My name is Annie Reid.
I live in Mid Devon and have previously worked as a midwife, health visitor and psychotherapist. I now work independently as Early Days Support so that I can spend more time focusing on supporting wellbeing and strong connections between babies and parents.
I bring to Early Days Support my broad experience and a passionate belief in the importance of mothering. I believe the partner has a crucial role in supporting mother and baby, that facilitates family wellbeing. I believe communication and mutual appreciation for your different roles are key and that both parents benefit from support to enable them to do the exceptional job that is caring for a newborn baby.
My role is to bring out the best in you – your resourcefulness, courage and confidence in your ability to communicate with your baby and meet their needs to enable them to reach their potential.
These include Midwifery (DipHE University of Plymouth, Distinction), Health Visiting (BScHons Specialist Community Public Health Nursing, University of Greenwich, First Class) and Psychotherapy (Diploma Core Process Psychotherapy, Karuna Institute, Devon). I am trained in Newborn Behavioural Observations (The Brazelton Centre UK) and in Breastfeeding Management (UNICEF). I have also led group antenatal classes and breastfeeding sessions.
I am currently training in Integrative Baby Therapy, which works with babies and their families.
