Pinky McKay asks, how could it look for us if we stop seeing surrender as a dirty word, as giving up or giving in?
In her work and personally, lactation consultant and author of Parenting by Heart, Pinky knows first-hand how the effects of increasing pressure to be busy and in control affect us all. With gentleness and humour she shows us how to surrender and block out the noise so we can be present and strengthen
all of our relationships.
Pinky McKay specialises in gentle parenting styles that honour mothers’ natural instincts. Her ‘get real’ and no-nonsense approach, combined with humour, wit and wisdom, makes her a regular source for large TV networks and various international publications. She is a lactation consultant IBCLC and author of four titles, including Parenting by Heart.

A hard but invaluable lesson in life. Thanks for sharing your stories and thoughts Pinky :17/06/2015
Thank you for sharing. I had a baby led routine from the very start. Reading pinky blog and Facebook posts just reassured me that what I was doing was right. I'm so glad I haven't wasted precious moments with my little girl worrying about routines.
