I attended yoga dn meditation workshops at Yoga Barn (Bali), Bridget Woods Kramer (Bali), Yoga Therapy  at Union Yoga Ayurveda. I have a Teacher's Diploma with Yoga Vendanta Training Academy Shiva Yoga Kendra, Vivekananda School of Yoga and Birthlight UK (Perinatal/Postnatal Diploma). It have been a fulfilling 20+ years of teaching and helping as many people as I can through yoga and living a healthy lifestyle. Please join me at our prenatal and postnatal yoga classes.

I moved from the Philippines and have been in the senior customer service position at Mother & Child since 2013.

I offer child development assessments at eight months, eighteen months and 2.5 years by appointment. I can also advise on sleep issues, diet and expected growth development of your baby/toddler.

Kaaveri M

Yoga instructor

I have been teaching yoga and fitness classes for over twenty years. I started my career as a fitness instructor conducting aerobics, power walking, pilates, martial arts, circuit training and gym work classes. In search of something more holistic, I intensified my interest with the practice of yoga in 1999 and completed the professional yoga training in Singapore and overseas. I specialized in the practice of hatha Yoga for adults, astanga yoga for children and in pre/post natal yoga for expectant mothers and new mothers. I truly enjoy guiding our clients through the yoga practice and in helping them relax and feel refreshed through our yoga sessions.


Nicky Treadwell

Registered nurse, ASHI authorised First-aid & CPR instructor

Kia ora. I am a New Zealand qualified Registered Nurse and Plunket nurse and looked after babies up to the age of five years in the community. As an area of interest, I also completed a post graduate course in Plastic Reconstruction Surgery and Care in Paediatrics (cleft palate, hypospadias, cranio facial surgery, etc.) More recently, I have been working as a Youth Health Nurse Specialist prior to relocating to Singapore with my husband in 2014.

I understand the stresses of relocating and being away from previous support systems offered by friends and family. I fully understand the joys and challenges of parents as I raised my three children. I look forward to seeing you at our Well Baby Drop-in sessions and New Mums Get Together groups. I also teach First Aid & CPR/AED. I really enjoy teaching and working with clients in the relaxed and casual style at Mother & Child. I have a strong interest in parents/caregivers as first teachers and the importance of learning through play. I am a registered nurse with the Singapore Nursing Board.

Rachael Campbell

IBCLC lactation coNSULTANT, midwife and childbirth educator

I am a British trained Midwife, and have been a member of the Royal College of Midwives since 2006. My clinical midwifery experience spans across prenatal, labour, delivery and postnatal care, both within the UK’s largest tertiary stand-alone Women’s and Maternity Hospital and in the community that it serves.

Apart from being ‘Mum/Mummy’ to my three gorgeous boys (I’m biased), being a midwife is just the best, most humbling and rewarding experience. I am passionate about woman-centred, individualised and holistic care which, by providing clients with up-to-date and research-based information through prenatal education and preparation for childbirth, enables you to make informed choices and decisions in conjunction with your obstetrician.

After relocating to Singapore with my husband and three boys, I am so excited to be part of the Mother and Child team. It is a privilege to be able to support women and families here in Singapore at such an exciting time in their lives.

Breastfeeding support has been an integral part of my previous postnatal experience. I look forward to meeting you at ‘Mother and Child’ where I will be facilitating antenatal courses, active birth classes, well-baby drop-in, first-aid courses and lactation consultations, both pre and postnatally, in addition to home visits.


Uma Thambidurai

Registered midwife, Senior IBCLC Lactation consultant

I am a British trained nurse/midwife and an IBCLC lactation consultant. I commenced my career almost forty years ago because of my passion in working with mothers and babies. My career took me to the UK, Malaysia, Australia and Singapore. I am passionate and love my role in mothers and their babies as a lactation consultant.

I continue to enjoy my role as Director at Mother and Child since 2005. Our team strive to serve the needs of the community of expectant couples and new parents and their babies. I am privileged to work with an exceptional team of health professionals, ancillary service professionals and customer service executives who share the same passion as I do in working with mothers, their partners and babies. I have two grown up children; a daughter and son.
