We asked Lara to come and help us with our 4 week old son who was suffering from silent reflux as well as wind and constipation.
Lara was extremely knowledgeable putting us all at ease and giving us the confidence in our parenting.
She is above all else passionate about the job she does, helping families and caring for the children.
She put together a realistic and routine for us to work towards, giving advice on feeds and sleep.
We would not hesitate to recommend her.

I called Lara to help with our three month old for a few nights as my husband and I were so exhausted we needed a break. I was slightly apprehensive about employing a mat nurse but Lara immediately put my mind at rest. She is very experienced and knowledgeable and helped us greatly not only with our daughter but also with advice for resolving our 2 1/2 year olds sleep issues. I wish we could have used her for longer!
