Carole Goddard wins Gentle Parenting’s ‘UK’s Most Nurturing Health Professional’ award
This award is sponsored by Weleda and honours a very special individual working within the healthcare and lactation field who has gone that extra mile to provide support and upheld the gentle parenting ethos.Carole, an independent midwife, lactation consultant and tongue tie practitioner with Phoenix Independent Midwives was nominated by her client Gail Gardner, who had this to say:
“Carole was one of my midwives who delivered my baby girl in August. Her approach was gentle and enabled me to have a natural home water birth. Thanks to her patience, understanding and knowledge we have also made it to 6 months exclusively breast-fed. Carole was always on the end of the phone and has continued to be there for me long after the 6 weeks post-natal care ended. She encouraged me to do what felt most natural in a very gentle parenting way – I credit her with the fantastic bond I have with my daughter. I know she continues this approach for all women she sees as a midwife and a lactation consultant.”
Carol said: “I am so proud and honoured to have received this award, having been nominated by Gail (& Freya!). As an Independent Midwife I am privileged to accompany women and families throughout their journey as they welcome their baby. This award sits perfectly with my philosophy of informed choice, empowerment and positivity for birth and beyond”.
