Hi, I’m Mel!
I’m here to save your sleep & your nips!
As you may have guessed, Cocoon & Cradle is not your average early parenting support service. Most consultants have training in only one area; lactation or sleep. Whereas I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and holistic sleep coach, in addition to 10+ years experience as a paediatric nurse and midwife. This is how I am able to offer truly holistic care.
By pulling together all the pieces of the puzzle from feeding, sleep and development, I am able to identify the root cause of the issue and work together with you to come up with a creative solution. On top of my professional experience, I am also a mum to two very energetic but beautiful toddlers. So believe me when I say, I get what it’s like.
I launched Cocoon & Cradle in 2020 because I felt there was not enough support and too much confusing and conflicting information regarding early parenthood. To be honest, I was sick of seeing incorrect and sometimes harmful advice being given out to unknowing mums and mums-to-be. Why? Because you deserve better. Since launching I have been able to support hundreds of mums all while focusing on responsive feeding and parenting, and biologically normal sleep.
