The Nurture Pad Approach

Nurturing in Pregnancy & Beyond

Hello, we are Jen and Simon, and we have formed The Nurture Pad to help make your journey through the early days of pregnancy and parenting more fulfilling, happier, and ultimately, easier.   


We are here to support, guide and be a trusted, and reliable source of information. With loads of experience working with Mama's, babies, families and partners, we can confidently respond to your needs in pregnancy, birth, the early days of parenting, and once you return to work.


Right from early pregnancy, your role as a parent adds a new dimension to your life. With fun, excitement and new aspirations, the impact of your new arrival cannot be underestimated.  Parenting can be joyous, awe-inspiring and one of the most fulfilling experiences.  It can also be challenging, confusing and not quite how you thought it would be!
