Hi, I’m Keri. Having my 2 children was amazing. It was also my biggest challenge. I suffered with PND and really struggled to accept any support or even that anything was wrong. I continued (just) to work full time, supporting vulnerable client groups, with 2 small children for many years until the opportunity arose to take redundancy. I have since retrained as a Breastfeeding Counsellor, Postnatal Practitioner and Baby Massage Practitioner (BA) Hons- Birth and Beyond Educator with the NCT. I am passionate about supporting families to adapt to their new lives and create a community of support around them.
I am a breastfeeding counsellor trained by NCT, and I have also spent 12 months working with the infant feeding team in North Manchester. I can support you and your family with all aspects of feeding. Breastfeeding, formula feeding, expressing, mixed feeding, stopping breastfeeding and introducing solids. I am available at several groups locally or I can offer 1:1 support at your home. Using person-centred counselling skills, listening to you without judgement and offering you evidenced-based, unbiased information to support you to make informed decisions about feeding your baby.
Becoming a parent is a huge transition. Most changes are amazing and deliver such emotions we couldn't have imagined, Love, Joy and Wonderment.
Other emotions can be less comfortable, Sadness, Anger and Guilt.
Life with a baby can feel like an emotional rollercoaster, and that is ok. Working with these emotions can require the right tools and support.
