As a highly experienced maternity nurse,

I have had the pleasure and privilege of helping many wonderful families all over the world and estimate that I have settled more than 100 babies.

Hi, I'm Lynda

I came to Sleepy Lambs from a childcare background. I trained and worked as a nanny in my younger days.

Subsequently, for a few years, I had a complete change of career and was office-based. After becoming tired of office life, and the office politics that came with it, I wanted to do something more rewarding and more suited to my personality.

19 years ago I retrained as a maternity practitioner (or non-medical maternity nurse). I stay with families for the first few weeks when they have a newborn giving support and guidance with feeding, sleep and settling the baby into a routine I also take care of the baby in the night, so that mum can have some much-needed sleep.

I have had the pleasure and privilege of helping many wonderful families all over the world and estimate that I have settled more than 100 babies (including several sets of twins) into a routine.

I have helped families through the colic and reflux battle many, many times and know first-hand what a struggle and sleep challenge that is for all concerned. It doesn’t matter if the location is Leeds or Los Angeles (and my jobs have been that diverse) the scenario is pretty much the same with a newborn in the house.

The Sleepy Lambs ethos is in keeping with my own method of working, which is gentle, holistic and bespoke to each family.

Through my work as a maternity nurse, I have often thought that this is a service that should, in some form, be available to more families.

I truly believe that if parents were given more information about sleep science and the importance of routine in the early days, there would be fewer children with sleep problems and fewer exhausted parents. This is the reason that I joined the Sleepy Lambs team. The Sleepy Lambs ethos is in keeping with my own method of working, which is gentle, holistic and bespoke to each family.

My specialist area is newborn to 6 months. Still, I am also experienced with older babies and children up to 6 years as I often do “troubleshooting “ jobs in addition to my maternity work.

I look forward to being able to help your family have more sleep!

Success Stories

I cannot thank Lynda enough. I had a baby with very bad reflux and found myself getting so stressed about sleep/naps. Being in lockdown didn’t help either! Lynda was amazing. She was so supportive to me, and some of my friends with little ones. Gave us lots of helpful ideas which were totally adapted to each of us/our babies. An absolute godsend to me as a first-time mum! Thank you, Lynda ????
