At The Lemon Tree I have the pleasure of working alongside some fantastic professionals, in Surrey, Sussex & surrounding areas that offer services you might find beneficial or be interested in antenatally and also when your baby has arrived.

Gemma Pilkington – GP Physiotherapy

Women’s Health Specialist

Hi I’m Gemma and I believe in a bespoke, holistic & caring approach to treating patients. There is no one way as everyone is different with varying symptoms and personal goals. As an experienced and dedicated women’s health physiotherapist I have had the privilege of treating a wonderful mix of inspiring women. Being able to improve their health & restore their happiness is hugely fulfilling.

Laura Shaw – Laura Shaw Photography

Professional Photographer
Specialising in pregnancy, newborn & family photography

“I love photographing people’s faces. Their natural expressions and reactions around people they love is the inspiration for my photography. As women we create life within our bodies, sustaining their lives for 9 miraculous months. I feel this journey is one that needs to be documented and treasured. For me, capturing this transformation from woman to mother is as important as capturing a bride and groom on their wedding day”. Based in West Sussex

Andrew Shaw

Personal Trainer – The Better Body Company

As a Personal Trainer I work with various health and gym groups and general population clients. I work with a range of clients of all abilities helping them with their body transformations. Some clients are mother’s looking to get back to their pre pregnancy physique and some clients I work with have struggled to get up the stairs to the gym floor because of their weight when they first came to me. To help these people improve their health and stack years onto their life is very rewarding. Along with presenting seminars on health and fitness to schools and businesses I have been fortunate enough to interview some of the most respected people in the fitness industry.

If you need some help with finding your body confidence post pregnancy whether it be weight loss, becoming fitter and stronger or improving your health, all the help you need is here. Based in Crawley – West Sussex

Roxy O’Brien

Sleep Consultant

Hi I’m Roxy and I am a qualified Sleep Consultant providing online & home consultations, supporting families with gentle sleep solutions specific to their child & parenting style
My approach is holistic to ensure success, leading to positive long-term changes. I don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach. When your child is not sleeping, it can have a huge impact on your own well-being as well as your child’s & the entire family. I know this all too well having two children myself. The sleepless nights felt consuming, emotional & draining. Well-meaning family & friends as well as the late night google searching only lead to further uncertainty. My solutions & strategies, alongside bespoke support packages remove all uncertainty. They will leave you feeling empowered, confident & supported, clearing the way for healthy development, strong attachments & confident sleepers.
