MATERNITY nurse Sarah Norris has landed a top speaking spot at the UK’s largest parenting show.

Sarah, from High Legh, has worked with thousands of new parents, including celebrity mum Sienna Miller.

Sarah is one of the country’s leading baby care consultants, and is among a number of high profile professionals who will be on hand to advise mums and dads attending The Baby Show at ExCel London, between March 1 and 3.

Organisers asked Sarah to speak at the event after she reserved a stand to promote and sell her book ‘The Baby Detective: Solve your baby problems your way’.

The book provides advice to parents on how they can investigate and solve their own baby care problems.

It draws on Sarah’s 25 years of experience working alongside new mums and dads as they find their way in the parenting world.

Sarah said: “I’m absolutely delighted and honoured that organisers have asked me to join the line-up of speakers for this fabulous event.

“I’ve given my life to supporting parents with their new-born babies – helping them recover from the birth, assisting with feeds and giving them the confidence they need to establish new routines.

“Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in life but it can also be daunting.

“Sometimes with so much advice available, it can be overwhelming and difficult to know where to turn, which book to read and what magazine article to trust.

“My approach gives parents the confidence to understand their child’s unique personality so they can respond to their baby’s individual needs when it comes to feeding, sleeping and all the other issues which parents worry about – colic, reflux, illness, travel, siblings and pets.

“The show will be a terrific opportunity to address some of these concerns with parents and reassure them they are doing a fabulous job.”

Sarah will give a talk on ‘Sleep Optimisation’ when she attends the show, which attracts 70,000 visitors across the three days.

She will be joined on stage by expert speakers including weaning specialist and fellow author Annabel Karmel, the Sleep Nanny Lucy Shrimpton and baby and language expert Dr Robert Titzer.
