Libby’s background is as a trained Registered Nurse, Midwife (now non-practicing) and Health Visitor. She has worked for many years in the NHS supporting young families during the adjustment of welcoming a new baby into the family. This is a time of great excitement and joy but can also be quite a daunting prospect at times. Libby is a qualified Lactation Consultant (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) and is passionate in her commitment to support parents to achieve successful breastfeeding by helping them gain knowledge regarding the benefits of breastfeeding and to provide advice and support to establish feeding, in a non-judgemental compassionate manner.
As a qualified Holistic Sleep Coach (ONC level 5) Libby supports parents in establishing good sleep patterns and helping them to manage any sleep problems which might arise with their children (aged 0 – 5years). Libby uses gentle and holistic techniques that protect parent- infant attachment and bonding, build infant mental health and promote parental confidence.
As part of the process of helping parents to enjoy their baby and learn settling techniques, Libby has studied Developmental Baby Massage with Peter Walker at the International School of Developmental Baby Massage and Movement in London and is qualified to teach parents how to massage their babies.
Libby lives in West Sussex with her husband and they have two sons. In her spare time Libby enjoys horse riding, sailing, walking and reading.
