Some call this week’s guest ‘The Baby Whisperer’ and I couldn’t agree more. Hand over heart, my transition into motherhood would not have been the same if it weren’t for Michelle Jackson. She has been such a constant source of knowledge, wisdom, love and light (with a few f bombs thrown in for good measure!) Michelle is a Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife, Childbirth Educator & Infant Sleep Specialist with over 20 years experience, having worked extensively in both private and public practice in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.
She pretty much knows everything there is to know about babies, so much so that this is Part 1 of the interview, with part 2 coming next week, which will give you the low down on what sleep training is all about. This week is all about Michelle’s first birth and how it couldn’t have been further from what she had envisioned as a midwife. She talks about the difficulties of having a baby in the NICU and her struggle to breastfeed. She is also a mother of 3, which is part of the reason why Parents 2 B, her business, was founded, and covers all aspects of pregnancy including antenatal classes, breastfeeding & early parenting support and sleep & settling consultations both in home & online.
