The New Mummy Company: Spotlight on Business

It is with extreme pleasure to announce the next Spotlight on Business feature!  Welcome The New Mummy Company! 

Let me tell you a little bit about The New Mummy Company.  Owner, experienced sleep coach, breast feeding adviser, twins baby nurse and doula Maria Robertson is a renowned newborn consultant who has been providing expert babycare advice and practical help to parents of new babies, including twins and triplets, for over twelve years.

Basing herself on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Scotland, Maria rose to become one of best maternity consultants in the UK, and a number of prestigious international positions over the last few years have made her one of the most sought after newborn consultants worldwide.

During her career, Maria has constantly kept herself up-to-date with the latest training and techniques available. She has attended conferences and read numerous scientific papers published on various aspects of baby care – including sleep coaching, breast feeding and multiples.

This has led to her becoming an international authority on postpartum support, including advising parents of newborn babies on ways of establishing sleep and feeding routines. However, Maria’s in-depth knowledge and experience are not the only secrets of her success.  She also has attributes that cannot be taught in the classroom, such as:

  • Her natural ability to inspire confidence in a new mother, and to coach without coming across as overbearing.
  • Her uncanny intuition, which enables her to sense a baby’s needs.
  • Her ability to be pro-active and fix any small problems being experienced by new parents and their newborn baby(ies), be it with feeding, sleeping or routine. And to do so before these problems escalate.

Maria’s presence in the home of a newborn is enriching to any new mother, as well as to all other family members.  It is no coincidence that her delighted clients comment that she left them not only with a contented baby, but also with a contented family.

Due to the overwhelming lack of support available for both newborn multiples and their parents, Maria identified early on in her career the need for a specialist in this area, and her skill set meant that she was highly qualified to deliver a professional newborn consultancy service.  And now she is able to bring her proven specialist postpartum services to parents of twins and multiples in Canada.

Having provided hands-on help and/or advice for over 23 sets of twins, she has experienced everything that multiple care can throw at you. Moreover, she thoroughly enjoys both the challenges and the rewards which she encounters when supporting a family through this special time.

Although Maria, or any member of her team of professional baby care specialists , may only spend a short time with you and your newborn(s), this time will undoubtedly prove to be extremely precious to you and your family. Moreover, the New Mummy Company keep in contact with families they work with, assisting and advising them as their babies go through the key developmental stages.

Parents who have received help from Maria and her colleagues say that they are envied by other parents, as their infants mature into excellent sleepers, great feeders and well-behaved, contented children. And they attribute this success to the sound start in life made possible by The New Mummy Company.

For more information on Mara, her services and fantastic information, check out her website at The New Mummy Company.   Her contact page can be found HERE. If interested or know someone who may be, don't hesitate to drop her a line. She's a wonderful person with a kind heart. She's also been known to be called Maria Poppins!  Too cute!
