Parent lead with a person centred approach

Parenting is not linear, it takes growth, it takes time, it takes nourishment & greater learning.

Thank you for being here, my name is Nikki Smith, I am an early childhood specialist a qualified maternal child and family nurse a registered nurse and a mother of three daughters.

My expertise is in baby wellbeing, safe and gentle sleep support, breastfeeding, toddler behaviour, gentle discipline and education on brain development and development in general. 

Another overt passion of mine is mother care, self careand compassion for who you are be-coming and maternal well-being.

My personal and professional approach in suppporting you is as a whole family from a holistic and thouroughly well researched and evidence based perspective.

I believe an essential foundation in better understanding your baby and/or toddler is in developing a conscious awareness around who you are and want to be as parents, this then enables a greater understanding of your baby and/or toddler’s developmental and emotional needs because you have a clearer understanding of your own.

Conscious and Connected parenting starts with you.

There are no perfect parents nor is there a set of ‘rules’ to follow, what I do know is with my experience as an early childhood specialist and as a mother of three daughters with twelve years experience and a truck load of passion is that the guidance and support you seek on your parenting journey stops here!

The one on one person centred approach that I provide delve deeper into the topics that your family would love to know more about. 

The sessions are tailored to your unique needs as a family and are built upon evidence based education and in collaboration with you and your family so that you can leave feeling supported, but also self empowered, with practical tools and guidance that you can always go back to again and again.

My focus is on providing you and your family with practical and gentle tools to support you on your parenting journey.

A few topics that I have supported families with are below;

[

Gentle sleep and settling

[

Education and support whilst on your breastfeeding journey.

[

Gentle parenting tools to facilitate a better understanding of your toddler’s behaviour, which in turn will create self-empowerment as parents and autonomy for your little people.

[

Mother care and self compassion with a focus on maternal well-being.

A holistic approach with evidence based education to support and empower your whole family.

No matter where you are on your parenting journey, together we can dive deep into the trenches so that you can feel self empowered to support yourselves, each other and your children in a holistic, aware and gentle way.

What do others have to say?

Amy Molloy

“I feel far more peaceful and confident in my choices. More importantly, Nikki gave me the tools and strategies to sit down with my husband and get on the same page when it comes to our parenting decisions (love the red, orange, green categories!).

I also just feel far more ‘normal’ – realising that certain behaviours are just my daughter being a two year old and not a criticism of my ‘skills’ as a parent. We’re going to continue to implement all the practices we talked about.”

Carla Versitano

Nikki Smith of Earthway Parenting is an absolute blessing to have walk with you both in pregnancy and after birth. Nikki has all the credentials and skills of a medical-based background which pairs beautifully with a truly nurturing, heart-centred approach to birth and parenting. It’s a rare combination and one that is holistic, practical and well-rounded.

The support and wisdom Nikki has offered both my husband and myself throughout our journey has been truly invaluable. I have called on her expertise and reassurance on many occasions and each time I have been met with complete presence, wisdom, care and clarity.

Michael and Taeyoung Berg

We found our consultation informative, inspiring with great information & amazing tips. We feel more positive about enjoying being parents. After one session we have found it to be quite inspiring, positive, encouraging and hopeful. Now we have a realistic approach.

Daniel Testore

Very helpful, parenting is not easy, (Nikki was) helpful with techniques to help.

Carla Versitano

Nikki Smith is not only a bountiful resource of knowledge on all things birth and baby, but she’s also down-to-earth and grounded in the very real experiences of parenthood. She’s tough and brave and has been through many challenges herself. This means that all of her practical skills accompany a strong sense of empathy and kindness in her approach to working with you.

I am so glad I had Nikki to guide me through these wild waters of parenthood. She steered me to clearer, kinder waters again and again and for that I’m eternally grateful. If you’re looking for support that offers both experience, wisdom and a heart-centred approach then please get in touch with Nikki at Earthway Parenting

Katie Lloyd

Having a third party explaining things to both of us was more useful/helpful thank just one of us telling the other. It helped us as a couple start planning what we’d like to happen going forward.
