I'm a qualified Norland Nanny and Night Nanny, with 25 years baby experience.
My name is Caroline and I am a mum to three gorgeous boys aged 6, 12 & 14. They keep me on my toes but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
My family and I have recently moved from Surrey to Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
I graduated from the world renowned nanny school, ‘Norland College’. I have over 20 years experience in childcare having worked as a Doula, nanny, night nanny, sleep trainer, maternity nurse, and nursery nurse.
WHY CHOOSE ME
From an early age I knew I wanted to work with children. As a mother myself I understand how hard it can be sometimes. I’m down to earth, friendly and caring.
The first few weeks of motherhood can be a joyous and exhilarating expereince; however the reality for many families is that it can also be a busy and tiring time. I understand that every family’s needs are different and sometimes you just need a little guidance.
As a postnatal doula I can enable you to enjoy the early stages of motherhood by relieving some of the stress. Drawing on a wealth of experience, I offer emotional support following the birth, as well as practical help around the house.
I can offer other services if you are in need of a break and a good nights sleep. With my night nanny experience I can offer this service for a few days, a few weeks, or you may feel you need full-time help getting your baby into a good sleeping pattern. I am here to help and support you in any way you need. (With my knowledge and training I can get your little ones sleeping through the night, teaching them to self settle at an early age. My technique is a gentle method and is very personal to each family.)
My postnatal doula duties include:
– newborn care
– breast feeding support
– looking after the baby while you rest
– cooking meals
– supporting siblings
– grocery shopping
– light housework
