When my baby was only a few weeks old, I was struggling with breastfeeding, cracked nipples, baby blues, no sleep, baby won’t let me put her down to sleep…the list goes on. I was in tears and desperate when I found Miriam, who offered her time to talk to me over the phone and gave her time freely to chat me through the issues I had with my baby and gave me some valuation suggestions which I still use today. I never got to meet her as she was already booked up by someone else at the time, but I would not hesitate to recommend her based on our interactions as she showed kindness, generosity and lots of experience.

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.

Our boy was born at the beginning of the UK lockdown. So we had no real outside help. Miriam set up a weekly call with us (more if we wanted) to talk through any questions or concerns we might have. She helped me understand how to start him on a routine, always listening patiently to us and following our babies needs rather than basing it on generic baby needs. It was invaluable.... it helped us so much and having such a positive and empathetic Miriam on the end of the line was really a lifesaver and meant that our boy was able to learn to settle and fall into a really good sleep pattern early on, giving me more sleep too!

When he was 4 months old we were keen to get him used to the bottle as well as breast as I wanted to make sure he was getting enough milk. I tried hard to get him to take the bottle but he just wouldn’t! Super Miriam came and stayed for 24hrs with us, in that time she taught me so much about his sounds and movements, his sleep and... she got him taking a bottle!

Miriam is brilliant. She helped us so much during a pretty difficult time - the pandemic - we really are grateful for all she did for us and would highly recommend her to all!

Miriam’s help was transformational. I was really struggling as a new mum and had tried getting help from three other professionals without much success. Miriam’s basic suggestions to modify the way we managed our daily routine were different than any other person or book we had tried - and they worked! We got our daughter sleeping 12hrs at night and napping on her own three time’s a day. This gave me the breaks and sleep I needed to not only feel sane but to start to really enjoy motherhood. It was hard knowing who to trust out there with all this conflicting advice and I felt torn between doing what was best for my baby but also felt manageable for me. It was clear Miriam loved babies, and loved my baby. I had no problem trusting her completely as it was obvious she really cared about my daughter and would never push her to do something she wasn’t ready for. Miriam’s approach was all about making sure she was well fed, well rested and she quickly became a much, much happier baby. If I have another baby it won’t be without ensuring I can get help from Miriam again. I am now a very happy mum, with a very happy baby and we both have Miriam to thank!

Miriam was truly a godsend when she came to help us with our new born baby twin girls back in November. From the moment we arrived back from hospital to when she sadly left us 3 and a half months later she was the most incredible source of constant support to me and my husband. Always smiling- her warmth, sense of humour, patience and gentle guidance made her totally invaluable, and I don't think I would have enjoyed those first few months anywhere near as much as I did without her support.

More than anything, it was her absolute love and dedication to the girls which made her so special. I don't think you can find anyone who could have been more engaging and interactive with them both. She clearly adores babies, and each day her knowledge and experience became apparent in so many ways. More than just a 'maternity nurse' Miriam invested so much time getting to know us as a family, and how we wanted to approach parenting. She really listened to us and gently suggested techniques, rather than pushing or enforcing anything we didn't want to necessarily do- this way, we gradually built up the the confidence to do things that worked best for us as a family, and also most importantly for the girls.

From the early days, she worked with us to implement a successful routine allowing us to have some very much needed 'us time'. The routine is still working for us today, and they are sleeping through the night (and have been for the last few months) which is a serious game changer! She also really helped me with breastfeeding, something that I really struggled with at the start, and made sure I rested at the right times, drank and ate well, and more than anything enabled us both to get a good nights sleep.

Initially the idea of looking after two babies at once on my own seemed an impossible and overwhelming task, however with Miriam's guidance she taught me methods for feeding, bathing and playing with the girls that I now do with ease and confidence- something I know I also have Miriam to thank for.

Ultimately, if you are looking for a maternity nurse, I can honestly say don't settle for anyone else but Miriam. She is truly wonder woman and you won't regret it!

Miriam joined us when our son was just over 2 weeks old. He was not breastfeeding at all and we were getting desperate by the day.
She helped him latch on the very first day she joined. By the end of that week, our son was breastfeeding and was having significantly more breast milk than before.
She is very good with new born babies, very warm, happy and engaging with them. She is knowledgable and very organised herself. She organised our son’s room, introduced a structure and routine for the day and the night. She gave us a lot of info, helped us organise our lives around our new born, trained us on many things like giving him a bath, changing nappies etc. And also took care of my wife, by making sure she was drinking plenty of water and eating well too. She advised us on ways to increase milk supply, on different products and helped us keep calm when things didn’t go to plan. And generally gave us lots of good tips and info.

We are sad Miriam is off to help another family but equally happy that another family gets her warmth, love and professional help. She takes her job seriously and goes the extra mile. We will be keeping in touch and we hope she will be around to help when we need her! Which I am sure we will.
