see some of the girls again.
I thought the class was great - you covered a lot of info and it was the perfect prompt to start getting organised with things like hospital bag etc that I've been too busy to think about. I found the tips on managing a bedtime routine for two and also how to make number 1 feel involved when the baby arrives particularly useful.
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap, Katherine C)
Excellent refresher course of practical info. on dealing with baby 2 and the impact on the 1st child. Enjoyed recollecting and sharing baby stories and issues.
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 3yr 4m gap, Rebecca C)
Laid back evening with some good tips for managing a newborn at the same time as maintaining your relationship with your eldest - good to have specific examples of how to manage different aspects of having another child, Thanks.
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 4yr gap, Elissa L)
It was great to take some time out to reflect on how life will change once our 2nd baby comes along. Amazing how quickly you forget what life is like with a newborn. The session was very packed full of useful information :)
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 2yr 1m gap, Lisa C)
Really good class for busy working mums. Topics were all relevant and to the point. Good time for peer support and discussion. It gave me time to really focus and think about my concerns as I’ve not had time so far!
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 2yr 9m gap, Rachel I)
A brief but great reminder of what to expect second time round.
(April 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 2yr 8m gap, Nicky McD)
Great reminder of everything I’ve forgotten from last time, very friendly and relaxed, thank you.
(March 2013, 2nd baby prep class, 20m gap, Abi P)
Very informative in a relaxed and personal environment! I feel I have been empowered to look after my baby. A brilliant course!!!
(March 2013, The Early Days, Mignon L)
We learned a lot of new things to think out and/or purchase before the baby arrives. Thanks.
(March 2013, Getting Ready, Lisa D)
It was a great overview of getting prepared for the birth that covered a lot of things we hadn’t even thought to think about! Very useful.
(March 2013, Getting Ready, Jean L)
Fantastic, practical non-judgmental advice.
(March 2013, Getting into your stride, Rebecca R)
Punchy, non exhaustive and good content that reminds you of some of the essential elements of dealing with a newborn whilst adding practical tips for coping with 2.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr 8m gap Lou G)
A good rapid reminder of all the essentials which really helped focus the mind as to what is to come! It made me focus on the practicalities.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr 8m gap Gemma O)
Practical, well grounded up to date informative, not overwhelming. Really helped me to get ready.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr 5m gap Fiona V)
Good catch up of what it means to have a baby again as well as how to manage two children.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr 2m gap Linda L)
As the birth of my second child approached I was quite anxious how my first would react and how we would cope as a family. This course has been very informative, a great reminder of things we’d forgotten and offered great tips that I hope will ease the transition from 1-2.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr 3m gap Lindsey C)
A super refresher that recapped things that I had forgotten and helped me to consider how the practicalities of daily life with 2 would work. Lots of fantastic tips for ensuring the 2 children get on and how to deal with daily tasks - especially feeding.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 19months gap Emma D)
It was great to meet other mothers with a similar gap who can relate. Also to have a refresher of some of the fundamentals as you forget these so quickly.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 16months gap Laura W)
Although my first baby is only 14 months, I have forgotten most o the preparation involved in having a newborn. Not having had the time to read and learn about everything needed for a newborn as I did the first time around, The Baby Care Co. course was a great summary and reminder in one fell swoop.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 16months gap Miriam G)
A useful reminder of how to deal with a newborn alongside some invaluable pointers on how to make the sibling relationship work, in a friendly environment. Good to meet people in the same situation and exchange pointers on how to deal with potential problems arising. Breastfeeding element really useful as I had forgotten the details.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 5yr gap Kate B)
Great review of baby care encompassing siblings and handling practicalities.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 3yr 4 m gap Carina and Robert)
Good overall recap of the early days and what to do with 2. Hints and tips for bathing/evening time particularly helpful.
(February 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr 4month gap Sarah and Alex S)
Excellent, helpful tips thank you!
(February 2013, Post natal Sleep session, 20wk old Anna)
Very informative and helpful. I wish I had come when pregnant
(February 2013, Post natal Sleep session, 20wk old Daniya)
Great refresher on all the little things I had forgotten, and some good common sense tips on how to deal with two.
(January 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 3y gap Katherine McC)
A really helpful refresher as due to the age gap I had forgotten so many details.
(January 2013, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 3yr9m gap Fiona)
Me and my husband would like to thank Eilish for the very interesting and full of information time which we spend in her classes.
I was surprised of all the little things that you don't think before you are due to have baby. I have been a nanny for many years now and I was thinking that I know most of the things which a mother needs to know, but in Eilish's class I found out that I do not.
My husband found the class extremely interesting and as we all know, very few men have an idea of what’s expected of them them after the baby is born.
I highly recommend the classes and look forward to attending classes after my little one is born.
(December/November 2012, Getting ready,The Early Days, Getting into your stride and Practical Dads class Petia and Vladimir D)
Great refresher course on things I had already forgotten (breastfeeding etc). What I really liked was that the class was organised by age gap. It has been really helpful to share experience/questions with other mums who will be going through the same experience.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 15m gap Camille)
Class was interesting and thorough - covered all the main topics with a good recap of each at the end. It was great getting organised beforehand and also how to help/introduce older child to new sibling.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 18m gap Ellen)
Great to get some practical advice on thinking about how things will actually be when the baby comes as you don’t really do this when pregnant.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 16m gap Eleanor)
Thank you so much for all the advice and support that your classes gave me. They were well tailored to my specific needs and queries and not at all judgmental. I felt free to ask questions that may not have been so welcomed at my NCT classes particularly in relation to feeding which is much harder than I was led to believe by NCT. I went into both my labour and motherhood for the first time with the confidence that I could cope and equipped with some excellent tips for doing everything from sterilising to getting into a routine. I also have a great sense of comfort that I can email or call you with any other queries which is so important to me particularly as I am new to the area.
(December 2012, Set of 3 classes for 1st time mum, Rebecca M)
A stimulating reappraisal and reassurance about coping with 2. Especially liked the reminders about baby essentials and common sense advice on logistics.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2.5yr gap Vivienne G)
Great refresher and some very good ideas that I hadn’t thought of for coping with two. Good opportunity to meet other local mums and I like that the classes are organised by due date and age gap. Especially liked reminders of life with a newborn and good ideas for coping with 2.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2.5yr gap Shannon L F)
A great quick refresher course to remind you of what it is like to have a newborn again and some helpful tips on how to cope with having two kids. It’s given me a lot to think about, mostly in terms of the toddler.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Tia O’F)
This class gave me time to think about having my second child and just reminded me of those early days.
(December 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 3.5yr gap Katie H)
Lots of the right and relevant info. well explained and demonstrated. It was helpful knowing what to face and it was very practical!
(December 2012, Practical Dads class, Michael Z)
Lots of useful information, well delivered. Filled in all the gaps knowledge wise with lots of notes for reference.
(December 2012, Practical Dads class, Emmett P)
The whole course was really interesting, thank you
(December 2012, Practical Dads class, Vladimir D)
Hugely practical. I feel confident and prepared and am hugely grateful for having someone patiently take me through the options and decisions that I will need to take.
(November 2012, Tailored 121 surrogate class, Nick Davidson)
I really enjoyed the course, very simple and interactive. I feel prepared!
(November 2012, Getting into your stride (end of 3 class series), Sandra F)
Very informative and well delivered. Eilish simplifies what appears to be a complicated learning process.
(November 2012, The Early Days, Sandra F)
Really enjoyed Eilish’s approach and delivery! Very basic and easy to understand. I now have much more of an idea of what I need to do.
(November 2012, Getting Ready class, Sandra F)
Very practical and great to meet other mums! Lots of very interesting learning curves on breastfeeding and sleep routines in particular.
(November 2012, Getting into your stride (end of 3 class series), Charlie Z)
Great amount of information but not an ‘overload’. Really enjoyed doing the class to meet other people and network with new mums-to-be. Looking forward to making new friends. It’s a very practical course and that in itself is really reassuring.
(November 2012, The Early Days, Charlie Z)
Great user friendly and practical advice that you can take away and use easily. A good balance of information so that you don’t feel you are suffering from ‘overwhelming’ information overload.
(November 2012, Getting ready, Charlie Z)
Very clear and very informative, excellent. Fantastic information to prepare for motherhood. Really liked sleep/routines as you hear lots of different things and this puts it all into perspective. clear.
(November 2012, Getting into your stride (end of 3 class series), Elizabeth K)
Brilliant! Concise and to the point. Very relevant information and extremely helpful, and great to discuss all topics openly. Thank you,
(November 2012, The Early Days, Elizabeth K)
Excellent, practical advice. Extremely useful and to the point. Thank you so much.
(November 2012, Getting Ready class, Elizabeth K)
Great refresher course on baby care, plus lots of food for thought on how to manage a baby plus a toddler, Thank you!
(November 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Nicolle B)
Great refresher course. Good to meet other mums in the same position. Feel more confident after the course.
(November 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Diddie H)
Lovely lady. Lots of useful tips, Thank you.
I have attended the 2nd baby preparation class on the 7th November. I'm now 26 weeks pregnant and my older son is going to be nearly 3 when baby number 2 arrives.
The class was really good, and full of useful advices. Eilish goes through all the difficult aspects you might encounter when having a second baby.
The class is held in a very friendly environment and I got to meet other mums due more or less the same week as I am. We instantly clicked and we are now meeting regularly with our little ones while supporting each other during this second pregnancy.
I'm glad I've sign up to this class instead of the usual NCT group as it fitted around my schedule and I got to know people that lives around my area.
We went away with some notes nicely printed by Eilish and they will come at hand very soon as a checklist...I have to admit I haven't prepared anything yet for the baby so having some reference will help me a lot.
I will definitely recommend this course to other mums!
(November 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 3yr gap Emanuela R)
Very informative, good perspective from someone with personal experience. Particularly like logistics of sleep and feeds, planning ahead is key.
(October 2012, Refrehser class/2nd baby prep class, 19m gap Matt)
Very helpful refresher and guide for coping with 2
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 15m gap James G)
Great practical advice, really essential!
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 19m gap Annelise P)
Useful reminder of all the things to bear in mind from last time plus the points which will be different with 2.
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 15m gap Claire A)
A good reminder of what to do with a newborn and how to manage with two young children.
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 18m gap Sinead B)
Great way to remind you of things to get prepared for number 2. Also practical, honest advice that will hopefully help in the imminent future!! It made me realise not to take too much on board and go with the flow.
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Emma W)
Great tips on dealing with 2. It was very helpful, good preparation with a great reminder of early days.
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Jenny D)
I most enjoyed the session on coping with two. The class was just like having tea with friends with lots of experience in the subject and lots of tips and advice.
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Gabriela P)
I most enjoyed the session on breastfeeding and how to split time between baby and toddler. The class was very thorough with a huge amount of information covered. I’m now less worried about what it will be like with two!
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Katherine M)
Good practical advice, easy to apply to everyday life with lots of great tips.
(October 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 2yr gap Sarah H)
Very useful reminders about looking after baby and great tips on how to prepare/include older sister/brother. Good practical advice and suggestions, Thank you.
(September 2012, Refresher class/2nd baby prep class, 5yr gap Karen P)
Thanks for the friendly informative and practical advice.
(September 2012, The Early Days class, Rebecca M)
Thank you very much for the very informative class ‘Preparing for the 2nd and coping with 2’. It was full of just the right amount of practical information, as well as the gentle reminders of what there is to think about when you are having a baby. I particularly enjoyed dedicating the time to the 2nd pregnancy and the 2nd baby which is sadly much less than with the first. In addition the takeaway paperwork serves as a super checklist to work with in the last few weeks. Many thanks and I will most certainly recommend to other expectant mums.
(September 2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 19m gap, Victoria Boxall - Hunt)
Just wanted to say many thanks for your class last week. I picked up some really useful tips on managing with two little ones and found it reassuring to re-visit newborn care. The tutorial style was perfect for me - and loved the handouts.
(September 2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 20 m gap, Kerry)
Great round the table chat to get all your questions/worries out, whilst having structured help and guidance on coping with two!
(September 2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 20month gap, Kerry M)
A useful reminder about dealing with a newborn baby. Remembering to pack things for your toddler and not just me when I go into labour! Good Tips about dealing with 2.
(September 2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 2yr gap, Victoria V)
Brilliant - very pragmatic, structured, common sense advice. I feel very well prepared and feel much more excited about number 2s arrival.
(September 2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 13month gap, Kirsty G)
The class was very informative, friendly and reassuring. It helped most by remembering things that I had forgotten, also new tips to get my older child involved in her little brothers life.
(August 2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 4yr gap, Silvia R)
It was a good reminder of what it was like and how it will be different i.e juggling the 2.
(August2012, Refresher Class /2nd baby prep class 2yr gap, Rosie O)
Interactive, informative and personal experience at The Baby Care Company. The course helped me to manage expectations for life with 2.
(August2012, Refresher Class/2nd baby prep class 2yr gap, Kim S)
Very friendly and professional with useful pointers. Helpful reminders of things I’d forgotten and time to focus on this baby finally!
(August2012, Refresher Class/2nd baby prep class 18m gap, Sam B)
Good refresher with good take away notes. Good to actually take some time out and think about preparation for life with 2.
(August2012, Refresher Class/2nd baby prep class 2.5year gap, Jill A)
Very useful to focus on the changes which will take place with 2. Gives ideas for structuring the day, feeds etc, and the class has made me feel more relaxed about having a second child and how it will fit into our lives.
(August2012, Refresher Class/2nd baby prep class 2year gap, Lynne B)
Extremely useful course. Vey informative and bespoke to my needs. Small classes allow for enough conversation and questions.
(June 2012, GETTING READY Class, Michelle K)
The refresher class was relaxed friendly and informative. Good to get a reminder of the newborn basics with helpful hints, tips and reminders.
(June 2012, Refrehser class, 6yr gap, Jane)
The Baby Care Company 2nd Baby Prep course was a lovely setting with open communication, and it was good to be listened to.
(June 2012, Refresher/2nd baby prep class, 3yr gap, Lise)
The refresher/2nd baby preparation course was really worthwhile and worth doing. It has made me think of more practicalities and ways to include Zoe etc.
(June 2012, Refresher/2nd baby prep class, 3.5yr gap, Amanda)
A really positive experience at The Baby Care Company - great to have a refresher and hear the ideas, experiences and insights of the other women too.
(June 2012, Refresher/2nd Baby prep Class 5 yr gap, Domonique)
I found the Baby Care Company incredibly informative and helpful on a practical and local level. The Course really felt aimed at me and what I needed completely easing my anxieties of those last days of pregnancy and first days of motherhood and beyond.
Because Eilish was flexible and able to tailor the course to suit me and what I wanted to cram in the whole session was helpful and I feel able to cope with what my little baby will throw at me! I also feel I have the support there should my babies sleep and feeding patterns become a real problem - I would definitely then be interested in a come to my house service.
I would definitely recommend the course and I would love to hear about any future courses that might be relevant to me.
(June 2012, Tailored 121 class covering baby care, sleep and feeding, Nicole S)
To the point and concrete summary of what to get and how to care for the baby. Helps to make choices and to find your way around all the stuff out there.
The what-to-buy section was very useful and saved us from a lengthy internet investigation (where the internet is inconsistent and you would not be able to ask questions which help you make up your mind). We enjoyed the sleep and routines class because it was a topic we hadn't heard anything about yet, and it gave a lot of insight so hopefully that will work out well in practice.
(June 2012, Getting ready, The Early Days and Getting into your stride classes, Katya and Richard)
Very useful summation of the essentials. Saved so much time I would have otherwise spent reading. It most helped by refreshing my memory on the early days of the new baby and listening to real life experiences of living with two.
(May 2012, Refrehser Class 2 yr gap, Rob)
Very good, flexible, friendly and fantastic information. Feel so much more ‘ready’ now and better placed to cope now.
(May 2012, Refrehser Class 2 yr gap, Claire)
The class gave me the opportunity and time to focus on the arrival of my second baby and I left excited which was lovely.It took me back to the early days with Lily and reminded me of what I needed to prepare for. It reinforced many of the things I’d begun to think about such as ensuring my eldest doesn’t feel left out and when to move rooms etc.
(May 2012, Refrehser Class 2 yr gap, Victoria)
The Baby Care Co. gave me really practical, thoughtful advice and support with great ideas and info. for coping with 2. I was given some great tips I hadn’t thought of and it made me more confident about what I’ve done already and where I am heading now.
(Feb 2012, Refrehser Class 2.5yr gap, Emma)
A practical, efficient way to get information without taking ages - a good reminder of what the first bit is like when it’s all forgotten. It makes it more real and got me thinking about practicalities.
(Feb 2012, Refrehser Class 19m gap, Katy)
Great practical refresher course that covers basic reminders on care but also good pointers on managing with 2.
(Feb 2012, Refrehser Class 22m gap, Catherine)
Very informative, relaxed and easy to learn class in a nice environment. The class opened up new ideas and it was easy to voice concerns
(Jan 2012, Getting Ready Class, Verity)
Great experience at The Baby Care Company - fun, informative and a good way of learning. Felt more confident after doing this class. Hugely helped in preparation for life with my baby - I just need my husband to do a course now!
(Jan 2012, The Early Days, Verity)
Very informative, good preparation for how to care for a baby - the things you may not automatically think about. Allowed my partner to get more understanding about what to expect. Also to make you think about what to expect after birth which you may not previously have thought about
(January 2012 - midwife with partner, The Early Days class)
Very informative - informal but intuitive, friendly class. Has helped me very much in preparation for life with my baby - received so much useful information I wasn't aware of.
(January 2012 - Dad to be)
"Eilish/The Baby Care Company gave us some really useful hints on getting our baby started into a routine, reinforced by clear hand-outs which summarised what we had been told."
(Dec 2011, 121 post-natal consultation)
Really relaxed, open environment. It's given me more confidence that I have the right information and know what I should be doing.
(December 2011, Jenny, The Early Days class)
Good, practical advice. Particularly liked the bottle feeding, and the practical bits after the hospital - changing nappy etc.
(December 2011, Christina, The Early Days class)
Very reassuring to understand the items required before the birth, and to talk through the build up to labour. Area on 'partners role during labour' was really useful as this tends to be assumed rather than actually talked about.
(November 2011 - Dad to be)
Class was tailored to our needs - routine element very good. Enjoyed changing, feeding and bathing sections.
(September 2011 - Surrogate parents to be, tailored class)
I really enjoyed your class - thanks for the advice and information
(October 2011, Jackie)
It's very beneficial as the NCT courses are only offered a month or 2 before your baby is born. Enjoyed all of the course as pictures and demonstrations were used throughout and you can ask questions/chat in between. I enjoyed the class a lot as I know a lot about babies but it's nice to hear from a mum's experience.
(September 2011 - Getting ready class)
Lots of practical tips in a short space of time - a bit like best friends tips which you never hear about until you've experienced it for yourself!
(September 2011, Kathy, Getting ready class)
Eilish produced a very helpful refresher course for me. With a 6 year gap and my first child having been born in the USA, it was great to be reminded of what to expect in the UK system and to talk through feeding schedules, breast feeding issues and the main equipment needed - I soon realised that I had managed to forget essentials on my own list. Eilish delivers a lot of information very clearly and in a short space of time and cleverly tailors her course to meet the individual's needs. She very quickly picked up on my needs and areas of interest. Eilish has also very kindly remained in touch and has responded to any post course queries very quickly.
What I most enjoyed was that Eilish provided me with the information that I needed quickly, fluently and in a friendly informative way. Eilish was also completely non judgmental about delivery type and was able to provide a lot of information about all aspects of the delivery, post partum care and anaesthesia on offer in the UK. I also found all the hand outs that Eilish can provide on equipment, feeding schedules etc very useful.
Above all, Eilish really knows her stuff and is a mum herself who I felt brilliantly understood the areas that were concerning me and was very supportive. I knew I was in for a scheduled c section this time for medical reasons but was apprehensive (as my first delivery was a traumatic non c section of a large baby). Eilish was really keen to do the best job she could of preparing me for the big event.
I can honestly say that the c section was a really positive event and all went very smoothly. My baby was even keen to breastfeed in the recovery room and even the breastfeeding is still going well 6 months on. I am very happy that I was able to benefit from Eilish's expertise and ongoing support and can highly recommend the refresher course.
I have done the first 2 stages of this amazing course, "getting ready" and "the early days". It is really worth it, as you get to have 1 on 1 attention about all the questions you have; in a small group; in a comfortable place, which is nice and personal. You get to find out many things about your baby, yourself, birth etc which you may not know... Eilish uses appropriate props to demonstrate and show you things, like to how to hold your baby, how to dress it, how to bath it, what certain things look like etc which I found really interesting. She also gives you notes to follow which you get to keep, show your husband and read about at home. She is professional, well spoken and very approachable. I would recommend these courses to any new mum, as I have found them really worthwhile.
"Eilish's advice has been invaluable to me throughout both of my pregnancies and early motherhood. She always responded with thought and sensitivity to my constant stream of questions - what do I really need to buy for the baby? should I hire a tens machine? does anything ease the nipple chapping caused by breast feeding? why won't my baby sleep?! I was so lucky to have her around and couldn't think of a better person to give ante and postnatal advice."
(Nicky - Mother of 2)
“Eilish has been saviour in the way I have been able to raise my second son. After enduring numerous difficulties with my first child, mainly relating to a poor sleeping pattern and difficulties in feeding, I was very nervous about having a second child. Eilish was invaluable from the start when I had a terrible pregnancy involving severe Hyperemesis right through to the caesarean birth. Later Eilish encouraged and guided me on how to establish a solid routine for feeding , expressing and most of all introducing a simple yet effective routine from day one which fit in with the rest of my family. The latter helped include my elder son into the whole process and eventually made it easier for me to return to my business and career.
The whole experience of a second child has been joyful, fun and relaxed for myself and my husband - a total contrast to the first!! I firmly believe that this is due to the support, practical advice and patience Eilish has provided. I would whole heartedly recommend Eilish to all my friends, family and colleagues and can say without hesitation that I could not have done this, so easily, without her.”
(Nisha - mother of 2)
“Eilish was a great support as well as an adviser throughout my pregnancy and our babies first year. She had good suggestions from pregnancy issues, labour options, breast feeding, babies schedule, through to which prams, cot, car seat to choose.
I did not have time to attend ante natal classes instead talking-1-2-1 to Eilish provided a key role in building my confidence as I was very worried about what was going to happen during labour, even though I read a great deal beforehand.
Her suggestion of sticking to a schedule as soon as my son was born certainly made our life easier throughout the year and allowed my husband and I to be more relaxed and enjoy our baby more. Eilish is extremely efficient, confident, very knowledgeable and always willing to help. We would highly recommend her. “
(Zina- mother of 1)
