More About Charmaine
Cache NNEB Diploma in Nursery Nursing
Childcare and Education
OCN level 3 in sleep training
OCN Level 6 Holistic Sleep Coaching
Paediatric First Aid
I have over 21 years of experience helping and supporting families, and understand first-hand the toll that sleep deprivation has on families. I have worked for many years as a night nanny with newborns and also as a full-time, live-in nanny for many families with small children. My experience working in various roles across early years, including as head of a baby and toddler unit qualifies me to advise on birth up to school aged children. My experience as a mother enables me to advise even further than that! I am a member of the IACSC (International Association for Child Sleep Consultants).
How can I help
I can help with the early weeks following birth, weaning, walking, teething, talking expectations through to expectations on newborn sleep and how to solve sleep issues for babies and children.
I specialise in supporting families with sleep issues using gentle, respectful, evidence-based methods of sleep shaping/training. I will only suggest methods that you and your family feel happy and comfortable to practice. I will never suggest leaving your baby or child to “cry it out”.
