BABY ON BOARD - MOTHER IS DRIVING!
Lyndsay Morgan was born in Otaki, on the Kapiti Coast in 1942 - one of twin girls.
EDUCATION AND CAREER
Lyndsay’s education started at a small country school, Te Horo Primary School, followed by education in Shannon, Levin and three years in St Mary’s Diocesan School in Stratford, Taranaki.
Her infant-care career began in 1959 when she trained at a Karitane Hospital in Wanganui – which at the time was one of five specialist Karitane Hospitals in New Zealand.
She travelled to the United Kingdom by ship in 1963, going through the Panama Canal on her 21st birthday. After a stint in Canberra, Australia, looking after her sister’s first born child, Lyndsay returned to New Zealand to take up employment at Glaxo Laboratories in Palmerston North.
I highly recommend Lynday's book. Don't let it out of your sight - read it once, read it twice and read it again because you will need her calm, reassuring advice on a daily basis till you settle into your new role as a mother.
Tauranga Plunket recommended Lyndsay. She was the answer to our preyers and within days her strict routine changed all our lives. Her knowledge of the care of babies is amazing.
Lyndsay came in and transferred our lives within 24 hours. I wish I had had this book when my darling child was a new-born. I would have especially taken note of the sleeping chapter! As my husband wrote a cheque, he said 'if we had 1 million in the bank we would give it to you!'
Lyndsay filled me with self belief, told me about 'routine', leaving baby Shawn to self settle and then she offered to see me her book 'Baby on Board - Mum is Driving' in manuscript form. WOW - everything is going well and now I thank Lyndsay every time I refer to the book.
