Some feedback from our last workshop:
All of our sessions are evaluated and the feedback we have received has been extremely positive with 100% of participants saying they would have welcomed the session as part of their health visitor training.
‘Within my role as Infant Feeding Specialist – we have a large volume of mothers worried that their child is not sleeping, often equated to feeding concerns – this workshop has provided me with more in-depth strategies to support families with sleep issues. Lots of interesting research to follow-up and incorporate into my practice.’ D Wilson, Infant Feeding Specialist.
“I recently attended the Millpond sleep workshop and it was one of the best study days that I have ever attended. It has had a huge impact on my clinical practice, as I now have a better understanding of sleep cycles, preventing inappropriate sleep association and how to reset body clocks and feel more confident in supporting parents with children with sleep problems.” Nicki Murray Health Visitor.
“A very well structured programme and clearly presented.” A Gibson, Health Visitor
“After 19 years as a HV, I was quite sceptical about how much I would learn from the day, but was pleasantly surprised – a very valuable day.” M Meddings, Health Visitor.
“A very informative and useful day. Information gained is very relevant to my practice.” J Dann, Health Visitor
There will be two trainers on the day, led by Mandy Gurney, founder of Millpond Children’s Sleep Clinic and co-author of the sleep bible “Teach Your Child to Sleep”, which to date has sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide. Mandy has had over 30 years’ experience as a registered general nurse, midwife and health visitor.
