Messages of thanks Diver family.

Dear Lyn, Thank you so much for all your love, help and support through all my pregnancies and deliveries and for always being there for us mums and mums to be! You will be greatly missed.

Much love Sally, Adam and all the Diver boys xx Jody Quinnell and family.

Dear Lyn, As a young mum 16 years ago I remember thinking you were the baby whisperer because you had such a calming way with my babies and with me. Now after having your support through two more pregnancies I know you are THE baby whisperer and I want to thank you for giving me confidence as a parent, being totally non-judgmental and believing in me and all the lucky mums in our community – you helped us through the good and the tough times and you will be so missed.

Thank you for absolutely everything Lyn, your one in a million and always knew how to encourage, relax and empower me to be the better version of myself for my beautiful baby boy Jax-Hunter. Your endless support and guidance was for me was simply amazing, being a first time mum was so overwhelming and your calming presence was all I needed to bring my spirits back up again and move forward. Good luck in your next chapter and once again THANK YOU, you will be very sadly missed.

Love always Ashlea Pearce and Jax-Hunter xxx Emilia and Katrina Mastronardi.

Thank you Lyn for your kind and gentle support, both for prenatal classes and also for your visits after Emilia was born. I will always remember your friendly and gentle reassurance during those challenging (but wonderful!) first weeks as a new mother.
