Over the years I have developed an interest in multiple birth children. This started when I was working as a nanny and has very much continued as I moved into newborn care. I will happily care for single babies as well and enjoy helping every family I work with. Whether it is just a few nights to sort out a sleep issue or full time for a number of weeks.

She supported me through the long journey to get both boys on the correct medication and her extensive knowledge of babies and twins meant that I trusted her judgement.
— Mrs. G.
She makes you feel like family right away and I didn’t trust many people with my baby but Mary I did.
— Mrs. M.
Not only is she a true newborn baby whisperer, she also carers deeply about the family unit - mum in particular - and takes care to be supportive of everyone.
— Mrs. P.
Compared to friends with newborns who didn’t have the benefit of Mary, my husband and I had more sleep and our daughter was a calmer baby and in a routine earlier.
— Mrs. W.
