What our clients say

Due to our modern lifestyles, it is becoming more and more common for new parents to be embarking on the exciting, yet daunting, rollercoaster that is parenthood without the comforting folds of family nearby. In the very first chapter you are introduced to the calm spoken and maternally confident author and midwife, Lois Wattis, via a Youtube video link guiding you through what will become a VERY familiar part of your life….yip, you guessed it…nappy changing. I could not help but carry her soothing voice in my head as I read through this book and draw strength from it as she bestows her gems of parenting wisdom.

Being a mother of two, I found myself wishing that this book had been around whilst I was still pregnant. Drawing from her extensive experience as a midwife, mother and grandmother Ms. Wattis covers the numerous decisions that are suddenly yours to make as soon as your baby enters the world and I must admit that even I learnt a few things that I still did not know despite being a mother of two.

Loaded with practical information and tips, I would not hesitate to recommend this App and Ebook to soon-to-be parents. I would even gift it to my pregnant friends expecting their second child as a ‘refresher’ guide.

“At last! Everything new parents need to know is at your fingertips!”

New Baby 101 eBookReview:
Produced by local qualified midwife and lactation consultant Lois Wattis, New Baby 101 aims to help new parents navigate life with a new baby. It contains an abundance of practical advice in preparation for baby’s birth, as well as caring for baby in the early weeks at home.

I was very impressed by how the Book was presented. The information was concise, to the point and very current. It was easy to navigate to the topics I was interested in. I found the combination of written text, weblinks and videos a great alternative to traditional hardcover formats.

If you’ve ever heard a mum say, I wished my new baby came with an instruction manual….. this would definitely be it!

They say that until you’ve had a baby you can’t understand the impact it has on your life. Well, they were right! When we were lucky enough to have little Jaxon enter our world there was so much to learn and so much we didn’t expect. Having access to the support of Lois Wattis with the Newbaby101 book meant that we never felt alone – and it was particularly helpful for me during the nights when there was no one to help me understand what Jaxon needed or wanted. I now find that it’s constantly at my fingertips – a place where I can check in and reassure myself, or just identify what is happening in the constantly changing life of my son. I only wish I had purchased it before I had him – it would have taken a lot of the fear out of everything and prepared me better for his arrival. I highly recommend the book to all new (and even experienced) mums as it’s a great resource and support.

Thanks Lois – you have been my guardian angel!
