Our Values

  • Gentle Parenting

    We believe that raising children with love and compassion has the power to change the future of mankind. We support gentle parenting methods. We aim to help parents find solutions to problems that suits their child’s individual needs, rather than forcing families into the (often harsh) methods our society favours.

  • Information and Consent

    No one cares more for your baby than you do; therefore you should be the person making decisions on his/her care. We focus on providing education on various topics in our consultations and courses. We also have various resources available including our famous Early Childhood Feeding Guide, email hand-outs and our blog.

  • Support and Compassion

    We know that although you love your children very much, parenting can also be extremely challenging at times. We provide non-judgemental support in our consultations and are always available for telephonic advice, or simply a hug when needed.

  • Social and Environmental Responsibility

    Our practice provides free care to Abba Baby House, a community organisation providing a place of safety and care to babies and small children who cannot remain with their families for various reasons. We also have various environmental and recycling initiatives, including our Ecobrick drive which aims to keep tons of plastics out of our environment.
