" I gave birth to my first child in 2011, I suffered from post natal depression and was struggling to make a connection and soothe my baby due to my own anxieties related to my depression - Helena’s approach was gentle, caring and she helped me build confidence in my own mothering abilities to settle and soothe my lil boy. She gave me simple and attainable strategies which allowed me to build a bond with my son (as my confidence grew) - thank you Helena I appreciated all that input and you persistence with helping me find my way with my child. Your approach was non judgemental and a breath of fresh air given my maternal health nurse made me feel like I was doing everything wrong - can’t thank you enough" xx
“Helena made me feel calm as she helped me navigate my troubles with feeding my second baby in those early weeks. She came up with more options to try that made me feel less stressed, and before I knew it my little boy was feeding so well and I was feeling a lot happier and enjoying being a new mum of two. Helena's approach was gentle and caring, she listened to me through some tough days and gave me the inspiration to keep persisting. I'm so grateful for Helena's help, support and care and can't thank her enough for being there for me and my boys.”

“I have been fortunate enough to have experienced the abundance of support and knowledge shared to me by Helena Gifford (founder of Beyond Bump: Prenatal and Postnatal Support) throughout my successful pregnancies; the birth and ongoing development of my children as well as phenomenal support during the stillbirth of my son and multiple miscarriages.
Helena has heightened to me, the importance of taking care of myself as the mother and matriarch of my family so I can be the best person I can be for my children, husband and family.
Helena has provided such immense support, to myself and my family, both mentally and emotionally, and we are so fortunate to have had her share our evolution as a growing blended family.”
