New Baby

  • Do you have a new baby?
  • Do you have access to support and advice?
  • Are you confused and stressed about feeding?
  • Is anxiety affecting your enjoyment of your new baby?

We are two Independent Health Visitors offering professional advice and support to enable new parents to meet and enjoy the challenges of looking after their babies and young children.

Sleepthrough was set up by experienced Health Visitors Philippa Forsyth and Karen Mardon in 2009 to help support parents whose children have sleep problems. Since starting Sleepthrough we have become increasingly aware that new parents are having difficulties accessing consistent advice. New mothers are reporting that they do not have a reliable source of information. As Independent Health Visitors we provide parent led packages of care to help increase confidence and enjoyment when meeting the daily challenges of looking after babies and young children. Our advice and support is based on the traditional principles of Health Visiting; professional, researched and up to date advice with easy accessibility and consistency. Our experience enables us to help parents manage the initial difficulties, inspire confidence and most importantly enjoy the experience of becoming new parents.
