Welcome

to our antenatal and postnatal services

A little bit about Sandra Barrett...

I was a practicing Health Visitor for thirteen years, retiring from the NHS at the end of May 2016. My experience of empowering families during pregnancy, the postnatal period and beyond has given me both the knowledge and confidence to support and help to prepare you for the arrival of your baby.  As an Infant Feeding Co-ordinator for the past six years, I accessed additional training with UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative UK and I trained, supported and advised staff and parents with infant feeding problems and enquiries, as well as successfully project managing the team to UNICEF Baby Friendly Accreditation status.  I have used the Solihull Approach to support parent infant relationships for many years, and I am a trained facilitator for this course and it's 'sister' course - Postnatal Parent Group.

Using the Solihull approach bump2toddler aims to:

  • Support you to build a positive and responsive relationship with your child
  • Promote your understanding of child behaviour within the context of their development
  • Increase your, and your child’s confidence and self esteem
  • Promote reflective, sensitive and effective parenting
  • Give you strategies for repair to maintain a positive and responsive relationship with your child
