My name is Miriam and i am a qualified Sleep Consultant and Maternity Nurse. I have help many families overcome the challenges while living in as a Maternity Nurse but also via home-visits as Baby Wellbeing & Sleep Consultant.

Miriam came to help us when my baby was 5 weeks old and stayed with us for 3 weeks. From the moment I met Miriam she was so friendly, warm and kind. In the few weeks she was with us she helped us establish a routine for our baby girl and helped to get her sleeping really well at night. She had so much great advice and really knows what she's talking about. Her help was invaluable! She was an absolute joy to have in our house - always so calm, patient, attentive and wonderful company. Miriam has a real passion for what she does, and that totally shines through in her work. She is dedicated, kind, knowledgable and always positive and enthusiastic and was so caring to our baby girl. We miss her already and would have loved for her to stay longer!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Miriam to anyone - she is simply amazing!! :-)
I was on the verge of giving up breastfeeding when Miriam came to the rescue, she observed and corrected my positioning right away which improved my babies latch tremendously. Miriam was so calm, positive and knowledgeable and I cannot thank her enough. My baby is now 4 and a half months and we are still going strong exclusively breastfeeding. Miriam also taught me the technique of swaddling which meant for a better nights sleep for all. Miriam’s help and support was invaluable to us and we cannot thank her enough. We would highly recommend Miriam for any feeding and sleep support.
Miriam is a kind, knowledgable and supportive Baby Consultant. We hired her when we became so desperate for sleep when our son was 8 months old and she had us all sorted and sleeping through the night within a week! She really took the time to understand our concerns and lay out a plan of action that we were comfortable with. Throughout the course of the week she was always available as a sounding board and to provide recommendations/tweaks to the plan - you really feel safe in her hands and that she is acting with the best interest of you and your child, rather than this just being a job for her. I would 10/10 use her again and recommend her to anyone who was looking for guidance with their baby. Miriam is amazing!
Miriam came to work with our family when our daughter was 10 weeks old as a sleep consultant. She quickly established our goals and what we hoped to get out of our time working together, and set out a plan to achieve them.
For example - one of our key goals was to get our daughter to take the bottle, in order to reduce sole dependency on Mum. Despite multiple failed attempts prior to Miriam's arrival, Miriam managed to get her to take the bottle within 24 hours of working with us. Our daughter is now happily able to BF and bottle feed interchangeably. Another goal of ours was to transition our daughter from a swaddle to a sleep bag. Again Miriam worked hard to ensure that this transition was made smoothly and with minimal disruption to our daughter's sleep pattern. Miriam made sure to leave detailed notes on how to implement/maintain the new changes post her departure and was amazing in making sure both Mum and Dad felt confident doing so.
Miriam has sensational emotional intelligence and social skills and knows exactly when to give a family space and when to give them extra support. It is clear for everyone to see that Miriam is a natural with babies and genuinely cares for the babies she looks after. I had absolutely no reservations about leaving our daughter in Miriam's sole care and would not hesitate in recommending her to all of my friend's and family. Miriam is the ultimate baby whisperer and we couldn't miss her more!
Miriam was scheduled to be with our family for 3 months. Due to COVID and unforeseen circumstances she ended up staying with us for 5 months, but if we had had our way, she would have stayed with us forever.
Miriam is - without a doubt - the best maternity nurse in the entire world. She's perfect in every way. You might read this and think no one is perfect, but Miriam is. She's perfect. Not only was she incredible with our baby daughter, she was a rock to my partner and I as we navigated the world of parenthood for the first time. She was nonjudgemental, completely respectful, utterly helpful, permanently upbeat, there when you needed her, endlessly patient, discreet and conscious of our space and a joy to live with.
Our daughter connected with Miriam instantly and the two of them became best friends. You could tell by watching the two of them hang out together that Miriam really loves babies and babies really love her. The love and attention she gave to our daughter was magical and I have no doubt that it has influenced her development enormously. She is the happiest baby and also a great sleeper (Miriam had our daughter sleeping through the night by week 10).
The positive impact Miriam has had on our family cannot be measured. We owe so much to her. I would have no reservations recommending Miriam as a maternity nurse or sleep consultant. She's the best and we will be booking her immediately if we are lucky enough to have another child.
We wish Miriam all the happiness and luck in the world. She deserves it.
