Testimonials

When I first met Simone my 6 month old daughter was waking 6 times a night and would only do short naps during the day. I was completely exhausted. Both my husband and I wanted to change the situation, but we thought our only option was to leave her to "cry it out" and neither one of us wanted to do this. I talked to Simone and read the testimonials on her website, and decided it was at least worth a try to have her come in and see if she could help. My husband was very skeptical but I insisted that it was necessary — I was at my wit's end!

Simone was an absolute life saver! From the moment she arrived she was confident and clearly very knowledgeable, but she was also understanding and caring. I very quickly realised that not only was her advice sensible and helpful, but even more importantly, it was obvious that it was going to benefit my daughter.   By the end of our time together Simone had given me the information necessary to start a routine. I was nervous but gave it a try.  Within 24 hours we started to see significant results, and after 48 hours my husband admitted that he had never been so wrong about someone or something in all his life!  

We now simply refer to Simone as the miracle worker.  She has literally changed our entire lives; I have always loved being a mum but thanks to Simone I am able to enjoy this special time with my baby so much more. I honestly could not recommend her enough!

We'd seen your videos on Youtube so when I saw you on twitter I thought perfect! Your daily tips were great so we thought if anyone could help us with getting the boys to bottlefeed it would be you. We'd be trying ourselves for 4 weeks with no real progress. We'd tried all the usual avenues for advice but got nowhere. Neither of us could believe that in a matter of hours both boys were guzzling from the same bottles they'd been rejecting for weeks. We expected help with the bottles but by the end of the day we had a whole new routine for the boys and lots of great advice on a whole range of things. It was like a crash course in moving our babies onto the next stage. Thank you so much , I'm not sure how we would have managed without you. It certainly wouldn't have been as painless. I hope anyone who is in the same boat doesn't hestitate to give you a call.

I Can't tell you how grateful I am for the advice! I think every mum should be following you

Simone has been like a miracle worker after both my first and second daughters were born. After the first (rather difficult) birth, my husband and I were somewhat shocked and unfamiliar with everything like so many first time parents.  We spent two weeks of little sleep and lots of worrying before Simone arrived through the door full of confidence and competence. She took us (all three) in hand and within hours had made us feel relaxed and able to enjoy the situation. She taught me to feed more confidently, to bath the baby and so much else besides. For the first time since the birth, we all really got some sleep. To my husband's joy she also seemed able to find time to cook and manage so much else besides. Truly outstanding. Which is why with our second daughter, there was no question we wanted Simone to help us out again.

Thank-you 'Nursey-Do' / Simone! Being a new mother, in a foreign country away from my family and friends was an exhausting, overwhelming and confusing experience, that is until I met you. You empowered me as a mother and helped me start to very much enjoy what is an incredibly precious experience. Your expertise was invaluable. Thank-you so much.

Simone arrived when our first born, Eva, was two weeks old. I was very hormonal and nervous about having someone come into our home and live with us 24 hours a day for the week, but by the time Friday came, I was very nervous about spending a weekend without her!!! Simone is the baby whisperer - she understands how to make tiny babies (and big babies for that matter) very calm and confident. Within an hour, my fractious daughter was tucked up fast asleep, resting in time for her six o clock feed, and that was the beginning of her routine. Parts of which, are still alive and well in our house seven years on!! Needless to say that, 3 and half years later, when the pregnancy test was positive, Simone was the second person I called - I couldn't risk having a baby without her!!! She instills a confidence into parents so that they can enjoy their newborn in a relaxed way without that fear of the unknown.

Simone, not only looks after the baby, but she also looks after mum - she does everything for the home and any other big siblings, so that mum can rest and enjoy those special first weeks of the baby'e life. I was often sent to bed for the afternoon, to be woken up with one of her special smoothies. She is great fun to have around and is full of tips and advice on navigating those early days of life at home with a baby.

Simone remains a very important part of our family, she still comes to sort out my now big babies, but always with a sense of fun and lots of energy, and absolutely no fussy fussy!! I would say that Simone is the ultimate luxury - if she could bottle it, she'd make a fortune!

As an older first-time mother, I was really rather anxious about the arrival of our first child as I hadn't had much experience with babies or children. Thankfully I was recommended Simone who came and trained and prepared the whole family for our baby. Simone is just amazing to put it simply. Before baby's arrival she gave me some brilliant guidance on what to expect and also an invaluable shopping list to prepare for baby's arrival. Once our son was here, her 20+ years of experience shone through the minute she walks in the door. From my arrival home we were nurtured and cossetted as well as guided in the best ways of feeding, bathing, establishing a sleep routine, feeding and travelling with baby. Additionally her presense means you can get some much needed rest which benefits baby, Dad and everyone in the house. Simone is not intrusive, gives you and your partner plenty of space and also gives you a "practice session" when she leaves each weekend. I defy anyone who says they are not counting the minutes until she returns on Sunday evening. As your time with her progresses, you realise you have a true friend and genuine support in Simone. This comes at a time when your whole life is changing. For this aspect alone, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simone as your maternity nurse. Her practical skills are excellent but her pastoral care is what really defines her and sets her way ahead of any of her contemparies! Even now as my children approach school and toddlerdom she is still helping, guiding and supporting. Thank Heavens!!!

Simone came to us after the birth of our second child, Jemima in January 2011. She was with us for three weeks. It was a wonderful experience. I cannot list all the things that she did for us, but they included caring for Jemima, shopping, cooking tidying and doing the laundry. She helped set up the nursery and the playroom. She was very helpful about feeding, routines, including how to adapt times like bathing to accommodate both children. She also helped us to get on better at mealtimes with our picky 3 year old. She gave us excellent weaning advice. She left us more confident parents and with more settled children. She has huge energy and drive and a real knack with babies. She is also very tactful and lots of fun to have in the house. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

Some new mothers might look back at those first few weeks and months of motherhood as a blurr of anxiety and sleepless nights. I look back at the joyous arrival of our daughters with nothing but love and laughter, and that is entirely due to Simone's never ending support, great humour and invaluable advice. Get aboard the Nursey bus!

We often say to our friends that having Simone was the best money we ever spent. She has helped us with both our children - our first was premature and quite ill when she came home. I don't think I would ever have got out of the house if it hadn't been for Simone. She gave me such confidence in dealing with a tiny and poorly baby and her routines work brilliantly.

I contacted Simone at the end of my tether as my newborn was neither feeding nor sleeping! Simone arrived the very next day thankfully and soon set about calming me down and finding out what was going wrong. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel that there was light at the end of the tunnel. My son instantly took to her too. Simone is warm, funny and intuitively knows what questions to ask and what advice to give. Since then Simone has been a constant source of amazing tips and more specific advice. In fact if it wasn't for her knowledge we wouldn't have had a diagnosis of silent reflux. I have told my husband that there's no way we can have another baby unless nursey can come and help us. I highly recommend her.
