Nikki Smith’s

Earthway Approach for Families

My intention both as a Maternal Child and Family Nurse and my experience as a mama of three, is to provide you with professional guidance and expert support so that you can better understand and nurture your baby or toddler in their first five years, empowering you as parents and as a family on your gentle parenting journey!

What is the Earthway Approach? Is it Right for Me?

Nikki provides a safe space for ALL families no matter where you are on your unique journey.

Welcome! My name is Nikki Smith, I am the founder of the Earthway Approach and mother to 3 beautiful daughters.

I have been a Registered Nurse for the past 12 years with a 4-year hiatus in between so that I could be a mum.  I also have a Post Graduate Degree in Maternal Child and Family Nursing and have been working and supporting families for the past 5 years.

My expert support is in the first five years of early childhood. I have supported families with topics such as, breastfeeding, understanding toddler behaviour, genlte discipline and limit setting, listening time and mother care, parenting on the same page, creating a ‘YES’ home, and crying in loving arms, just to name a few!

I believe that with the right knowledge and support as well as a deeper understanding of who you are as parents and how you would like your family life to feel, you can grow in greater confidence as parents and in turn develop a far more in depth understanding of your baby and/or toddler.

Conscious and Connected parenting starts with you!

8 simple steps to parenting consciously

At times we all feel a little lost, Would you like to feel more supported. 

How you can work with me!

If you answer YES to any of these, I would LOVE to hear from you!

Z

You’ve bought ALL of the parenting books and you really wanted to read them! BUT the one’s that you did actually get to read have only filled you with more overwhelm.

Z

You have ZERO intention to do ‘crying it out’ and believe that infant attachment is crucial to your growing baby.

Z

You would love to have more calmer interactions with your toddler but don’t know how to stop yelling.

Z

You would love more practical gentle parenting tools that you can start implementing straight away!

The truth is, I answered YES to these too and after my own “landslide” into parenting, reading, researching and yes, implementing everything that I share with you I knew that there were so many other families that would LOVE to thrive and not just feel like they are ‘surviving’ and so I developed the packages and workshops below for YOU!
