About Margaret

I’m Margaret Farmer and my professional background is in General Nursing, Midwifery and Maternal and Child Health nursing.

My husband and I live in Geelong and we have young adult children.

I’ve been assisting Geelong families in their early parenting experience for over 30 years, first working in Maternal & Child Health Centres, and then for Barwon Health at the Early Parenting Day Stay Program and now in private consulting practice.

For the last 17 years my specialist focus has been in addressing infant feeding and sleeping difficulties.

As SleepNanny I assist parents who are concerned about their baby’s feeding and sleeping routine (or lack of!).

Very often infant sleep problems are associated with the baby having difficulty in falling asleep on his/her own, or being unable to re-settle back to sleep when still tired. If you have ruled out other causes of sleep difficulties and if you are now ready to take the next step in having your baby/young child learn to sleep independently, I can support you with this.

The outcome we all want is settled, contented babies who feed and sleep well, or toddlers and children, who no longer have sleep problems.

The overwhelming successful outcomes make this wonderful rewarding work for me.
