...every single one of these amazing women is here for you.
Quite often new mums tell me they feel there is very little guidance given by the public services, and they don't know where to turn. Building a village around you isn't just having some friends for your kid to play with, it's about creating a support network that can pick you up and dust you off, while making you feel loved,
in-control and confident.
Having working with hundreds of new mums here in Edinburgh, I hear all about their struggles. My number one goal outside of great baby photos is supporting every single women I can in her mothering journey. It has been inspiring to find other like-minded business owners in Edinburgh that feel the same way.
I am recommending every single one of these women to you because:
A: They are truly passionate about what they do and the mothers they do it for.
B: I personally have talked with them about their methods, know that they are aligned with my own best practices, and have heard from my clients who have used their service just how effective they are.
So read below, click the links, listen to the podcast interviews with them, read the blogs, and then if you think they could help you, please please don't wait call them. Trust me they are all so welcoming and genuinely love a good chat about all things baby.
