What Is Parent Coaching?
Who is it For?

Parent Coaching is just another name for one to one training. It is an opportunity for you to get the help you need in a friendly and supportive way, enabling you to get the results you need quickly and efficiently.

So who would benefit from 1-1 coaching ?

Pregnant women or couples expecting their first baby.
My approach can help you prepare properly for the birth of your first baby, giving you advice and information on all aspects of baby care and equipment, answering your questions and saving you time, money and stress. I am also there for ongoing support so you know you will always have someone trusted you can turn to for help.
Parents expecting their second (3rd, 4th etc) baby
The change from one baby to two is probably the most challenging as you have to juggle everything involved with a new baby, plus the needs and emotions of an older sibling.

You might also be worried about your new baby if you experienced problems with your previous one, so preparation and support will be the key to making things easier this time.

Parents expecting multiple babies
Expecting more than one baby can be as daunting for an experienced parent as it is for a first time parent so preparation, organisation and ongoing support will be vital if you want to gain confidence quickly, and be relaxed enough to enjoy your babies.

I will help you understand what lies ahead, and make sure you have a support network in place for when your babies arrive.

Parents facing a specific problem or emergency situation
I am often called on to help parents who want help when they are facing a problem they can’t cope with on their own.

They may need help with baby’s sleeping, feeding, winding, colic, reflux, or routine, and this is where my 26 years of experience comes in to play as I help you recognise exactly what needs doing, and guide you through the process, offering individualised programmes and ongoing support so the problem is overcome as quickly and easily as possible.

Parents lacking in confidence, or who suffer from , or are worried about, anxiety and depression.
There is so much confusion and pressure surrounding parenting today that it is very common for parents to be worried they won’t be able to cope or be great parents, or that already suffer from anxiety and depression, or indeed, from previous medical conditions that need special attention.

My antidote to this is to listen carefully to the parents, and to provide them with sensible, accurate information and advice. Everything is tailored specifically to their needs and situation, and is all aimed at making life with a new baby easier, safer and more manageable.


Since experiencing motherhood for the first time I have decided that the only thing I am really evangelical about is the invaluable help, advice and support of Sarah Norris. Sarah’s methods, centred around taking each child as the individual they are and figuring out a flexible routine that works for them and their family, are based on a mixture of her years of experience, thorough research into new advances and most importantly common sense

After a difficult birth and a spell back in hospital, I don’t know what we would have done without Sarah. She was incredibly knowledgeable and reassuring from the start and is also very kind. Through a painstaking process of getting the baby used to the breast while feeding with a bottle as we waited for the milk to fully arrive, Sarah helped us establish breastfeeding. It took several weeks to fully establish but I certainly wouldn’t have been able to do it without Sarah, her patience, advice and creative use of various pumps and props”

Sarah honestly saved my sanity and my health. My 5-month-old son’s sleep patterns had got so bad that he was up every 15-30 minutes in the night, and I was sleeping on the floor in his room. It was terrible and I couldn’t see how to fix it. We finally contacted Sarah, and I so wish I would have done it earlier. She was incredibly understanding, non-judgmental and pragmatic in her approach to finding the road back to normality. She provided practical steps in a detailed written plan, but more importantly she was always available by email afterward when I had questions or concerns – so incredibly supportive. Sarah knows babies, and she knows mums too!”
