Ruth Monk, Registered Nurse and Sleep Consultant
Hi, my name is Ruthie.
Are you currently a sleep-deprived family with an adorable little one that is challenging you with some settling and sleep issues?
I can help you through this!
I am a certified sleep consultant professionally trained in modern sleeping techniques. I also have vast experience as a registered nurse of over 30 years (specialising in emergency and paediatric nursing) that will help with many of the speed bumps you go through as a parent.
I am an incredibly proud mother of a son and twin daughters and "nan nan" to 3 young grandchildren. I am the eldest of 6 children, and I always had a sibling on my hip, so it became natural to nurture.
Along with my nursing experience, one of my other passions was running the local baby clinic, and for nearly 20 years, I was a wealth of advice and experience for many families.
"Every week she experienced a "pram jam" as families queued for her calm, confident approach to parenting issues and always with a touch of humour."
My experience and advice cover many matters such as sleepless nights, catnapping, crying babies, teething, reflux, constipation, breastfeeding, formula feeding, introducing solids, fussy eaters, sibling rivalry, toilet training, temper tantrums (toddlers AND teenagers).
Each child is unique, and it is vital to understand their individual needs whilst building and strengthening the precious bond between you, the parent and your child.
"My joy is seeing that when children grow and develop, their parents also grow and develop!!"
Parenting can be one of the most joyful rewarding experiences in life, but "hiccups" can occur and who needs the extra stress?
I am here to support you and help develop your calmness and confidence to raise your children positively.
Nurturing and care is not only for your children but for you as well.
