Why we’re different

Our workshops are designed and taught by paediatric nurse Leila, who has worked in A&E treating the sickest of children. The workshops explore common childhood illnesses, explaining how to recognise them, manage them, and when to seek medical attention. Every workshop has first aid skills incorporated into them, allowing parents to confidently deliver CPR and choking if ever required. We tailor each workshop to our clients needs, to ensure they get the most out of the session.

Founder’s story

About Leila

Leila Saadi grew up in a large family and it became evident early that she had both a love and affinity for working with children. After toying with the idea of becoming a primary school teacher like her childhood heroine, Ms. Honey from Matilda. Leila eventually settled on a career as a paediatric nurse.

Soon after gaining her qualification in 2014, Leila went on to work on a fast paced and demanding general paediatric ward. She has gained numerous qualifications since then and has gone on to divide her time between working in a senior role as a paediatric emergency department sister and working with children who have complex needs in the community palliative care setting.
The mix of knowledge and experience she has gained, both in treating a range of critical illnesses in children, as well as managing children within the home setting, with all the challenges that brings, was the inspiration for setting up Newborn and Beyond. Her mission is to educate, enable and empower parents using the skills that she has cultivated during her training and professional career. Leila is also now completing her masters to become an advanced nurse practitioner.  

Despite having many commitments in her professional life Leila has a keen interest in Health and Lifestyle management.
