    Facts, not fear-mongering!
    29 November 2019
    Format: Kindle Edition
    This book was bought for me upon the birth of my first child and I honestly would have been lost without it! It has saved me from many a panic attack, the internet just gives so many horror stories when you inevitably look up anything playing on your mind regarding your newborn whereas this book gives straight up factual information without the fear mongering! Would definitely recommend 🙂

    A book to have at hand to inform and often reassure anyone involved with the care of baby

    It has been the most wonderful experience for all of us. Her philosophy of supporting the whole family and her constant care & love for our baby has been a source of real joy. She has made the unique and special time with a new baby easier, calmer & more restful than I could have imagined.
    With a wealth of experience & kindness Maureen has helped me with sore nipples, blocked ducts & milk supply. Her positive support, humour & warmth have contributed immeasurably to the sense of achievement we all feel.

    Our baby was born premature at 32 weeks because of some pregnancy complications and he spent his first 68 days in the neonatal unit of the hospital. When he finally came home he was still tiny (2.4kg) and almost unable to feed, given he had been tube fed for so long during his recovery.
    My husband and I were so relieved to have him home but were equally exhausted and scared by the idea of having the responsibility of this little fragile baby.
    Maureen was just the perfect person for the task. She is extremely prepared given her experience and her interest on the subject. She keeps herself informed reading, studying and she even wrote a very useful book which she constantly updates. She just loves newborn babies and she highly respects them.

    If you are pregnant or a new mother, you have to get this book. I bought it for my niece who is having her second child. She said that her life would have been so much easier if she had this book for her first one. It’s full of priceless advice and information.

    Given that our son was a special case having been born at 27 weeks and spent 3 months in hospital with stomach complications and two serious surgeries, we were fairly anxious about his home-coming and how things would be once out of the hospital. With Maureen with us, Gabriel adapted very smoothly to being home. Maureen was a very reassuring and good guidance for all his cares (feeding, bathing, sleeping, medicines etc) for his first month at home.
    Gabriel is now on a very good schedule for him, feeds very well and is already sleeping 8-10 hours at night at 8 weeks of age (equivalent). I truly believe that this is the result of the time spent with Maureen establishing his feeding and sleeping pattern with us, and making him feel very secure in his home environment.

    Maureen is a “one in a million” maternity nurse and by far the most experienced, kind and supportive person we could have ever hoped for to help us care for our darling baby girl, Lily, who was born 5 weeks early by emergency Caesarian. Maureen arrived with us when Lily was 1 week old (I had been in hospital for the first 5 days). We had specifically requested a Maternity nurse who had the rare qualities of also being a midwife and with pre-term experience. We soon discovered that we could not have been more fortunate in having Maureen help us. We have never met anyone who seemed to understand babies so well. Maureen has a wealth of experience and in addition to her years working as a midwife has also held senior nursing positions in neo-natal units and intensive care. Therefore, she could not be better equipped medically to look after babies and new mothers (particularly those who have had complicated births or Caesarians). In addition, she is a mother and grandmother and, therefore, instinctively understands and empathizes with mothers and babies’ needs on emotive levels too. Thanks to Maureen’s gentle and dedicated approach Lily is a very content baby. Through her wisdom, sense of humour and kindness Maureen empowered me as a mother and helped me truly understand and enjoy motherhood in a deeper and more confident way, for which I am extremely grateful.

    My 3-month old daughter had been refusing to take the bottle for weeks as I wanted to switch her from breast to bottle and I was getting extremely stressed and depressed about it. That’s when I decided to get the help from a maternity nurse and hired Maureen. Maureen was extremely helpful in dealing with the situation: she was very calm, re-assuring with my daughter and she managed to get her accept the bottle after just a day. My daughter then took the bottle more and more easily. She also gave us useful advices to help my daughter sleep better through the night. She was very supportive of me as I had difficulties giving up breastfeeding. On top of having a lot of experience as a maternity nurse and understanding issues very quickly, Maureen has a great personality: she is calm, very friendly and integrates herself very well within the family. My 2-year old son really liked her. She has the right balance of giving advice while respecting the parent’s choices.

    Congratulations to the wonderful Maureen Gannon on the publication of her new book. ‘The Survival Guide for new Parents’. Maureen is an amazing practitioner with a holistic approach to childcare.

  13. Emmanuelle Dotezac Court from London

    My daughter was very distressed before Maureen arrived and screamed 3 hours per day. Thanks to Maureen outstanding understanding, knowledge and love of babies, my daughter stopped crying three days after Maureen was there and slept through the night. Maureen approach is very natural and respectful of the baby and the mother. She follows the natural sleep/eating pattern of babies and thanks to her wonderful approach my daughter slept twelve hours per night at 11 weeks. Ever since Maureen arrived, my daughter is nothing but smiles and bubbling. Maureen ethic and standard of work are very high and her experience is very strong. She is familiar with any situations thanks to her experience in hospital and as a maternity nurse. Furthermore, she carries on research and constantly updates her knowledge of babies. At home she has always been discreet and respectful of the family and has been helpful in our day-to-day life. She would always explain me what to do with my baby daughter so that I felt confident when I was on my own with my daughter. We will miss Maureen a lot and we have asked her to come and visit us on a regular basis. There is no word to say how Maureen is fantastic, thrust wordy, intelligent, loving with babies, knowledgeable, respectful. She just was able to help us change our little baby from a distressed baby to a very happy and bubbly baby!! We would highly recommend Maureen; she is the best thing that can happen to a young family.

    Maureen had been recommended by very close friends of mine, and my husband and I were indeed very happy and grateful to have her the first month our baby came home: Her approach is very much baby-led. Given that our son was a special case having been born at 27 weeks and spent 3 months in hospital with stomach complications and two serious surgeries, we were fairly anxious about his home-coming and how things would be once out of the hospital. With Maureen with us, Gabriel adapted very smoothly to being home. Maureen was a very reassuring and good guidance for all his cares (feeding, bathing, sleeping, medicine etc) for his first month at home. Gabriel is now on a very good schedule for him, feeds very well and is already sleeping 8-10 hrs a night at 8 weeks of age (equivalent). I truly believe that this was the result of the time spent with Maureen establishing his feeding and sleeping pattern with us, and making him feel very secure in his home environment. We cannot recommend her highly enough and should we have another child, Maureen will be our first call!
