Now that we have the important facts out of the way let me tell you a little more about myself.
Becoming a parent for the first time (and second...) can be very overwhelming even if you have a supportive partner. I know because I totally felt it when our boys were born. I became a little isolated and my confidence was pretty low. Although I wasn't really aware of it at the time...the joys of hindsight!
My drive is to support women and couples through this journey.
My mission to do this included building a space that is welcoming, safe, warm and relaxing for everybody that comes through it's doors. Studio Blossom has become that space. It is somewhere you can escape from the outside world.
In 2018, along with trained midwife Wendy Wood, we launched The Little Birth Company. We have developed a number of birthing workshops and a wonderful Hypnobirthing programme and Hypnobirthing Instructor Training Programme.
The ethos of The Little Birth Company is to provide antenatal education that is all inclusive and supports any birth choice. We have a Positive Caesarean Birth Workshop as well as Pregnancy Relaxation Classes.
The Little Birth Company is taught by instructors in the Uk and around the world. We have also recently announced our partnership with The Royal Surrey County Hospital Maternity Ward who are now teaching The Little Birth Company Hypnobirthing Programme.
We have more visits with hospital trusts planned throughout 2019 so you may well see our programme in a number of hospitals over the next few years.
At Studio Blossom I teach all of The Little Birth Company programmes.
As it is when you become a parent it is also pretty overwhelming when you set up a business on your own. Our instructors become part of our family and we have a super supportive network. This includes practical business support as well as the emotional support.

Some of my any relevant Qualifications:
*Level 4 in Children's Care, Learning & Education.
*Baby wearing peer support
*Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner
Each of these qualifications has brought a new aspect to what I can offer you at Studio Blossom.
When it comes to birth I have realised that it is a combination of things that will prepare you the best to meet your baby. As well as the emotional preparation I have incorporated both physical and practical aspects into my Hypnobirthing and Birth Preparation classes. Please go to the relevant page to read more about these classes.
Aside from by birth and baby classes I have a passion for family wellbeing. I love spending time in the studio recording relaxation MP3's. You can find some of them on my YouTube channel. Here is one for your children to enjoy at bedtime.
