This is where I can help!
As a Maternal Child and Family Nurse, I have developed the Beyond Birth Workshop using evidence-based research, holistic and gentle parenting tools with a heart centred approach. I have supported countless families expecting their first child and even second and third, I believe that my own personal wisdom gained having experienced new motherhood with my three beautiful daughters, and also having studied infant development allows me to support you on your new journey.
I believe that this is exactly what every expecting family needs to know!
Throughout this unique antenatal workshop you will leave feeling better connected as expectant parents and empowered with relevant, practical tools and information as well as much needed insight into bringing your new baby home.
You will begin your new parenting journey with much ease and grace.
I will teach you invaluable skills that you as new parents will be building upon the moment your new baby is born.
I want you to know though, you are not alone on this journey.
What parents need is holistic and supportive education shared in a non-judgmental way. Parents with a new infant need to feel confident in their parenting journey and know that the conscious and connected parenting tools that they are given are research and evidence-based, in the ‘Beyond Birth’ workshop you will be provided with ALL of this, as well as a supportive, safe space for you to come and learn uniquely developed tools for you and your family as you journey into a gentle and conscious parenting lifestyle with a like-minded community!
The Beyond Birth workshop outline
The ‘Beyond Birth’ workshop is a five-hour immersion, supporting you in developing the confidence needed for your unique period beyond birth and well into your fourth trimester.
This workshop will provide you with both the education and tools that are invaluable once your new baby arrives.
You will have developed a sense of empowerment as parents and also as a couple.
You will receive:
- A hard copy of the ‘Infant care & connection’ workbook.
- Printed handouts correlating to each module discussed.
- Light refreshments and tea provided.
At the end of this unique workshop, you will have gained many tools to create an optimal environment for your new baby and family to thrive not just feel like you’re ‘surviving!’
The ‘Beyond Birth’ workshop will leave you feeling well equipped and educated, more relaxed and less anxious in the lead up to your new baby’s birth.
These newly learned skills such as breastfeeding, infant massage and gentle sleep and settling, will develop during our time together and leave you with a sense of awareness, empowerment and connection with your newborn baby as soon as they are Earth-side.
The Beyond Birth workshop will strengthen your connection together as parents and cultivate a sense of self amongst the newborn haze!

I am a mama to three beautiful daughters, I have been a Registered Nurse for the past 12 years with a brief 4-year break to be a full-time mama, I am also a Maternal Child and Family Nurse and have been working with families for the past 5 years.
Having our first daughter more than 11 years ago now and experiencing postnatal depression and depletion ignited a deep passion in me to support families with education on attachment within the postpartum period, I developed a fierce determination to pass on research-based evidence within the fourth trimester and the foundation years of early childhood, this knowledge has been based also upon my own unique experience with our three daughters and passed onto countless beautiful families within the past 5 years!
In saying all of that, I know first-hand the many challenges and also joy that you can, and will feel in any fleeting moment and I can’t wait to share this beautiful journey with you!
What do others have to say?
“If there is ever a course that parents should take, this is the One! As First time parents we were entering the unknown. However, after completing this course we are now knowledgeable and confident in our journey ahead. This course differs from others as it has a very open relaxed approach and most importantly it covers postpartum, an area not often spoken about, but so important. Thank you Nikki for enriching our lives and the future of our children’s lives.”
“This course is unmissable for parents-to-be who seek to be informed, empowered and excited about their journey into parenthood. Invaluable knowledge and experience are shared with a real focus on the needs of the group as well as covering a host of important topics.
My husband and I looked forward to every class and he felt valued and included in the process which was so important for us. Nikki has a gift for imparting natural wisdom in a completely accessible and open way.
Such a positive experience. I highly recommend this course. We now feel prepared, informed and excited about what’s to come. All our thanks, Nikki.“

“Nikki is the real deal – down to earth, genuine, approachable and so knowledgeable about conscious and connected parenting. She walks the talk but doesn’t pretend to be perfect. I have enjoyed all of our interactions and correspondence, and value her advice.“
“Nikki is so nurturing, informative and just overall lovely. I love the course she has for new families as I feel it’s something that is so needed and so many families will benefit from. Will be recommending her course to everyone.“
“The best pre-parenting course I think I could have ever done. Absolutely amazing. I have learnt so much from Nikki and feel grateful to have been able to go. Thank you 🙂“
“Great opportunity to step away from the daily grind to invest some time in preparing for parenthood. Helped me mentally process what is about to happen 🙂“
“Nikki is all about empowering parents to trust their instincts, their bodies, and their baby’s cues. To be told that it’s ok (and preferrable) to go with the flow each day, and listen to your heart as a parent is truly refreshing, especially when there are so many books, well-meaning friends and relatives, and websites that want to tell you otherwise. I was fortunate enough to attend one of Nikki’s workshops, and it was a great decision. Now I have learnt that meeting my child’s emotional needs is the absolute best thing I can do as a parent.
Thank you so much for helping to build my confidence as a mother, and also for showing me the little ways that I can nurture my child into an equally confident adult.”
“Being a first-time mum I wanted a relaxed introduction to becoming a parent. Nikki’s class was warm, inviting and informative. She made it comfortable for both my husband & myself. It’s a class that will suit & benefit anyone. Both my husband and I would definitely recommend attending Nikki’s classes xx thanks Nikki”
