I’m New Zealand’s Baby Coach, and I help happy parents raise happy babies
A good night’s sleep doesn’t have to be a distant dream. I’m New Zealand’s Baby Coach, and I help happy parents raise happy babies.
Baby consultant & postnatal educator and practitioner. I know right now you might be feeling tired, overwhelmed and confused by all the conflicting information out there. Which is why I’m so glad you’ve found me.
As a newborn consultant, I’ll empower you with the right knowledge and supportive guidance, so you can trust that instinct that already exists within you, and confidently make choices that nurture both you and your baby. My guidance is nurturing, it’s judgement-free, it’s practical and most importantly it is completely tailored to what’s best for you, your family and your baby. My aim is to ensure you feel confident and secure through this new, beautiful journey, so you can stop second-guessing yourself, actually enjoy every moment of these precious months and experience the joy and balance you had expected parenthood to bring. A restful sleep, a settled baby and a relaxed mumma – yes, it is all possible. I’d love to chat more about how I can support you and your family. As a mum, former obstetrics nurse, massage therapist, fitness trainer and passionate advocate for women’s health, I’ve had plenty of hands-on experience providing nurturing holistic advice and support to pregnant mothers and first-time mums. I will walk beside you, helping you nurture your precious new baby, but also helping you take care of yourself in the process.

The Rescue Package

Sleep & feeding support for new parents

Everywhere you turn, there are messages reinforcing your experience of sleepless nights, so it must be normal, right? What if I told you, it doesn’t have to be this way? The Rescue Package is designed to support you in understanding both feeding and sleep routines for your newborn baby, particularly within those challenging first 6 weeks. Helping your baby sleep and feed confidently will help them (and you!) tackle any challenges that they may come across as they grow. I’ve helped hundreds of parents finally – and consistently – get a good night’s sleep. I f that’s something you’ve been dreaming of, I would love to help you, too.

It can be an overwhelming feeling, realising you’re now – or soon to be – in charge of a tiny human being. But, it’s time to put those worries and insecurities aside. Mumma, you’ve got this – and I’ll show you how.

Simple Steps To Better Sleep

“Help, my baby will only catnap for 30 min” “Help, my baby will only fall asleep on me” “How do I help my baby sleep better?”
Parents of newborns often struggle with getting their baby to sleep, especially in the first 6 weeks. Babies in the first 2 weeks often feed and sleep lots and I mean lots. This is very normal. Both mum and baby are still getting to know each and the bond between mother and baby is very important. So why after a couple of weeks babies change and have troubles getting themselves of too sleep? It’s because of certain patterns that have been created. Some call them sleep associations but I like to call them patterns or habits. This ebook will help you recognise these patterns and change them gently in your own time.
The ebook will help you recognise why your baby is hard to settle. Give you knowledge and tools to help your baby sleep better. Plus get the sleep you deserve. Did you say you would love more sleep!

Testimonials

Trish came to my place to help me sort out my 4-month-olds sleeping patterns. He was waking up multiple times in the night for no apparent reason and it was not sustainable for him or I and I was becoming sleep deprived and not able to function properly. She took the time to chat to me getting to know the situation and a plan was made. I now have the confidence to know what to do when he wakes and he is sleeping really well and a much happier baby because of it. I cannot recommend you enough Trish, you have helped us tremendously. Thanks for being very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable

– Natalie Gribbens

I would highly recommend working with Trish if you have any issues with your babies sleep. From talking with Trish over the phone for an hour it gave us the confidence and tools to help teach our daughter to self settle without leaving her to cry it out. She’s a much happier kid for it and I really appreciate how Trish has gone above and beyond to answer any further questions I do have.

– Sarah Triplow

I had been recommended by a close friend to contact Trish for any troubles I had that were baby related so I did exactly that once my newborn twins were born. Within the first 10 days, my husband and I were having difficulty settling both babies, our little girl in particular. Trish was fantastic! She came over to our place and gave us some great advice and suggestions then put her wonderful knowledge to good use. With the techniques she used on our babies, they instantly became very settled and went to sleep easily. Our twins are almost one month and I am still using Trish’s settling techniques. She has even helped with winding issues that are now under control. Trish has this amazing aura about her that is very calming. Perfect for settling babies! She has given me so much confidence and I feel I can now be the mother I’ve always wanted to be. I would recommend Trish in a heartbeat!

– Olivia Patton

Working with Trish has been so valuable in establishing breastfeeding for my second child. After a stressful experience with my first baby, I decided to be as prepared as possible with feeding my second baby. I found Trish on Facebook and really liked her style- practical, common sense and positive. We had a hospital and home visit with follow up contact at anytime. Trish’s approach was really helpful, especially when you just want clear advice. I’m beyond happy that our son is thriving and have had such a positive experience this time around. Take some time to invest in good support in advance. Thanks Trish!
