Ann Richardson

Qualified nurse and midwife Ann Richardson, the sense-able baby and toddler expert, has worked in the midwifery and paediatric fields for 30 years. Most of this has been in private practice, after she introduced the first private well-baby clinics, now a well-known phenomenon at Doctors’ rooms and pharmacies across the country.

Passionate about her work and dedicated to ensuring that parents have the necessary knowledge to enjoy and rejoice in their children, she regularly lectures to both professionals and parents on various baby and childcare issues, in particular the effects of the sensory system on infant behaviour, and the management of sleeping disorders. Her specialisation is the treatment of “difficult babies and toddlers”, in particular those with feeding and sleeping disorders. She is a regular contributor to nursing journals, internet sites, childcare publications, TV shows and magazines. Ann is married to Ken, and has 2 daughters, Ellen and Maeve, and lives and practices in Johannesburg. She also co-authored Baby Sense and Sleep Sense.

“Consulting with Ann Richardson on Toddler sense has enriched a friendship born from common interests. Our shared mission was to empower parents through knowledge in understanding their children’s sensory system and its impact on their development.”
Kerry Wallace (Occupational therapist)
