About the trainer:


The course is instructed by Julie Heginbottom, experienced Maternity Nurse and Sleep Consultant. Julie has 23 year’s experience in childcare including as a nanny, maternity nurse and sleep consultant. She holds an NNEB, a degree in Early Years and is a qualified nutritional therapist, childcare tutor and assessor. Julie has worked extensively with many different families through her own consultancy and aims to empower parents, finding solutions that fit their lifestyle and philosophy rather than advocating a one-size-fits-all approach. As a trainer Julie applies these same principles, prioritising up-to-date, essential information but allowing each student to find their own niche. Julie has collaborated with HATA on a wide range of courses, bringing us her considerable experience and perspective as a nanny and maternity nurse.

The course team also includes Carmen Pagor, RN (child), RHV, IBCLC.

Carmen Pagor is a trained nursery nurse, Registered Children’s Nurse, Health Visitor and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). She has extensive experience in acute and community settings and in health promotion and preventative work. To become an IBCLC she undertook specialist education in human lactation, completed over 1000 clinical hours supporting breastfeeding mothers and their babies and sat the board certification examination. She enjoys supporting families to achieve their breastfeeding goals and sharing her experience and knowledge to equip HATA learners with the skills to nurture families and provide up to date, research based care.
